Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The solution provides oversight, reports, and logs that are easy to understand.""The scalability is also good. ADManager Plus is being used by seven to eight system administrators right now, and it has been working fine.""Makes it easy to administer your active directory."

More ManageEngine ADManager Plus Pros →

"Instead of deleting accounts, we like the deprovision option so that we can reverse any accidental deletions. It also gives a higher level of quality control in terms of enforcing any number of variables, such as making sure that an account has a description entered before the account can be created. We can backtrack and know the history of it that way.""With the use of the sync service we were able to import information from multiple external systems and populate them within our space and leverage them for downstream systems."

Cons
"I think the cost of this product is a little higher than I would expect.""The bulk email ID creation must be improved. I had to create 50 to 60 IDs manually because when I tried the bulk option, it didn't work. I still had to cross-verify because some fields were empty.""API integrations are not supported for all HR tools."

More ManageEngine ADManager Plus Cons →

"I've had a difficult time getting it to cooperate with Azure in the cloud and, while the support staff are very good and very knowledgeable, what they assist with just on a call doesn't go deep enough to help with a number of issues. The answer that comes back is that we'd have to start an engagement with Professional Services, which is fine but that takes time to schedule and it takes budget.""There are some features that we think should be included in their next release. We think these things would take them to the next level: the ability to completely force or limit any dynamic group processing to specific servers, change-tracking reporting of virtual attributes, and the ability to use files as inputs to automation workloads. These things have also been talked about. Knowing them, they're probably working on them."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The cost of this product is a little higher than I would expect for a tool like this."
  • "The pricing depends on scope and makes sense for use cases with multiple domains."

    Questions from the Community
    Top Answer:The solution provides oversight, reports, and logs that are easy to understand.
    Top Answer:The pricing depends on scope and makes sense for use cases with multiple domains. Given the current economy, it would be beneficial to offer a pricing discount. I rate pricing an eight out of ten.
    Top Answer:API integrations are not supported for all HR tools. For example, Workday is supported but SAP HCM is not. We are in the process of developing a middleware to solve the issue.

    Overview

    In real-time, ensure critical resources in the network like the Domain Controllers are audited, monitored and reported with the entire information on AD objects - Users, Groups, GPO, Computer, OU, DNS, AD Schema and Configuration changes with 200+ detailed event specific GUI reports and email alerts.

    One Identity Active Roles is a highly regarded solution for Active Directory (AD) security and account management. One Identity Active Roles will enhance group, account, and directory management while eradicating the need for manual processes. The end result is a significant increase in the overall speed, efficiency, and security of the organization.

    Using One Identity Active Roles, users can:

    • Easily increase and strengthen native attributes of Active Directory (AD) and Azure AD.

    • Quickly unify and automate group and account management while protecting and securing critical administrative access.

    • Free up valuable resources to concentrate on other IT tasks, fully confident that your user permissions, critical data, and privileged access are safe and secure.

    Managing accounts in AD and Azure AD can be tremendously challenging; continually keeping these important systems safe and secure presents an even greater challenge. Traditional tools can be inefficient, error-prone, and very disjointed. In today’s robust marketplace, organizations are finding it somewhat difficult to keep pace with the constant access changes in a hybrid AD ecosystem. Additionally, there are significant security issues to consider (government compliance, employee status/access changes, and other confidential business requirements). And, of course, there is a requirement to properly manage Active Directory and Azure Active Directory access in addition to managing all the other numerous SaaS and non-Windows applications that organizations use today.

    Users can easily automate all of these tedious, mundane administrative tasks, keeping their systems safe and error-free. Active Roles ensures users can perform their job responsibilities more effectively, more efficiently, and with minimal manual intervention. Active Roles was created with a flexible design, so organizations can easily scale to meet your organizational needs, today, tomorrow, and in the foreseeable future.

    Reviews from Real Users

    A PeerSpot user who is a Network Analyst at a government tells us, “It has eliminated admin tasks that were bogging down our IT department. Before we started using Active Roles, if one of our frontline staff members deleted a user or group, it could take several hours to try to reverse that mistake. Whereas now, the most our frontline staff can do is a deprovision, which just disables everything in the background, but it's still there. We can go in and have it back the way it was two minutes later. Instead of it taking two hours, it only takes two minutes.

    Becky P., Sr Business Analyst at George Washington University, shares, “In addition, with the use of workflows and the scheduled tasks, we were able to automate and centrally manage a number of the processes as well as utilize them to work around other product limitations. Those include, but are not limited to syncing larger groups, which have 50,000 plus members, to Azure AD. We sync up to Azure AD using ARS. If we had not already had ARS in place, it would have been impossible for us to have done so in the time period we did it in. We did it in under six months. ARS probably saves us at least two weeks out of every month. It's reduced our workload by 50 percent, easily.”
