For organisations that use Windows Servers and Desktops, Active Directory (AD) is one of the most important services used in their infrastructure. IT admins use AD to perform a variety of tasks on a daily basis.

To manage an organisation’s IT infrastructure successfully, IT admins should have complete knowledge of all the different activities taking place in their AD. Identifying who, where and when changes were made gives more granular insight into the changes within an organisation’s infrastructure.




How can IT admins achieve this?

With ManageEngine’s ADAudit Plus, IT admins can now effectively manage all changes made in their Active Directory or Azure AD. ADAudit Plus is a web-based active directory change audit solution. It helps build comprehensive reports on almost every change occurring in Windows Active Directory/ Azure AD.

ADAudit’s Active Directory Auditing includes the following features:

  • Granular visibility of all AD objects such as users, computers, groups, OUs, GPOs, schema, sites – along with their attributes.
  • Gain a detailed insight into user management actions such as creation, deletion, password resets, and permission changes, along with details on who did what, when and from where.
  • Get notifications on permission changes in AD, including domain, OU, group, container and user.
  • Track when users are added or removed from security and distribution groups.
  • Identify all changes made to Group Policy settings including modifications to domain-level policies such as account lockout and password policy, along with the policy’s old and new values.

The above are only some of the features that are available with AD auditing. If you are interested in learning more about ADAudit Plus and the additional features that are offered, contact the ManageEngine NZ team at
