Free tool for auditing Google Apps
BeyondTrust released PowerBroker Auditor for Google Apps, available for free, to the BeyondTrust user community. The tool was developed to ease the burdens associated with auditing these commonly used web applications for proper usage and compliance.
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 easily able to track and understand configuration changes and administrative activities for security and compliance reporting.
PowerBroker Auditor for Google Apps allows IT administrators to track and report on a wide range of changes, including: users, groups, roles, email, calendar, chat, mobile, and more.
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.
PowerBroker Auditor for Google Apps is available here (registration required).
