Active Directory Management Made Simple

Make ITSM better with AD360

Integrated Identity and Access Management (IAM)

This is an integrated solution for Identity and Access Management (IAM) needs in Windows environment.

This web-based software portfolio unifies all the functionalities needed for an enterprise: from user provisioning, self-service to risk governance and offers it with a simple, easy to use interface. This is the right solution for bridging the gap between technology and the complex business needs.

AD360 Identity and Access Management Solution

ADManagement Solution

An integrated solution that addresses many pressing concerns of IT administrators of Windows environment including Identity and Access Management, Active Directory Change Auditing and Compliance Demands, Password Reset/Account Lockout management, and Exchange Auditing through a simple, easy to use interface. Most of the time consuming tasks in Active Directory can be automated through AD360.

Consists of four components, each of them equipped to deal with various routine problems and management challenges pertaining to Active Directory and Exchange. The four components are:

  • AD Management
  • AD Auditing
  • Password Self-Service
  • Exchange Auditing

The above four components are integrated to provide a complete solution to all your Windows Infrastructure management challenges. Let's take a brief look at each of these components:

Active Directory Management

The AD Management component helps you to successfully automate crucial Identity and Access Management (IAM) tasks like user account provisioning / de-Provisioning with the help of a library of preconfigured access controls called 'User Management Templates'. This component also provides "On-the-fly AD Management" that lets you perform point-in-time management actions and "Noninvasive AD Delegation" with which you can turn even technically naive into Super Admin.

  • Instant Provisioning - Create a bulk of User Account or other AD Objects at the press of a button.
  • Active Directory Clean-Up - Delete/Disable/move accounts.
  • Automation of everyday tasks - Automate routine tasks such as scouting for inactive user accounts & disabling them, moving home folders, and so on.

Active Directory Auditing

AD Auditing, the auditing and compliance reports component helps you scrutinize every change in Active Directory, while ensuring the change is in conformance with the standards set by IT regulatory acts such as SOX, HIPAA and more. With AD Auditing, you can get prepackaged reports on a myriad of crucial activities such as user logon actions and changes to GPO / OU / groups / computer / domain policies. Using filters and rules, you can create your own event fetchers for collecting event data that can be used for crisis detection and prevention. Some of the highlights of this component are:

  • Generate Reports Based on Your Own Rules - generate reports down to granular details by user configurable rules
  • Archiving of Audit Data - automatically archive all audit data collected from the event log which can be used in forensic analysis and regulatory requirements
  • Alerts and E-mail Notifications - get instant alerts on desired/undesired audit events based on configured report profiles

Password Self-Service

The Password Self-Service component eliminates the biggest source of helpdesk calls - forgotten passwords and account lockouts.

With Password Self-Service users can reset their passwords and unlock their accounts through a simple web browser or right from the Winlogon (Ctrl+Alt+Del) screen of their machines. The identities of the users are verified using a highly secure two factor authentication process: Security Q&A authentication and SMS/E-mail based secret code authentication. It also lets you automatically synchronize the password/account changes with other systems like AS400 and UX servers. Some of the key features of this component are:

  • Password/Account Expiry Notification - send phased notifications about their impending password expiry to end-users at specific intervals.
  • Employee Self-Update and Search - helps you maintain up-to-date contact information of employees and let them search the same of their colleagues.
  • Change Password - allows users to change their soon-to-expire passwords from anywhere, anytime.

Exchange Auditing

The Exchange Auditing component provides all the necessary analytics and information that an administrator would need to optimize an organization's Exchange infrastructure. With the help of over 80+ pre-packaged reports, you can track incoming and outgoing emails, keep tabs on mailbox traffic and server traffic, and monitor vital statistics of Public Folders and Distribution Lists.

  • Drilling Down of Data - funnel out the data you will precisely need with the help of filters.
  • Data Portability - download the reports in xls, csv, pdf and html formats for further activity and trend analysis.
  • OWA Reports - monitor activities on OWA based on users, browser and even Client IP address.

By integrating all these four components, you can put an end to all your Active Directory troubles.

A group of solutions that can solve your organization's Identity and Access Management needs that arise in an organization using Windows.

This suite of solutions has been loaded with features to address various section of IAM, including Active Directory Organization Management, Password & IT Self-Service, Active Directory Auditing & IT Compliance Reports, and Exchange Reporting and Auditing.

Active Directory Organization Management

User Provisioning and De-Provisioning

Automate and streamline critical IAM tasks such as user account provisioning, management, and de-provisioning to efficiently meet business needs. AD360 helps you to maintain a secure environment and be more flexible at the same time by creating a library of preconfigured access controls called 'User Management Templates', which can be assigned to users as their position warrants.

Take control with AD Workflow

Keep track of all requests for IAM operations using a multi-level approval process, and automatically fulfill the necessary requests with established workflows.

Reduce the gap between AD & business processes

Certain AD tasks appear better off if done by HR/Business Managers, but security always is a deterrent in such delegation. With ManageEngine's smart AD Delegation templates/ roles, delegate tasks that concern a specific department without even elevating the concerned users' rights in AD. Given the granularity of delegation and workflow, you can even micromanage the delegated AD tasks, whilst reducing workload and improving precision of those tasks, as they are carried out by those closest to business processes.

AD Automation

Automate a wide variety of tasks including bulk user creation and modification, group modification, deleting inactive users, moving home folders, and so on with the help of AD automation rules and policies.

AD Auditing & IT Compliance

Keep track of critical information

Keep track of myriad of critical information such as user logon/logoff time, changes in Active Directory made by users, creation/modification/deletion of files from an unauthorized/authorized access, logon duration/history of Windows Servers, etc.

Ensure IT Compliance

Automate the extraction and delivery of vital information to your e-mail id without the need for manual extraction. With this information you can ensure that all the compliance requirements including SOX, HIPAA, etc., are met and every component in your network works smoothly.

Automatic archiving

Automatically archive reports and ensure that the audit data remains safe and unaltered. Use this archived data to plan on resource capacity by studying past resource utilization patterns, and isolate suspicious users by following their audit trail.

Easy to grasp reports

The compliance reports are presented neatly in a graphical display, from which you can easily grasp all critical information and take preventive actions.

Password & IT Self-Service:

Self-Service password reset/account unlock

Reduce helpdesk costs and save frustrations for the employees by allowing end-users to reset their own passwords and unlock their own accounts without having to call the helpdesk personnel. Users can reset passwords/unlock accounts from anywhere, anytime via a simple web browser or right from the Winlogon (Ctrl+Alt+Del) screen of their machines.

SMS/E-mail based two-factor authentication for ID verification

IT Administrators need no longer fret over security, while giving the power of self-service to end users. AD360 employs its own secure two-factor authentication process - Security Q&A authentication and SMS/E-mail based secret code authentication - to verify user identity. Communication between the browser and Password Self-Service server can be secured using SSL.

Send automatic password/account expiry notification

In this age of on-the-fly users, send automatic phased password/account expiry notifications that remind them to change their passwords before they expire. Users can view the password complexity rules on the Change Password screen, which will help them to choose a password that complies with the domain policy requirements.

Employee AD Self-Update and Search

Allow users to self-update their contact information, photos, and profile details in Active Directory and search for the same of their colleagues.

Password Synchronizer

Synchronize users' Windows Active Directory password/account changes made using Password Self-Service of AD360 with other platform systems like AS400 and UX servers.

Exchange Reporting & Auditing

Keep track of Mailbox Size, Content, Traffic, etc.

The formidable task of keeping tabs on Mailbox size, content, permissions, traffic, etc., has been made very simple in AD360. Get comprehensive reports on all the critical factors of the Exchange Mailboxes.

Distribution Lists and Public Folders Report

The Distribution lists report and Public Folders content report helps you to make sure that the common medium for sharing information in Exchange is not misused by malicious users.

OWA access report

Track accesses to Exchange made through Outlook Web App, and learn about the users, browser, and even the machine's IP address used in the process.

Extract and export information using built-in filters

Use the built-in filters to extract information that you precisely need, and export all the data available from these reports in xls, csv, pdf and html formats for further activity and trend analysis.
