    Modules that ADAudit Plus has to offer

    Event processing engine

    All events that are fetched from the network are processed here before they are stored in the database or a corresponding alert is triggered. It filters logs which aren't needed—as configured by the administrator—and normalizes raw logs to standard formats.

    Alerts engine

    Sends out email or SMS notifications based on the configured alert profiles.

    Audit Database

    Stores raw and normalized log information from configured devices across your network. ADAudit Plus comes bundled with a PostgreSQL database, users can also choose to use Microsoft SQL databases if needed.

    Analytics engine

    Collects information and models a baseline of normal activities to define dynamic thresholds. When an anomaly is detected, an alert is triggered.
