AdventNet Enhances Its Active Directory Solution ADManager Plus to Increase Administrative Efficiency With Role Delegation to Helpdesk Technicians

PLEASANTON, CA--(Marketwire - January 22, 2008) - AdventNet Inc., a leading provider of enterprise Management Solutions, announced that its ManageEngine ADManager Plus helps delegate specific tasks to Helpdesk technicians on their Active Directory and perform granular management actions, limiting them to an Organizational Unit or the entire domain.

Delegation of authority is a definite cost saver to any organization, which reduces administrator's burden drastically. With the Help Desk Delegation feature, ManageEngine ADManager Plus enhances it further by providing an administrator the facility to group permissions into specific roles, using a web-based user interface. The highlight of the web-based console is its ease-of-use wherein any helpdesk technician with little knowledge of Active Directory can perform delegated roles. The administrator too will have complete information and control on the roles delegated, from the admin console.

ManageEngine ADManager Plus is an enterprise ready windows Active Directory Management and Reporting Solution, which facilitates easy delegation of management tasks to help desk technicians. Human resource staff can create users in Active Directory by a bulk import from a CSV file and templates. Selected users in the particular domain are delegated with roles for managing tasks like reset passwords, unlock accounts, and disable accounts. In addition, the administrators can move single or bulk Active Directory users from one OU to the other, and also assign roles to the technicians to generate Active Directory reports specific to an OU.

"I have always found Active Directory to be a very back-room and technical product only suited to network/security administration, whereas ADManager Plus puts a very friendly and powerful interface over the top of that and I've been very pleased with the functionality," says our satisfied customer Greg Nockolds, Data Architect, IPPSA - Information Planning, Policy, Standards & Applications, Department for Child Protection.

"Role delegation in Active Directory has always been a challenge for administrators what with the option of setting thousands of permissions," says product manager Manikandan Thangaraj. "ADManagerPlus simplifies this function to a large extent and makes their life easy," he added.
