Netwrix Corporation, a provider of a visibility platform for user behavior analysis and risk mitigation in hybrid environments, announced the release of Netwrix Auditor 9.5, providing customers with security intelligence to proactively reduce risk and spot threat actors.

New features available in Netwrix Auditor 9.5 include:

Risk assessment Organizations can identify, prioritize and bridge the gaps in security, governance and compliance best practices specific to their IT environments, so they can proactively reduce their attack surface and thereby minimize the ability of intruders and insiders to steal data or cause damage.

Behavior anomaly discovery.Customers can better detect rogue insiders and accounts compromised by external attackers with a single aggregated view of anomalous activity by each individual. The associated risk scores enable them to prioritize incidents so they can investigate and determine the best response.

Permission analysis. Customers can gain peace of mind and ensure regulatory compliance by enforcing good access hygiene in Active Directory and Windows Server. The new security intelligence helps make certain that access rights in these backbone systems are in strict accordance with the least-privilege principle to limit the reach of both human and automated attacks.

API-enabled integrations. Additional free, ready-to-use add-ons empower customers to streamline their incident detection and response workflows and expand visibility across their IT environments. New integrations include Linux and Unix systems.

Netwrix Auditor is a visibility platform for user behavior analysis and risk mitigation that enables control over changes, configurations and access in hybrid IT environments to protect data regardless of its location. The platform provides security intelligence to identify security holes, detect anomalies in user behavior and investigate threat patterns in time to prevent real damage.
