Active Directory Auditing and Reporting
Active Directory Audit Reports
ADAudit Plus has a plethora of reports to help an administrator identify change events that are logged in security logs of Domain Controllers. Active Directory changes related to User Logon events, Domain Policy changes, and User, Group and Computer objects management are audited and reported. The reports are Off-the-Shelf and Out-of-the-box to help easy understanding of event viewer data. The native event log is difficult to comprehend by a naive user considering the data volumes and expertise required to decipher change actions logged in the Domain Controller, which ADAudit Plus change reporting software makes possible with ease.

Report Profile based reports which can be custom configured is an advanced feature. This is a highlight of ADAudit Plus which facilitates reporting to granular detail by using filters. Change audit events are reported by associating audit actions and one or more account objects with report profiles and facilitate granular reporting. The advantage of using a Report Profile based report makes the process of granular report generation on audit actions easier.
ADAudit Plus also provides a graphical display, highlighting the summary of each report. Further dashboard views of most important change events facilitate easier understanding. The dashboard view uses tools like trend lines, pie charts and bar graphs to review summarized report data.
