Topic question, we are looking into AD Auditing and I would like to know if this solution is on-prem.
Yes, Adaxes is an on-premises AD Management software and can be installed on a domain-joined computer.
And I would like to know if there is a built in report to see ALL changes in AD within a time frame as well as see changes that occur after hours.
Adaxes logs only the operations performed via the software itself. Operations performed outside of Adaxes (e.g. using Active Directory Users and Computers) are not logged.
We have been using the free version of Netwrix and I can see when someone tries to access folders they do not have permissions to, is this something I can do with Adaxes?
Unfortunately, there is not such possibility. Adaxes only logs AD related operations such as logins, user updates, etc. Other operations (e.g. accessing folders on the file system, network activity) are not logged and cannot be viewed in Adaxes.
