ManageEngine ADManager Plus Vs ExGen LDAP Manager

ManageEngine ADManager Plus is a web-based Active Directory management and reporting solution that also offers end-to-end management and reporting for other platforms such as Microsoft Exchange, Office 365, G Suite apps and Skype for Business server.

The specifications of ADManager Plus and SAM are quite distinct. Their features coincide only on fewer instances, and therefore it becomes difficult to make a levelled comparison between the two.

ADManager Plus also helps you

  • Manage NTFS and share permissions
  • Perform on-the-fly management tasks from 150+ prepackaged AD reports
  • Securely delegate technicians
  • Automate important AD routines and
  • Use an approval mechanism to keep a tab on all the executed actions.

ExGen Networks LDAP Manager is an identity management tool that helps perform user creation, modification and deletion, access right modification, enable/disable of user accounts, password resets and more across platforms like Active Directory, Office 365, G Suite apps, Salesforce cloud and more.

While LDAP Manager primarily focuses on user life cycle management, ADManager Plus provides management and reporting capabilities for other AD objects such as contacts, computers, groups, OUs and more. Furthermore, ADManager Plus also provides additional capabilities like AD reporting, delegation and workflow which is not supported by LDAP Manager.

The following table gives a detailed feature-wise comparison between ADManager Plus and LDAP Manager that will help you take an informed decision as to which product best suits your needs:

Conclusion

ADManager Plus and LDAP Manager both support user management across multiple platforms. While user management is the only capability of LDAP Manager, ADManager Plus provides management of other AD objects, reporting, automation and many other important capabilities apart from user management. Using LDAP Manager might pose an overhead of investing funds, time and effort in additional tools and plugins for accomplishing all your IAM tasks. Hence, if you're looking for a cost-effective, one stop solution for efficient identity and access management, ADManager Plus is the best choice.
