“RecoveryManager Plus is an excellent product. It has given us peace of mind that we can quickly recover should something happen to our AD”
- Fabio Freire, Director of Infrastructure.
A disaster or corruption of Active Directory (AD) data can stop any business in its tracks. The ability to quickly recover lost AD data is critical to maintaining stability. Sandler O’Neill and Partners knew they weren’t immune to such disasters and were fully aware that they needed a comprehensive AD backup and recovery tool to remedy any AD issues.
Sandler O’Neill and Partners found themselves looking at various prominent AD backup and recovery solutions. Their main requirements were that the solution must have an enriched feature set and be easy to deploy
Sandler O’Neill and partners identified four major players in AD backup and recovery: ManageEngine RecoveryManager Plus, Dell Recovery Manager, Netwrix Auditor for Active Directory, and Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory.
“Your competition was Dell Recovery Manager, Netwrix Auditor for Active Directory, and Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Active Directory. Dell and Netwrix were non-starters, and Veeam, although a very competent product, was significantly more expensive for our use case”
- Fabio Freire, director of infrastructure
ManageEngine RecoveryManager Plus, ticking all the boxes in terms of feature set and pricing requirements, ended up being their final choice.
“The main factors influencing our decision were the feature set, pricing, and previous relationship with ManageEngine (we own ADManager Plus, ADAudit Plus, PasswordManager Pro, and ServiceDesk Plus)”
“Deployment was smooth. Although I did encounter an issue [with deployment], your technical support was quick and effective. ”
Sandler O'Neill and Partners have not faced any large-scale AD disaster to date, but deploying ManageEngine RecoveryManager Plus has allowed them to rest easy knowing they have all their bases covered.
