Active Directory changes daily, yet most IT organizations are unaware of the changes until something breaks. This leads to downtime, loss of productivity, and higher cost. Becoming proactive and more aware is part of the overall IT optimization strategy. The Active Directory Change Notifier is an invaluable resource when IT organizations are developing a proactive approach to managing their infrastructure.
This application proactively tracks and reports on any changes that occur within your domains. Simply install this product, configure it, and you’ll get notified in real time of any modifications to your Directory Services. You’ll know right away the object, type, date/time, details of what changed, and most importantly, who made the changes. All changes are recorded and stored in a log file. This file can be archived and will help you navigate the security and compliance audits.
Companies take a lot of precautions against unauthorized access to the AD infrastructure. However, preventive and protective measures are not always enough to find the cause of a break-in if it does occur. For that purpose, infrastructure and security configuration should be constantly audited, enabling you to investigate problems and minimize the effects of adverse changes.
In IT, change is normal. However, these changes should not go unwatched. The consequences of adverse or malicious changes can be very expensive for any business to correct. Real time notifications are key- they will save many hours of troubleshooting and the expense of having your business processes disrupted.
In any company, changes vary by consequences and disruptions they cause. The deletion of a legitimate group in use is a more serious issue than the modification of that group's description. Even more serious is the addition of unauthorized user accounts to the Domain Admins group. The response time for such changes needs to be as short as possible.
Unmanaged changes are a problem in every company. They are THE primary cause of outages. If they are not prevented, the company will fail a security audit. However, even planned changes should be monitored to ensure that policies are being followed.
The Active Directory Change Notifier will raise the operational efficiency of your IT organization.
