NetIQ Change Guardian - Protect critical data, reduce risk and manage change with NetIQ Change Guardian

Reducing risk to sensitive data and vital infrastructure is your number one goal. The greatest threat comes from unmanaged changes to files and systems that weaken enterprise security, leave systems vulnerable, and could leave the door wide open to a crippling insider attack.

Change Guardian products increase protection of critical systems and sensitive data by reducing the risk of accidental or malicious changes that could weaken security controls or impact the availability of vital infrastructure technology.

  • Change Guardian specifically enables security teams to:
  • Provide real-time file integrity monitoring
  • Monitor privileged user activity
  • Categorize changes as authorized or unauthorized
  • Reduce the flood of security events to the ones that matter
  • Provide real-time alerting of changes
  • Gather information for audit and analysis
  • Deliver rich event information including before and after values
