ManageEngine launches IAM solution for Windows
AD360 combines AD management, auditing, self-service, exchange reporting
Real-time IT management company ManageEngine this week launched AD360, an integrated solution for identity and access management (IAM) in organisations running on Windows-based infrastructure.
From everyday user management to keeping user activity compliant with IT regulatory laws, AD360 is designed to holistically address “all aspects of IAM for SMBs and enterprise organisations that use Windows Active Directory”, according to ManageEngine.
In Windows environments, IAM means more than provisioning users. End users themselves must also be able to perform self-service tasks, relieving the IT help desk of routine duties.
Similarly, the increasing demands of IT regulations are driving IT organisations to generate a growing number of reports to demonstrate compliance. While discrete, individual products can meet these demands on a point-by-point basis, they complicate IAM efforts with multiple management consoles, product configurations and sign on credentials.
“Without the right tools in hand, accomplishing the IAM goals in a Windows organisation becomes a wild goose chase for the IT administrator,” said Manikandan Thangaraj, director of product management at ManageEngine.
“AD360 puts the right tools in a single product, creating a unified console that offers an end-to-end solution to their Active Directory IAM needs.”
