STEALTHbits Technologies, makers of an IT management and compliance platform for Microsoft-based systems, applications, and data repositories, has released StealthINTERCEPT Directory Authority, a new product line solving critical problems related to compliance, data leakage, and insider control by providing real-time, in-line analysis of and controls over any directory and file system changes.

Designed to work in concert with STEALTHbits’ StealthAUDIT Management Platform (SMP) or as a standalone solution, StealthINTERCEPT Directory Authority connects directly to directory and server processes to provide in-line activity analysis and subsequent event consolidation, archiving, reporting, and response, including alerting and blocking, thus avoiding all of the debilitating limitations of relying on event logs. Guided by a rules engine that enables the modeling of any organization’s security processes and concerns, StealthINTERCEPT dramatically streamlines administrator oversight, operational change control and compliance. StealthINTERCEPT provides the same level of control over Group Policy Objects to offer another critical security control to IT professionals.

“The need for more comprehensive security around AD is a growing requirement for most organizations, but mid-size organizations often struggle to keep tabs on changes to their AD environment,” said Scott Crawford, managing research director, Enterprise Management Associates.

StealthINTERCEPT allows enterprises to discover changes as they’re happening and thus proactively lock down objects to reduce unauthorized changes before they occur, giving mid-size organizations access to more advanced solutions priced for their budget.

StealthINTERCEPT Directory Authority includes a robust set of features that enable IT professionals to:

  • Provide forensics and control over improper insider activity

  • Rapidly identify accidental changes detrimental to IT operations, saving time on investigation, remediation, and preventing future occurrences

  • Utilize a single point of control for network directories and file systems, including Active Directory, eDirectory, Windows file servers and filers, and Novell File Systems

  • Easily ensure that organizational security policies are appropriately enforced

  • Dramatically reduce time invested in demonstrating compliance

  • Reduce the risk of data leakage

StealthINTERCEPT Directory Authority is available immediately through STEALTHbits and through select channel partners. Pricing starts at $12 per network user for Active Directory. For more information, visit www.stealthbits.com/.
