New Active Directory Auditing Tool

Looking to simplify the auditing of Active Directory (AD) changes, Ensim created Ensim Unify Audit Manager, a tool designed to audit all critical changes to AD domain services and Group Policy. Audit Manager was designed and engineered specifically for Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2  and offers a centralized collection store, a web front-end, and a web-based GUI, and it doesn't require  installing client software.


“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,”says Scott Young, vice president of marketing and product management at Ensim. Audit Manager can be purchased separately or as part of the Ensim Unify Enterprise integrated suite of tools.

Audit Manager is available on a limited basis to qualified customers and will be generally available in late spring 2010. See Ensim's website to learn more.

There are several third-party vendors that offer quality Active Directory auditing tools. As based on last year’s Windows IT Pro Community Choice Awards, ScriptLogic Active Administrator, NetWrix Active Directory Change Reporter and Quest Auditor for Active Directory are amongst the peoples’ favorites. In my experience, all three have their strong points. From a very basic standpoint, Quest offers more bells and whistles (of course, at a higher price) than the others, NetWrix offers a free version of Active Directory Change Reporter, and ScriptLogic Active Administrator lands somewhere in the middle.

Ive heard a lot about AuditManager, does anyone have any experience with it? Were currently using netwrix AD change reporter, which has worked well for our change auditing needs, but Im just wondering how they compare and if AuditManager has any additional capabilities.
