Active Administrator is an enterprise Active Directory management and auditing solution that takes over where Active Directory left off.
If Active Directory security is one of your company's concerns, then ActiveAdministrator is the right tool for you. Its easy-to-use interface gives you single seat enterprise control over your entire Active Directory security and Group Policies.
While Microsoft native tools give you single object administration to both security and group policies, those tools require endless nested buttons and dialog boxes just to accomplish simple tasks. They also cause you to focus on the individual task at hand, without a view of the larger picture.
Active Administrator simplifies Active Directory Security Administration
Active Administrator simplifies Active Directory permissions by using a flexible interface, allowing easy navigation of your Active Directory in one pane, with instant access to all permissions in another. Filtering of inherited or assigned permissions also narrow down the focus of your management.
Active Administrator: Active Templates
Active Administrator exclusively uses Active Templates. Active Templates make assigning permissions easier by taking the guesswork out of what permissions need to go where. Each template defines the specific permissions required to accomplish ActiveDirectory tasks. You can even create your own. To use a template, simply choose the object to be managed, select the template role, such as "Users - Create User Accounts," and the user or group to be assigned the permissions. It's that simple
Active Directory Group Policy Management with Active Administrator
Like ActiveDirectory permissions, Active Administrator makes group policy administration simple using the same easy interface. Plan group policy settings using Resultant Set of Policies calculations to determine the net effect policies have without actually having to implement them.
Active Directory Group Policy Backups
Unlike the native backup of group policies via the System State, AA can backup and restore group policies, allowing faster response to corruption or changes that have a negative impact on users.
Active Directory Auditing Active Administrator centrally audits the Security event logs on your domain controllers. By auditing the changes made to ActiveDirectory permissions or group policies, you can find out what changes were made in Active Directory and who made changes without having to filter through potentially thousands of event log entries. Active Administrator can even email you when changes are made.
