Identity management in a Kiwi landscape

Join Vivin on this webinar, as he discusses best practices for New Zealand firms. On May 26, at 2pm he’ll cover two topics in a compact one hour session: 

1) Managing Hybrid Active Directory environments from a security standpoint. How do you best solve hybrid identity challenges? AD360 is a comprehensive, hybrid IAM and security tool that overcomes the routine challenges sysadmins face:
  • How to simplify user provisioning for on-prem and in the cloud.
  • Which reports and settings can help you manage licenses.
  • How password management can be setup to reduce help desk calls.
  • What is available to help you improve storage allocation and performance.
With AD360, just choose the components you need. Then start addressing IAM challenges across on-premise, cloud and hybrid environments from a single console.

2) Setting real-time alerts for suspicious Windows events. Learn how to set:
  • Analysing a user account lockout to understand the source.
  • Tracking Suspicious Server/PC logon activity.
  • Recovering from service account modifications that lead to application downtime.
  • Tracking inappropriate elevation of rights that take place at a User/Group/OU/Domain level.
  • Leveraging Machine learning to sense vicious deviations in user behavior
ManageEngine’s EventLog Analyzer is a log management tool that offers comprehensive event log monitoring. With EventLog Analyzer, simply add devices that need monitoring.
