ADManager Plus has good reporting features, connects to all parts of AD, and other information systems easily. Its ability to allow the other members of the IT team to perform any AD management or reporting operation, securely and easily, from the console is yet another advantage of the product.

MAP, a public listed company, started in 1995, is a leading lifestyle retailer in Indonesia with over 2200 stores spread across the country. It has a diverse portfolio including sports, fashion, food and beverage, and lifestyle products, from global brands such as Starbucks, Reebok, Marks & Spencer, SOGO, SEIBU, Oshkosh B’Gosh, and Zara. MAP is also a leading distributor for sports, kids, and lifestyle brands. Started in 1995, it has over 26,000 employees, and has grown rapidly to become one of Fortune Indonesia’s Most Admired Companies for two consecutive years.

MAP’s Active Directory (AD) administrators were finding it quite challenging to continuously identify, monitor, and clean up the dormant accounts, to eliminate potential security threats. They also wanted an easier and efficient way to review the rights of privileged users and groups, and group memberships regularly, as they wanted to avoid granting excess privilege, and also satisfy the compliance regulations. They also wanted to achieve all these from a centralized location.

The ideal solution for all the challenges that MAP’s administrators were facing is a tool that would allow them to manage their entire AD infrastructure from a single console. It should also allow them to view all the permissions and group membership of privileged users and groups in detail easily and instantly whenever they wanted to. Further, the solution should also enable them to identify the dormant AD accounts and clean them up quickly, and automatically.

ADManager Plus, the unified Active Directory, Office 365 and Exchange management and reporting software from ManageEngine is the ideal solution for MAP.

ADManager Plus, with its centralized, and intuitive web-based UI allowed AD administrators and technicians to handle a variety of complex tasks like bulk management of user accounts, and cleaning up stale accounts effortlessly. Its built-in reports library provided them exhaustive reports on AD, NTFS permissions, Exchange, Office 365, and G Suite, and also provide reports essential to satisfy IT compliance audits, instantly. It also helped them delegate role based access to help desk technicians for AD management and reporting operations, and even automate critical routines such as stale accounts cleanup.

"ADManager Plus has good reporting features, connects to all parts of AD, and other information systems easily. Its ability to allow the other members of the IT team to perform any AD management or reporting operation, securely and easily, from the console is yet another advantage of the product.", explained Head of IT, PT. Mitra Adiperkasa Tbk (MAP).

With ADManager Plus in hand, MAP could actively enforce all the essentials of an effective user identity and access management system, and also ensure security, without actually burning a hole in their pocket. They were also pleased that all their AD management issues like multiple users being able to manage AD, resource allocation, and management of policy settings were resolved instantaneously with ADManager Plus.
