What are the best auditing software packages and techniques use for system auditing. Specifically...

I am a Network Engineer/Admin for a company, and my boss needs a way to audit changes such as adding, deleting, exchange accounts, ... adding,deleting user accounts, etc for Active Directory. It needs to be monitored in a way so that I or another sysadmin cannot malicously make a change without a 3rd party knowing about it. It needs to work in conjuction with Windows auditing or in addition to it.

thank you.
