Set alerts for groups

Background / Value

Employees receive their access rights through group memberships. Especially sensitive groups grant access to secret folders and other important resources. 8MATE AD Logga allows you to actively monitor specific AD groups so that an alert is received if new members are added.


Due to the nested group structures in Active Directory it is important to monitor group memberships, that occur from new indirect memberships. For example: The group "secret data" is a member in the "C-Level" group which is being monitored. 8MATE AD Logga alerts will notify you even if members are only added to the "secret data" group since these users are also indirect members of the "C-Level" group.
