What do you like best?

I like this software because it is 100% web, it is also very complete and useful, it allows me to see through its records who was the last person to make repairs to the servers or any computer of my company, thus allowing time to identify faults due to bad configurations in the systems it is short, even if it were necessary to revert, it is done without any problem. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The system is good, but in the implementation and deployment it was complicated if it requires a lot of knowledge and time to carry out a correct implementation, otherwise the security reports do not indicate any activity and come out with errors, also the support takes a long time , which must be improved so that this product is vital in any company. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You will not regret choosing a product like ManageEngine ADAudit Plus, since we can have a visibility of everything that happens in our environment, from servers and end-user computers, creation of standard and custom reports to ensure proper access rights have been assigned.

It allows you to comply with procedures related to information security, and report any incident clearly to any supervisor, I recommend using this tool with its complementary tools from the ManageEngine family, since we can not only have reporting, but also automate certain activities, which makes it better to choose this product. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Thanks to this system, I have been able to maintain a daily control of the technicians who enter the servers or if an unauthorized person had access to a computer in the company, I have also been able to obtain reports that allow me to comply with information security regulations .

What do you like best?

I like this software because it is very complete and useful, it allows me to see through your records who was the last person to make repairs to the servers or any computer of my company, this in order to evaluate the professional level of the technician. the time to repair systems, or if necessary, to revert any harmful change using the database.

With ADaudit plus you can take all your records in your system and review in real time, which user is on your computer and who is manipulating the servers, this with the firm purpose of avoiding sabotage to the system or bad users. The interface of this system is very friendly and easy to use, you can install it and configure it in just minutes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

This system is without a doubt excellent, but sadly I have to say that your technical support team takes a long time to answer. No doubt I report such a situation and good to settle this situation of delay in your response. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

In short this system is one of the best that I have been able to use and that I believe that every company should have in its data since it is a true guardian of all the information that you manage in your equipment. And it will be the first one that will tell you what happened and what was the last movement that generated the failure in the system if necessary. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Thanks to this system I have been able to keep up to date, which person and technician have managed to enter my servers in order to evaluate the performance and dynamism of each technician, this system has also provided my team with excellent and detailed reports to speed up making decisions within the performance of an audit.

What do you like best?

We use ADAudit as a mostly passive tool to log changes made within our AD environment. From GPO changes, to user logons and also modified attributes. We send out a daily report to our Support Desk each day to show failed logins for particular users, which could alert them of an attack vector or more likely someone that hasn't changed their password across all systems. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

When trying to access archive data, it must be pulled from a repository rather than more readily available in the application. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Tracking changes to our AD environment to ensure our security is scoped appropriately. Also use it for random change tracking requests on groups and user logons. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I liked the reporting and easy to use analytics. Most reports are canned and what you want. Setup is easy and you can get it going and reporting pretty fast. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There was a change in the most recent versions that let you only look at the most recent data without loading archived databases. Sometimes the site freezes and needs to be restarted which was kind of annoying. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is an easy solution to implement and gives plenty of reports that you can use mostly every day. It is the first place I go when there is a user or AD issue. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were able to see locked out employees quickly. We were able to report on servers, groups, users, logins, pretty much anything you can think of that has to do with AD and not run any PowerShell commands. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

AD alerting for changes made to AD objects along with a full audit trail of changes made by administrators. Being able to quickly determine lockout issues and create automated processes to resolve known issues in your environment. The ability to hook in with rest of their AD suite of products Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Support is the biggest headache. It is very hard to get them when you need them and they very rarely call back when it works for you schedule to work on an issue. If need to work on issues after-hours it is even more painful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely buy this if you run active directory and want a great way to automate tasks, audit objects in AD and receive instant notification of changes to key objects in AD. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I like how many canned reports are included with the solution. You can find all sorts of information on your Active Directory environment just by digging through the canned reports and playing with the filters. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dislike how difficult it is to upgrade the product. There's this weird Java updater package that you have to run, and 9 times out of 10, the upgrade just doesn't happen. I wish ManageEngine would make the upgrade process simpler. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure that you take a snapshot of the VM running ADAudit Plus before doing an upgrade. It'll save you a lot of headaches later. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We get altering on any failed login attempts to privileged accounts. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Centralized and web access to your Active Directory history. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

This tool and ADManager, i think, have almost the same purpose. I think ADManager would have these features too. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you need to keep history logs of your Active Directory, that's the tool. If you just need to have a centralized access and management of your Active Directory, give a look in ADManager from ManageEngine too. Maybe you'll have more use to it, than with ADAudit.

It provides a great deal of data for a very reasonable price. Works very well and gives us great insight into what changes are occurring on our network. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice if the main dashboard allowed a drilldown to the reports that match. Otherwise its very good. We have very few complaints. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before using this tool we were not able to accurately tell when users were logging into the network and what changes they were making to files. This solved that issue. It also allows us to ensure that administrators are making correct changes and not accessing areas that they shouldn't not be accessing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
