Now Microsoft Office 365 Auditing is Easier with AdminDroid Office 365 Audit Reports.

We are excited to release the auditing feature in AdminDroid Office 365 Reporter. We have added around 200 out-of-the-box auditing reports which cover Azure Active Directory, SharePoint Online, and Exchange Online currently. We introduced two new auditing dashboards which will greatly help the admins to visualize the activities happen inside their Office 365 environment in a clear way.

How AdminDroid offers more value than the native option?

Office 365 Security & Compliance Center provides audit log search option which unifies all of the activities performed in Office 365 applications in one place, but it never gives you the glimpse of the activities happened.

Admin has to perform many exhaustive searches to get into the details of what went on with their Office 365 environment.
  • AdminDroid Office 365 Auditing tool provides the summary view of the auditing events with different dimensions and you can navigate the dimensions just by few clicks.
  • You can get the weekly, monthly and daily activities trend along with the top 10 activities in each Office 365 applications.
  • There is a dedicated dashboard given for monitoring the failed activities.It helps you to analyze the root causes of the failed incidents and fix them as earliest.
  • Every analytics data available in the dashboard can be expanded further to get the broader detail of the statistics.

Manage Your Office 365 Reporting Securely with AdminDroid

We know that every Office 365 admin has concerns towards the security and confidentiality of their reporting data before using any reporting product. Data security is our primary focus while building AdminDroid Office 365 Reporting tool. One of the most important aspects of the tool is, it won’t store your o365 data in the cloud or ask your administrator’s password, unlike other reporting applications.

Your Data is in your control

This product can be installed in your on-premise client /server machine. So it ensures that all of the reporting and analytics information about your Office 365 tenant is stored in the installation machine which is in your control.

No need to provide admin password

We will never ask your admin account password to collect the reporting data. As the product is built using Azure AD consent framework, with a few mouse clicks, you can grant the requested permission to the AdminDroid application on your Office 365 tenant.

Office 365 single sign-on

We threw away the classic login page and secured the application with the Office 365 single sign on. You can just log in with your configured Office 365 account to access this application.

No need of PowerShell

We use  Azure Graph API and Office 365 Reporting web service to fetch the reporting data through encrypted connection. So you don’t need to worry about any PowerShell dependency or tweaking your PowerShell execution policy.

A journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step

Well, we are trying to figure out when we took that single step 🙂

Well, once we wrote a script for a friend of ours, who’s an IT admin. It solved his problem for which he treated us with a sumptuous meal at an expensive restaurant as an expression of gratitude!

That’s when we first found this thrill – the thrill of solving an IT admin’s challenges (and of course, going home with a full tummy 😉 Thus began our journey…

Nah!!! We’re just kidding!

We are AdminDroid, a company by erstwhile IT administrators, who are now IT solution makers.
Now, we are engaged in solving IT administrator’s problems. Our goal is to provide economic, quality IT solutions to IT administrators for complex problems, while providing as much as free tools whenever possible for issues that do not warrant complex IT tools.

We’ve been IT administrators in our lives. We have been in the trenches. So, we know EXACTLY what an IT administrator wants. Take a look at our flagship product – AdminDroid Office 365 Reporter – to understand how well we can cater info that IT staff look for.

We are beginning our journey with this FREE tool.

NOTE: Hey, that part of a satisfied IT admin thanking us with a meal is true though 🙂 but we always had this idea of starting an IT company of our own while we scouted for IT solutions for our own problems 🙂
