Netwrix Helps the California Highway Patrol (CHP) "Protect and Serve" Its IT Infrastructure

One of the Largest Police Forces in the U.S. Relies on Netwrix Auditor to Deliver Centralized, Affordable IT Change Auditing

IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/14 -- Netwrix Corporation, the #1 provider of change and configuration auditing software, today announced that the California Highway Patrol (CHP) has streamlined its compliance with state and federal regulations by using Netwrix Auditor.

With an employee count of over 11,000 and over 100 patrol office locations, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) is one of the largest law enforcement forces today. Like many large organizations, the CHP's IT department is comprised of multiple administrators tasked with managing numerous systems. Changes to these systems are made by administrators every day and tracking those changes for compliance and system performance reasons can be a complex challenge.

To solve its change management issues, the CHP IT team was using a solution that charged them on a per-component basis with little or no noticeable return. With a growing number of systems that required auditing, the CHP began to seek a new solution that would efficiently manage their system changes for a single-solution price.

"We needed to know what changes were being made within our IT infrastructure, as well as have an ability to roll back unwanted changes," said Homer Black, Technical Services Group Supervisor, CHP. "Because we needed to have visibility into changes on a wide range of systems, we proactively sought out a cost-effective and powerful solution to replace our existing solution we had in house."

They found their answer with Netwrix Auditor. "The number of systems supported and features within Netwrix Auditor were impressive," said Homer Black, Technical Services Group Supervisor, CHP. "Factoring in the reasonable pricing, selecting Netwrix Auditor was a no-brainer for us."

Since deploying Netwrix Auditor, CHP's IT department is able to meet their auditing requirements by automatically tracking modifications made to their Active Directory, Exchange Servers, Windows Servers, SQL Servers and File Servers. CHP is also now able to take action quickly to revert any changes that cause problems, saving countless hours and management headaches.
