System auditing varies widely between differing UNIX and Linux systems, most of which lack the tools needed for easy configuration and use. Secure4Audit (previously known as auditGUARD) is a simple and easy-to-use software package for configuring and controlling system auditing.
By providing a mechanism with which system administrators can identify key targets and events and assign priorities, the Secure4Audit filtering option lets you decide exactly what you need to track on your systems, and the alerting function will then notify you when the selected events occur.
