Comparison solicited: ADManager Plus versus Active Administrator

  • Document Scope: Apart from ADManager Plus and Active Administrator, the comparison had to include a third product for reasons provided below.
  • Client requested comparison (ADManager Plus vs ScriptLogic Active Administrator) is not possible because these products are as different from each other ¯ in purpose and functionality ¯ as chalk and cheese.
  • While the former is an Active Directory management, delegation and reporting software, the latter is an unconventional assortment of diverse functionalities; neither it falls in the "Active Directory management" category nor is it a "Complete Active Directory Solution".
  • Active Administrator is not entirely about Active Directory administration as its name would suggest. Rather, it is more of an Active Directory auditing and recovery management software, with AD Delegation and GPO management as added benefits. Therefore, a similar product from ManageEngine solution portfolio ¯ ADAudit Plus has been included in this comparison.

ManageEngine ADManager Plus Vs ScriptLogic Active Administrator

ManageEngine ADManager Plus and ADAudit Plus: ADManager Plus greatly reduces administrator's burden by automating repetitive and mundane tasks associated with Active Directory Management, Reporting and Delegation. ADAudit Plus is an Active Directory auditing software which addresses the audit and compliance needs of administrators comprehensively. ManageEngine products are completely web-based which makes installation a breeze and there is no learning curve required to use the software. ADManager Plus is priced at $495(per annum) for 1Domain + 2helpdesk technicians + Unlimited AD Objects ADAudit Plus is priced at $495(per annum) for 2 Domain Controllers + Unlimited AD Objects.
ScriptLogic Active Administrator Active Administrator primarily focuses on GPO Management, AD Auditing and disaster recovery. The management capability of Active Administrator is very limited as it does not support any kind of bulk management of AD objects. Since the product is not web- based, usability is definitely a concern for amateur users; a separate console has to be installed in every client machine. Pricing is a woe for administrators as the licensing is based on the number of active user accounts in the active directory.

Proof of ManageEngine Products's Efficiency

Bulk Management of AD Objects: ADManager Plus greatly reduces administrative burden by facilitating creation and attribute-modification of bulk user accounts in a "single click".
Bridging Management and Reporting: ADManager Plus integrates management and reporting with the help of its intuitive user interface that even Active Directory cleanup can be performed in a few clicks.
Monitor every second of user activity: As a proof of its quick-fire adaptability, ADAudit Plus starts monitoring the "domain critical security groups" no sooner than installed.
