ManageEngine, the enterprise IT management division of Zoho Corporation, is pleased to announce that AD360 is the first of two solutions – nominated to compete in the 2023 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program.
ManageEngine’s AD360 is an integrated identity and access management (IAM) solution that assists enterprises to manage and secure user identities, facilitate identity governance, and ensure compliance.
AD360 helps provide in-depth access management for Microsoft Active Directory and other target systems like Office 365 and G Suite, and offers a considerable edge over native tools.

Some of AD360’s key capabilities are authentication, auditing, user behavior analytics (UBA), multi-factor authentication (MFA), and single sign-on (SSO). This enables administrators to monitor and manage their enterprise’s on-premises, cloud, and hybrid environments from a single console.
AD360 provides contextual multi-factor authentication methods to extend an additional layer of security and curb identity-related attacks.
A wide range of authentication methods, including SMS verification, biometric verification, Google authenticator, and RADIUS are supported. Besides MFA, AD360 supports single sign-on (SSO) across SAML based applications.
Risk-based adaptive authentication is performed using several factors such as user location, IP address, time of previous logon, and device footprint. This is crucial for detecting and removing excessive user privileges, monitoring privileged accounts, and detecting separation of duty (SOD) violations.
Identity analytics and reporting:
AD360 performs risk-based adaptive authentication using identity analytics tools that exploit big data, machine learning (ML), and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to ensure maximum accuracy and mitigate identity-related risks.
Risk-based adaptive authentication is performed using several factors such as user location, IP address, time of previous logon, and device footprint to detect and remove excessive user privileges, monitor privileged accounts, and to detect separation of duty (SOD) violations.
Compliance and audit performance:
AD360 provides administrators with real-time audit reports and alerts on critical changes made to Active Directory and Azure Active Directory environments.
Besides providing audit reports for privileged user activity and insider threat detection, AD360 helps ensure regulatory compliance by allowing administrators to monitor and analyze logon activities, lockouts, and password changes.
It also provides out-of-box reports for IT regulatory mandates such as GDPR, SOX, PCI, HIPAA, FISMA, and GLBA, helping streamline compliance management and prevent regulatory risks.
Implement Zero Trust:
AD360 helps enterprises implement a Zero Trust architecture by streamlining identity lifecycle management, deploying adaptive authentication, enforcing least privileged access, and continuously monitoring target environments to provide detailed audit reports.
The tool helps eliminate human errors and redundancies by automating routine IAM tasks such as user provisioning, modification, and de-provisioning. AD360 helps enforce the least privileged access to detect and prevent privilege abuse.
It also facilitates privileged user monitoring by continuously monitoring and auditing privileged user activity.
By providing modular licensing and varied deployment options, AD360 enables enterprises to deploy a Zero Trust architecture that caters to their specific IAM requirements.

Zero Trust is a security approach based on the principle of “never trust, always verify.” Learn more, courtesy of ManageEngine IAM and SIEM, and YouTube.)
Actionable reporting and ML-powered UBA:
AD360 employs user-behavior analytics powered by machine learning (ML) algorithms to detect anomalies in user behavior and provide intelligent threat alerts. This allows enterprises to gain advanced security insights with precision while preventing false alarms.
Administrators can receive instant alerts on unusual login activity, privilege escalation, and other anomalous behavior. This also provides a considerable edge over traditional tools, which often raise false alarms and fail to detect abnormalities with precision.
AD360 facilitates hybrid identity and access management, with cloud-based Zero Trust network access at its core. This allows enterprises to centrally manage their on-premise and cloud identities and govern access privileges to corporate resources.
Providing multi-factor and adaptive authentication methods helps extend an additional layer of security and curb identity-related attacks. Many authentication methods including SMS verification, biometric verification, Google authenticator, and RADIUS are supported.
Besides MFA, AD360 supports single sign-on (SSO) across SAML based applications. It also provides risk-based adaptive authentication, which uses machine learning (ML) to mitigate access-related risks.
(With organizations shifting towards a remote working culture, traditional security perimeters are extended to include new, undefined perimeters. There is chaos across workplaces, specifically in the IT teams, to securely provision users and manage authentication and access across a scattered application landscape. ManageEngine has put together this webinar to make it easier for you to get on top of the IAM process without leaving any security gaps that unsavory actors might exploit.

AD360’s core capabilities include automated user lifecycle and entitlement management, adaptive authentication, risk assessment, and threat intelligence for enhanced identity governance.
This helps organizations efficiently manage identities across target systems, mitigate risk using automation, and optimize administration.
AD360 helps admins stay one step ahead of the constantly changing threat landscape and thwart attacks by providing critical capabilities like score-based risk assessment, threat corroboration, anomaly detection powered by machine learning, and more.
AD360 also facilitates hybrid identity and access management, with cloud-based Zero Trust network access at its core. This allows enterprises to centrally manage their on-premise and cloud identities and govern access privileges to corporate resources.
AD360 helps enterprises adapt to the evolving security landscape and caters to their identity governance and administration (IGA) requirements while helping them maintain their security posture and thwart attacks.
Real-time auditing and built-in compliance reports enable enterprises to conform to IT regulatory mandates. Additionally, AD360 offers modular licensing and varied deployment options, allowing enterprises to build their IGA system from a wide variety of components.
Established and emerging enterprises-including 9 of every 10 Fortune 100 organizations-rely on ManageEngine’s real-time IT management tools to ensure optimal performance of their IT infrastructure, including networks, servers, applications, endpoints, and more.
ManageEngine has offices worldwide, including the United States, the United Arab Emirates, the Netherlands, India, Colombia, Mexico, Brazil, Singapore, Japan, China, and Australia, and 200+ global partners to help organizations tightly align their business and IT.
