NetWrix VMware Change Reporter
Change auditing is an important process for controlling the management of your virtual environment, to limit unauthorised changes and errors in VMware inventory. Erroneous and unauthorised changes usually occur every day in organisations in which many IT professionals manage different aspects of virtual infrastructure. Such changes can cause failures and outages in your virtual infrastructure and significantly contribute to virtual machine sprawl.
Powered by AuditAssurance™ technology, NetWrix VMware Change Reporter audits all changes and enforces controlled change management processes across your virtual environment. This tool sends a daily report pointing to every change made to your ESX servers, folders, clusters, resource pools, virtual machines, and their hardware, including previous and current ("before" and "after") configuration values.
NetWrix VMware Change Reporter can be used to:
- Overview configuration changes on a daily basis to improve internal IT governance;
- Prepare reports for your IT compliance auditors, such as SOX, HIPAA, GLBA, and others;
- Audit the creation of new virtual machines to prevent uncontrolled virtual machine sprawl;
- Supported VMware platforms: VI3 or later, vSphere, ESX, ESXi.
The product can be installed separately, but also is available as a part of an integrated NetWrix Change Reporter Suite that automates auditing of the entire IT infrastructure.
