Introduction to Cygna Auditor for Active Directory

Product Overview

A single change to Active Directory (AD) and Group Policy configurations can endanger your entire organization; affecting productivity, risking security breaches and non-compliance. However, built-in Active Directory auditing tools are cumbersome and lack centralized auditing and reporting capabilities.

Analysis of native security logs requires enormous resources and still fails to show the entire scope of AD activity. Cygna Auditor for Active Directory provides a new level of centralized control and ease to AD auditing and compliance. This powerful solution monitors AD and Group Policy in real time, tracking the who, what, where, and when for every change.
