, Updated Netwrix Auditor extends access security and governance to Office 365

Netwrix, a vendor of information security and governance software, today announced the release of Netwrix Auditor 9.9, which enables organisations to strengthen control over access to minimise the risk of data leaks and enforce the least-privilege model enterprise-wide.

“The key to data security is to establish effective access control across the entire IT environment, especially if data is also stored in the cloud. Organisations often struggle with this challenge because of the diversity of IT systems, data assets and high number of users. Our new release adds capabilities that enable customers to tell which data stored in Office 365 is at risk and whether any users have been granted unnecessary privileges, so organisations can address the issues before it results in data leaks, compliance failures and business disruptions,” said Steve Dickson, CEO of Netwrix.

New features available in Netwrix Auditor 9.9 enable organisations to:

Secure data stored in Office 365

Netwrix Auditor for Office 365 streamlines privilege attestations by delivering clear insight into user permissions to data stored in SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business, as well as delegate access in Exchange Online. By regularly identifying and removing excessive permissions, organisations can mitigate the risk of privilege abuse, data leaks, compliance findings and business disruptions

Netwrix Auditor for VMware now empowers IT specialists to detect failed logons to ESXi hosts and vCenter in time to thwart attacks. It also helps them enforce access control by verifying that each successful logon was fully authorised, as required by many compliance regulations

Protect cloud applications against unauthorised access attempts

Netwrix Auditor for Active Directory now reports on Active Directory Federation Services logon attempts and provides actionable intelligence for incident investigation. This enables organisations to reduce the risk of attackers taking control of their business-critical cloud applications and prove compliance with less effort
