NetPro Introduces Powerful New Exchange and SQL Auditing Capability

Flagship Windows Auditing Solution Will Feature New SQL Server Module, Plus Comprehensive Exchange Auditing, Including Permission Change and Non-Owner Mailbox Alerting

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - March 3, 2008) - Directory Experts Conference 2008 -- Solidifying its leadership position in the Windows auditing space, NetPro Computing, Inc. today pre-announced the availability of ChangeAuditor 4.5. The new solution, available in Q2, will feature not only a new SQL Server module, but also comprehensive auditing for Exchange, including permission change and non-owner mailbox alerting.

NetPro's award-winning ChangeAuditor today includes modules for Active Directory, File Servers and Exchange. With version 4.5, NetPro dramatically enhances the breadth of its Windows auditing capabilities with a new SQL module that provides extensive, real-time configuration and security auditing and alerting for SQL 2000 and 2005. And it further enhances the depth of Active Directory and Exchange coverage with expanded Active Directory alerts and new Exchange Server alerting. The new Exchange Server auditing enables administrators to track and receive highly requested compliance audit events when mailbox levels change or certain activities occur, including when mailbox items are accessed by individuals or services who are not the mailbox owner.

"NetPro was designated as the market leader in Active Directory Auditing by the recent Active Directory Management Tools Wave published by Forrester Research," said Brad Hibbert, Vice President of Strategy for NetPro. "With the release of ChangeAuditor 4.5, that leadership position is cemented -- all for the good of our customers. Compliance and security remain the top two priorities among Microsoft IT pros, and comprehensive auditing for the key Windows technologies -- from Active Directory to Exchange and SQL -- is the first step to achieving both. We have developed our auditing modules to provide the critical information our customers need to be secure and compliant."
