One of the best security solutions I ever used!

5.0 last year

Comments: In security, to have a product which is so easy to use, not too expensive and to get all the information you ever wanted, I always thought that this doesn't exist, until our company didn't started to work with Netwrix.

Pros:

The comprehensive auditing capabilities and real-time alerting system were the aspects I liked most about Netwrix Auditor. Additionally, the user-friendly interface and customizable reports were highly appreciated. The software's support for compliance requirements and easy deployment/integration were also significant advantages. Lastly, the knowledgeable customer support provided by Netwrix was another positive aspect that stood out to me.

Cons:

Although Netwrix Auditor offers many valuable features, I found the initial setup process to be somewhat challenging. However, once I overcame that hurdle, the overall experience was positive.

Comments: Used it for going on 5 years on an on-premise VM, works extremely well, low maintenance and the search functionality is much better than other vendors I've used in the past. It would be nice if it had functionality like AI to look for behavioral anomalies.

Pros:

Ease of use and it was recommended to me by other Bankers at local conferences.

Cons:

Not available in a Linux appliance, would be nice if Netwrix come on a harden Linux appliance instead of running in Microsoft Windows/SQL.

Netwrix auditor does what is needs to but watch out for hidden cost

2.0 4 years ago

Comments: Started off ok, but when the extra bill came and rude sales guy started in we were more than happy to turn this off. We moved to a fully managed SOC.

Pros:

I liked I could get reports on who made changes to everything on my domain. I knew when someone adjusted a group policy, created a user, or made a change in SQL.

Cons:

We set this up to monitor employees only. We did not want to monitor students or service accounts because of the extra cost. The count on the user side showed 2000+ and we were not licensed. I opened a support ticket with the company and was told not to worry about it because it would just not monitor any user because of the license. I didn't like the answer, but it was still monitoring so much more. Then a year later I was hit with a huge bill because we had 2000+ people being monitored. We decided to just turn of the service.

Comprehensive Review of Netwrix Auditor

5.0 last week New

Comments: My overall experience with Netwrix Auditor has been positive, mainly due to its robust auditing tools and reliable security features. However, the complexity of the software necessitated a longer-than-expected period of adaptation.

Pros:

The best aspect of Netwrix Auditor is its detailed auditing capabilities. The platform provides deep visibility into user activities and system changes, which is invaluable for IT security and compliance. Its real-time alerts and detailed reports make monitoring network environments much easier.

Cons:

The least appealing feature of Netwrix Auditor is its complexity and steep learning curve. New users may find the interface and multitude of features overwhelming, which can complicate the initial setup and daily operations.

Powerful auditing but lacks modernization

4.0 last week New

Comments: Overall positive but we will not renew. The product needs a major overhaul to keep up

Pros:

Tons of reports out of the box. Easy to install and deploy the agent. Support was great. Auditing was easy to pull back old data

Cons:

No web interface, it requires a thick client to be installed. Limited RBAC. The whole interface needs updating
