BeyondTrust Introduces Free Tool for Auditing Google Apps
Aug 12, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
BeyondTrust, a provider of Context-Aware Security Intelligence, announced the release of PowerBroker Auditor for Google Apps, available immediately, for free, to the BeyondTrust user community.
PowerBroker Auditor for Google Apps was developed to ease the burdens associated with auditing these commonly used web applications for proper usage and compliance.
In a release, the company noted that according to Google, over 5 million businesses have made the shift to Google Apps for their cloud-based productivity efforts. Prior to the release of PowerBroker Auditor for Google Apps, IT admins have had to deal with the time consuming task of manually gathering audit events and creating reports for operations management, security and compliance officers, and internal and external auditors. Now, organizations are able to track and understand configuration changes and administrative activities for security and compliance reporting.
"While Google Apps is a great productivity suite for organizations, it's become a bit of a compliance headache for IT admins who are already resource-constrained by the need to prove ongoing compliance to critical government regulations," said Brad Hibbert, executive vice president of product strategy and operations at BeyondTrust. "Our goal at BeyondTrust is to give customers the visibility and controls necessary to reduce their IT security risks, while at the same time simplifying their compliance reporting. PowerBroker Auditor for Google Apps is doing just that."
PowerBroker Auditor for Google Apps allows IT administrators to track and report on a range of changes, including: users, groups, roles, email, calendar, chat, mobile, and more. With this new offering, events can be retrieved live for immediate review or collected on a desired schedule and saved in a database for historical reporting. Key user and event types can be filtered and reports can be exported to Excel, PDF and Word for further filtering, sorting and sharing.
BeyondTrust is a security solution vendor providing Context-Aware Security Intelligence.
