Most logging tools are system and application centric, simply rolling up higher-level events and notifications; they do not show you what users actually did or attempted to do. Or they may indicate they edited a file, but not show what changes they made. DirectAudit lets you visually replay any user session on any audited system to see exactly what the user did: the commands executed, the changes made to key files and data, and the results.
In addition, other auditing products can only support a historical view of system activity. DirectAudit gives you a real-time, at-a-glance view of activity across Windows, UNIX and Linux. For each session you can see who is logged on, and you can immediately drill down to see what they are currently doing.

Built as a single architecture, Centrify Suite — consisting of DirectControl, DirectAuthorize, DirectAudit, DirectSecure and DirectManage — allows organizations to improve operational efficiency and strengthen security and compliance by consolidating islands of identity and centrally managing privilege and policy.
