Active Directory and Cloud Auditing

Improve the availability, security and compliance of your IT infrastructure and reduce costs and downtime with Cygna Labs products.

Active Directory and cloud auditing

According to a study by IDC, 80% of all network problems are caused by changes. Unintentional changes in file systems, Active Directory or critical applications such as Exchange or Office 365 can quickly lead to wide-ranging problems.

Our auditing and reporting solutions help you to avoid these problems and ensure permanent security and control, despite constant changes. Improve the security and compliance of your Active Directory, File Servers and Microsoft Applications, both in your own data centre and in the cloud, using built-in monitoring features, best practice procedures and extensive change auditing capabilities.

Cygna Labs’ products enable Organizations to improve the availability, security and compliance of their infrastructure, reduce costs associated with poor performance and downtime, and fulfill regulatory and internal compliance requirements.

After a long and successful partnership with Cygna Labs, based in Miami Beach, N3K acquired the company on 21 February 2019. Alexander Häcker, CEO of the N3K Group, sees the acquisition as the next milestone in the development of both companies.
