Ensim Announces New Auditing Solution for Windows Server 2008/R2

Ensim Unify Audit Manager to Simplify Tracking Critical Changes to Active Directory

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/06/10 -- Ensim Corporation, the leading provider of user provisioning and change management software today announced Ensim Unify Audit Manager, a new tool created to simplify the Windows 2008 event logging process by auditing all critical changes to Active Directory domain services and group policy.

Ensim Unify Audit Manager was designed and engineered specifically for Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 to provide security administrators and auditors with a location-independent, lightweight auditing solution. Audit Manager is architected with a centralized collection store and a web front-end designed specifically for environments using the next generation of Active Directory.

By providing a web-based, graphical user interface to clearly and concisely report and analyze events, Ensim Unify Audit Manager allows administrators and audit team members to access a centralized audit management system without requiring installation of client software.

"As a company looking to streamline the management of our Windows infrastructure, we were pleased to find Ensim is offering an affordable solution to help us with our infrastructure compliance and security," said Robert Marte, director of technology services at FreshDirect.

Key features include:

  • An enterprise-scalable architecture that can be easily deployed in small or large enterprises
  • An extremely efficient audit and search engine optimized for SQL
  • Built-in reports providing detailed user information for any critical changes made to Active Directory
  • On-demand or scheduled reports providing best-of-breed tools for the security administrator or auditor
  • Non-intrusive agents that work in conjunction with Windows Event Logs

"When a employee makes unauthorized changes, it's the system administrator who is responsible for diagnosing and correcting the mishap, which often takes hours to identify," said Scott Young, vice president of marketing and product management at Ensim Corporation. "Since the acquisition of NetPro by Quest, there has been an increasing need in the market to fill the price/performance gap and effectively track changes in Active Directory. Ensim Unify Audit Manager fills this gap by providing an affordable solution that builds upon and improves the capabilities of Windows Server 2008 audit and event logging, making it easy to identify what changes were made and by whom."
