Active Directory is the linchpin of virtually every enterprise, providing authentication, authorisation, auditing, permissions and configuration data to most IT services and applications. Monitoring access to Active Directory is the closest we can get to one-stop enterprise monitoring. Knowing who is using this information, what they're accessing it, how, and from where is a critical component of auditing user and system activity.
Not all Active Directory monitoring solutions are the same. You must select a monitoring solution that gathers, stores and reports on the information and events that are important to your organisation and that enable you to meet security and compliance requirements. Selecting a monitoring solution that examines LDAP queries directly is the most effective way to meet those needs. LDAP monitoring is a fundamentally different method; tracking, analysing, and reporting on LDAP queries enables richer reporting, captures more granular and powerful data and monitors Active Directory at a deeper level. And with the right tools, it is a simple and highly effective approach to seeing everything that happens in your IT environment.
