Active Administrator for Financial Institutions

Financial institutions, including banking, financial services and insurance companies, have complex IT environments with distributed networks connecting multiple locations. In most cases, Microsoft® Active Directory® (AD) is at the heart of the environment, authenticating users, determining which resources they can access, and controlling what they can do with those resources.

Dell™ Active Administrator fills the management gaps native tools leave behind so your financial organization can more easily meet regulatory requirements, tighten security and maintain business continuity. From a single console, you can address all the key areas of Active Directory administration, including:

• Security & delegation

• Auditing

• Alerting

• Backup & recovery

• Group Policy

• Health and performance

• Replication and configuration
