SpyLogix for LDAP Directories discovers and monitors users, groups and attributes stored in identity systems based on the LDAP V3 specification. LDAP directories are used by applications to authenticate users and authorize access to use business information.
LDAP directories are critical audit points for information security, as this resource holds the “keys” for users accessing online business information. LDAP directories are widely used for securing user access to web applications on intranets or externally via the Internet. Linux or Unix based network applications also often use LDAP directories. Since it is difficult to consolidate many LDAP directories into one directory, companies have overtime have evolved multiple LDAP directories across the enterprise.
The natural consequence is for companies to manage each directory and its local log data individually, which leads to inefficiencies, lower productivity and rising costs for compliance initiatives. SpyLogix for Directories provide operational awareness and visibility into LDAPv3 directories. An on-demand discovery process records a baseline for each LDAP directory changes are recorded with date and time context. The result is a complete and independent historical analysis and reporting local network security audity system for enhanced management, risk control and compliance reporting with no reliance on log management.
