QUEST
Change Auditor

Real-time security and IT auditing for your Microsoft Windows environment

Change reporting and access logging for Active Directory (AD) and enterprise applications is cumbersome, time-consuming and, in some cases, impossible when using native IT auditing tools. This often results in data breaches and insider threats that can go undetected without protections in place.

Fortunately, Change Auditor has answer. With Change Auditor, you get complete, real-time IT auditing, in-depth forensics and comprehensive security monitoring on all key configuration, user and administrator changes for Microsoft Active Directory, Azure AD, Exchange,Office 365, file servers and more. Change Auditor also tracks detailed user activity for logons, authentications and other key services across enterprises to enhance threat detection and security monitoring. A central console eliminates the need and complexity for multiple IT audit solutions

Benefits

Eliminate unknown security concerns, ensuring continuous access to applications, systems and users by tracking all events and those changes related to specific incidents.

Alleviate stress and complexity by automatically interpreting cryptic data and its severity for faster and better decision-making.

Mitigate security risks in seconds with real-time alerts to any device for immediate response, in or out of the office.

Reduce the performance drag on servers by collecting events without the use of native auditing.

Streamline compliance reporting, isolated for internal policies and external regulations, including SOX, PCI DSS, HIPAA, FISMA, SAS 70 and more.

Provide managers and auditors evidence of appropriate IT controls for peace of mind

QUEST
Enterprise Reporter

Simplified Microsoft platform security, compliance, reporting and remediation.

Security and system administrators have a broad range of responsibilities, including achieving and maintaining IT security and compliance across their Microsoft environments. But, as organizations grow both on premises and expand into the cloud, they often lack visibility in terms of users, groups, permissions, applications and more. This can result in compromised security and potential data loss. Knowing who can access what information in your Microsoft environment is imperative if you want to keep your data and users secure.

With Enterprise Reporter, you can gain visibility into critical configurations— no matter the Microsoft platform. Our comprehensive reporting solution enhances compliance with security best practices and internal policies while helping you ensure compliance with external regulatory mandates, including HIPAA, GDPR, PCI, SOX, FISMA, and more. And when paired with Security Explorer, you’ll be able to modify permissions quickly from within your reports. This means you can immediately close security vulnerabilities, reduce risk and ensure proper access while saving time. With the Quest solutions, you become more secure and compliant, with less administration, and can stay ahead of vulnerabilities to prevent breaches or data loss.

Benefits

Deliver real-time assessments into who has access to what resources across your Microsoft environment, both on premises and in the cloud

QUEST
Active Administrator

Simplified Active Directory management from a single console

Windows network administrators must increasingly manage critical Microsoft Active Directory environments more quickly and with fewer staff. Doing more with less increases the likelihood of accidental changes to Active Directory (AD) objects, configurations and Group Policy data that can raise your risk of hardware and software failure. The need to enforce internal policies and address compliance regulations only adds to the challenge. You need an all-inclusive, cost-efficient solution that can help you secure, manage, maintain, audit and prevent problems in AD and Group Policy environments.

Active Administrator is an extensive Active Directory management solution that allows you to control auditing, security, recovery and health for Active Directory from a single integrated console.

QUEST
GPO Admin

Simplify Group Policy (GPO) administration and management

As one of the most robust configuration tools in your Windows infrastructure, Group Policy plays a key role in establishing a secure and compliant networking environment for your users. Because Group Policy regulates everything – from critical business processes and security settings to individual workstations and printers – managing and administering Group Policy objects (GPOs) is an expensive, time-consuming task.

With GPO Admin, you can automate critical GPO management tasks and reduce your costs while eliminating time-intensive manual processes. Quickly and effectively administer changes toGPOs to support change management best practices, enable effective approval processes and secure your critical data. You can also easily verify, compare, update and roll back GPO versions over time to confirm the consistency of various GPO settings.

Human error, data breaches and hardware failures can easily corrupt your critical systems such as Active Directory (AD), Azure AD, Office 365 or Exchange. Cybercriminals are getting more sophisticated and launching more and more attacks every day. They put millions of users and organizational finances and reputations in jeopardy.
