A Free Tool Both Admins and Auditors Will Like

For an admin, making the auditor happy is NOT the goal in life. It’s to keep things running, squeeze in improvements, implement new products and do it with a work force that is always too small.

For an auditor, getting information to build a complete report, with all the test information, means acquiring facts, facts, facts. As inexpensively as possible, so that the boss AND the client are happy.

So I’m delighted to report that a free tool, WinAudit, from the fine folks at PXServer, is available to download and a very fine tool for reporting.

It runs on a single server at a time (which is great for a small business), and gives very detailed information on operating system versions, patches installed, users, groups (including domain controllers) password policies and last login, as well as a whole lot more. Give it a go.
