Windows Audit Policy Monitor Template

The Windows Audit Policy Monitor Template enables users to capture the Windows Audit Policy of any target host then using the captured policy, apply the Windows Audit Policy to any machine as well as continually verify the Windows Audit Policy has not been modified. This template is typically used to enable network administrators to apply Windows Audit Policies to off-domain hosts, hosts that reside in a DMZ as well as verify all hosts that reside in a domain have the correct Windows Audit Policy applied.
