Softerra Adaxes is a comprehensive solution for management, administration and monitoring of Active Directory. It enables you to automate and secure user provisioning and de-provisioning in Active Directory environments. With its granularly distributed role-based security, administrative tasks automation, approval-based workflow, and enterprise standards enforcement rules, Softerra Adaxes guarantees high-performance user lifecycle management for your enterprise. The below diagram overviews the work of Softerra Adaxes.
Key Features :
Role-Based Security Administration
Role-based security model is used to organize and efficiently distribute permissions between users. Permissions are combined into separate, easy-adjustable Security Roles that allow users or groups, to which they are assigned, to perform a certain set of tasks. A flexible assignment mechanism makes the distribution of permissions more granular and secure.
Administrative Task Automation
Day-to-day administrative operations become more and more time-consuming as enterprises grow in size. To reduce administrative workload, routine operations can be automated and combined in one task. Additional actions are executed automatically by Business Rules, when a specific operation is performed. The scope of Business Rule efficiency is controlled by flexible conditions and assignments.
Streamlined Provisioning and Enterprise Standards Enforcement
In large and complex networks, creating and modifying Active Directory objects involves repetitive entering of the same information and observing of multiple enterprise standards. In order to avoid such excessive and time-consuming actions and to maintain a unified Active Directory environment compliant with the defined standards, Softerra Adaxes provides Property Patterns. Property Patterns define formatting constraints and auto-generating rules for object properties. With a granular assignment mechanism, different Property Patterns can be made effective for different resources depending on their regional or departmental details.
The execution of some critical operations often requires an approval of responsible persons. Softerra Adaxes allows to define critical operations that are executed only after an approval is granted.
Dynamic Business Units
Softerra Adaxes provides virtual collections used to organize Active Directory objects in an alternative way without breaking the AD structure. Business Unit members are defined by flexible membership rules that allow to include or exclude objects dynamically, adapting to changes in the Active Directory. Business Units can contain objects from different domains or even forests that enable users to manage such objects collectively overcoming the restrictions of domain or organizational structures
Active Directory Reporting
The reporting feature provided by Softerra Adaxes allows to facilitate Active Directory analysis and monitoring. The information represented in an understandable format helps to control Active Directory environment efficiently and to present data necessary for informed company management. A comprehensive list of AD reports provided by Softerra Adaxes allows to receive necessary information in minimal time.
Adaxes can be customized to meet the unique needs and requirements of your company. With the help of Custom Commands, users can perform complex and routine Active Directory management tasks with a single click of a mouse. The Web Interface can be configured to allow users to perform only the operations they need to do their job functions, and nothing else. You can enable users to view only specific objects in Active Directory, customize forms for object creation and editing, disallow Active Directory browsing, customize the search capabilities, and much more. As a result, users obtain a clear, simple and intuitive interface, without unnecessary features that may confuse or distract them. Unexpirienced users may not even know they work with Active Directory and what Active Directory is.
The Service Log allows to monitor all operations performed via Softerra Adaxes. To facilitate browsing and monitoring, logged operations can be filtered to display operations performed by a specific user, performed on a specific object, executed within a specific period of time, etc.
Softerra Adaxes allows automating the creation of Exchange mailboxes for Active Directory Users, enables working with multiple Exchange servers that belong to different Exchange organizations in one administrative environment, provides a web-based interface for Exchange recipient management. Adaxes supports Microsoft Exchange 2003, 2007, and 2010.
Active Directory Management with PowerShell
The Active Directory PowerShell module delivered with Adaxes enables administrators to manage Active Directory from the command line. The module includes a set of PowerShell cmdlets and a PowerShell provider that allows browsing and updating AD with the help of common directory navigation commands, like cd, dir, del, move. The PowerShell module can be used to perform and automate Active Directory management tasks such as modifying group membership, updating AD objects, provisioning new user accounts, searching Active Directory, etc.
Softerra Adaxes allows to install several Adaxes services that share their configuration. This enables Softerra Adaxes to connect users to the nearest available Adaxes service in order to avoid system overburdening, increase the utilization of network segments, and enhance the system liability.
