Managing Active Directory efficiently and quickly is critical for organizations. Not doing so will enable incorrect data often leading to security threats. When correctly assigning groups, policies and using best practices, the network management becomes easy and more secure. It allows you to access data when needed with the comfort of knowing the data is accurate.
Accurately managing Active Directory will also reduce the security concerns once an employee leaves or is assigned a new role. When making immediate changes or scheduled changes upon termination or profile updates provide the administrator the confidence needed that access to systems, company software, and other internal information are secure.
For example, if you get a request to manage devices within an organization, such as computers or laptops, a well-managed Active Directory allows you to access or update the information for each device without the need to manually audit.
There are multiple articles written about best practices for managing Active Directory. We believe the way to manage Active Directory effectively is to make managing Active Directory easy. A good software solution will do this for an organization.
