Report on changes in Active Directory

Background / Value

The AD Logga allows you to monitor current processes in your Active Directory. ARM even captures all changes made with native tools including temporary changes. From a security perspective any actions related to event types and event authors are extremely important.

 

Monitoring of event types

Changes to:

  • Attributes
  • Users
  • Computers
  • Groups
  • Passwords
  • Accounts
  • Members

 

Monitoring of event authors

  • Users
  • Groups
  • Computers

 

Note: Additionally you are able to filter according to object class and attribute. Please note that these settings are geared towards expert users. If you apply a filter for a rare object this may cause the report to deliver unexpected results.
