Improving accountability: auditing user activity

Centrify provides its auditing and analysis features through a combination of auditing components on Windows computers and the auditing features of the Centrify agent on the computers you manage. The auditing service includes several components to support the multi‑tier architecture of the auditing infrastructure. These components are installed on Windows computers to enable you to collect and store detailed information about user activity.

The central console for configuring the auditing infrastructure and managing audit-related features is Audit Manager. From Audit Manager, you can perform the following common administrative tasks:

  • View the status of all audited computers and the other components of the auditing infrastructure.
  • Manage the scope and security for auditing-related activity.
  • Set permissions for the tasks granted to specific auditors.

There is also a separate Audit Analyzer console for searching and replaying captured activity.
