    Pros
    I must also give kudos to the Netwrix helpdesk, as there are very knowledgeable and have assisted successfully on numerous occasions.
    I like that I have can a "one-stop shop" for all my auditing needs. Very easy to use and the support folks are great.
    Easy to use interface, daily/weekly reporting on important Active Directory events, Real-time alerting, real-time forensics with the intelligent search feature.
    Cons
    It gives us errors but doesn't explain exactly what the error is so we can fix it, it tracks windows 10 but has trouble tracking Windows 7 updates.
    Some of the plugins are hard to use. I have a hard time figuring out what is causing errors sometimes when it runs its nightly scans of my systems.
    Missing some real-time features and alerts. Difficult to Integrate with other auditing software.

    Great Tool for Sys Admins

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    Overall, I am extremely satisfied in this product for the features and function that save time. Having this tool has provided value several times over since installation several years ago, and the proof is in the pudding. It works and provides valuable insight into system health and the WHO, WHAT, WHEN and WHERE.

    Pros

    Easily identify the 4 W's: Who, what, when, where. Eliminates sifting through several event logs to find the relevant information. Allows easy investigation into changes not authorized or a failed system. Alerts easy to setup for notifications of items you need to know about.

    Cons

    Occasionally, services fail and don't stop, so monitoring the service doesn't tell you that there is a problem until it is too late. No preventative as I would like.

    Great tool for network visibility

    Reviewed 6 years ago

    I find visibility to be one of the greatest tools as a network manager. Netwrix gives me the ability to monitor file actions as well as account actions that may tip me off to a security breach on the network. Or, if an employee wants to know the exact reason a file went missing I am able to query Netwrix and provide an exact answer, even a screen capture of the event in progress if I wanted. With customizable notifications I am able to get on the spot information when specific events occur, like somebody attempting to log into a Domain Administrator's account without authorization. Though a little expensive, it is better to have the security Netwrix auditor provides than to allow a network breach go unnoticed until it is too late.

    Pros

    Easy to setup monitor AD, Logs, Events, etc customizable notifications visibility into files, Group Policy, Active Directory, Office 365, Azure, etc advanced features that help track down file actions, like screen captures or recordings of the actual event

    Cons

    The interface is sluggish can cause some network interference if not tuned properly cost

    This application has helped us to determine weaknesses in our server securities.

    Reviewed 7 years ago

    Monitor the usage of all our proprietary information and be able to track the specific computer and user.

    Pros

    Monitor our file server usages and provide detail reporting on abnormal access to sensitive information.

    Cons

    We are experiencing resource issues when the application is running. When running scan on the server over the WAN, the application seems to use a large amount of memory.
