Non-Invasive HelpDesk Delegation Model
ADManager Plus presents a unique delegation model that is both easy-to-use and secure at the same time. With its helpdesk management and delegation functionalities, the administrator can authorize non-administrative users like helpdesk technicians, human resources personnel, and frontline officials to perform certain tasks that do not necessitate an administrator's action. This greatly reduces the work load on the administrator, and also saves on a considerable amount of time and resources. In short, ADManager Plus is every administrator's Swiss Army knife when it comes to delegation tasks.
It may so seem that the helpdesk technician and the human resources are given rights, compromising on the security of the Active Directory. Worry not! ADManager Plus takes care that the administrator does not let go of the reins of the Active Directory, irrespective of the rights delegated to the non-administrative users. Not only that, but also, ADManager Plus assures that the helpdesk officials, like puppets, can perform only the tasks that are delegated to them by the administrator. It makes sure that the ultimate controls over the Active Directory, at all levels, vest only with the administrator. However, what sets ADManager Plus apart from other Active Directory management tools is its ability to delegate rights to helpdesk technicians in a non-invasive manner - a feature that's been catching the eyes of many an administrator.
ADManager Plus Delegation Model:
This non-invasive model of delegation forms an impenetrable moat around the Active Directory - a concept perfected by ADManager Plus to ensure top-class security of the Active Directory. This model takes care not to elevate the rights of the technician in the Active Directory but bridles a helpdesk technician with roles to perform. This also means that ADManager Plus bypasses the Active Directory in effecting the changes made by the technicians.
The salient aspects of ADManager Plus are:
All these features assure that the actual Active Directory remains untouched, thereby ensuring the security.
Audit the Helpdesk's Actions:
With vital rights delegated to the helpdesk and human resources department, it is important to maintain an accurate record of the activities of each delegated role - a requirement adequately filled by a feature called Technician Audit Logs. The Technician Audit Logs provides an administrator with analytical data about the changes effected by technicians to whom the authority has been delegated. Using this, the administrator can track the Active Directory objects and users created, deleted or modified, and the technician who performed the action.
"We evaluated ADManager Plus along with several other Active Directory Management and Reporting software. After using it really made life easy for administrators. It is very understandable and fast to learn, I didn't even read the manual."
