NetWrix launches digital surveillance tool

Share this article:

A tool that records user activity for security, compliance, audit and troubleshooting has been launched by NetWrix.

Called the User Activity Video Reporter tool, it said that it acts like a surveillance camera for critical servers and other IT systems by capturing metadata during the recording process, which allows IT administrators to fast- forward or link directly to specific tasks or actions.

Available as a standalone product or as part of the powerful NetWrix Change Reporter Suite, it said that the monitoring software provides complete visibility of IT systems and applications that may not produce logs or enough information to investigate user behaviour.

Aidan Simister, country manager (UK & Ireland) for NetWrix, said: “Complete visibility over critical IT systems can be difficult, inefficient and expensive, but without ‘who, what, when and where' audit detail, vital issues can go undetected and unresolved, risking security and compliance as well as compromising auditing requirements and troubleshooting.

“Our new User Activity Video Reporter captures every single user action for forensic review without having to filter through thousands of hours of activity or reports.”
