Active Directory Management

Managing Active Directory just got easier. Grant "just enough" authority to reduce risks.
Do too many people have full rights to Active Directory? Is restricting their authority time-consuming and complicated? Are you at risk? NetIQ Directory and Resource Administrator™ easily delegates proper administrative powers in Active Directory without granting unnecessary access!
Then NetIQ Directory and Resource Administrator is what you require to keep track of your the most critical component in your IT environment.
Granular delegation
It's easy to ensure everyone can do their jobs by granting them unlimited access to Active Directory, right? WRONG! If you care about security, compliance, or saving yourself the headaches of repairing directories after well-intentioned administration, then you need fine-grained delegation.
Appropriate views for increased security
Because you can restrict user and administrator views to specific controls, information, and directory objects—you can increase your security and decrease confusion about what users and administrators can actually do.
Centralized, secure logs and reports
Having a tamper-resistant repository of all administrative activity is essential in today's compliance- and regulation-driven world. Your CEO might want to know how many people have administrative rights or an auditor might need to see who performed certain administrative actions and when. With flexible reporting, you can.
Let's face it—your users should be doing some tasks themselves without the assistance of help desk personnel or IT staff. Resetting their passwords or updating their information in Active Directory should be simple. With NetIQ Directory and Resource Administrator™ combined with NetIQ Self Service Password Reset, it is.
Exchange administration
