rDirectory, Namescape’s unique identity information management platform for Active Directory and AD LDS (ADAM), allows you to create custom, web-based delegation, provisioning and search solutions and includes critical features such as secure role based access, built-in audit logging and enforced data integrity validation. Additional rDirectory features include automated email notification, self-service account management, and when coupled with Namescape myPassword, complete user identity and password profile validation.
The main purpose of Active Directory is to provide central authentication and authorization services. Active Directory has native tools for basic administration, but, lack enterprise-class management capabilities that give administrators the ability to view, audit and report on the ever-changing state of their Active Directory infrastructure.
Active Administrator is an Active Directory management and auditing solution that takes over where the management tools supplied with Windows leave off. Active Administrator, the Active Directory solution from ScriptLogic provides administrators the ability to establish, view and enforce delegated security throughout Active Directory management, perform Group Policy management including Group Policy reporting and Resultant Set of Policies (RSoP) as well as auditing and reporting of changes within Active Directory.
When Active Directory has been in use for a while you will have a growing problem with old user and computer accounts that do not correspond to real physical users or computers anymore. With Active Directory Janitor you can search the entire network to identify these accounts. You can then decide, from a number of criteria, which ones that are outdated and finally delete, disable or move them.
Quest ActiveRoles Server can help you manage, automatically provision, re-provision and, more importantly, de-provision users quickly, efficiently and securely in Active Directory, AD LDS (formerly ADAM) and beyond. Quest ActiveRoles Server provides strictly enforced role-based security, automated group management, change approval and easy-to-use Web interfaces for self service to achieve practical user and group lifecycle management for the Windows enterprise.
