ManageEngine also has added Microsoft Office 365 reporting and a BitLocker recovery password and key package retriever to ADManager Plus.
The company said the new features are designed to help businesses streamline AD-related tasks.
“We’re enhancing ADManager Plus to meet the demands of managing both on-premise and cloud technologies,” Manikandan Thangaraj, ManageEngine’s director of product management, said in a prepared statement. “Now, we’ve added Google Apps account provisioning. By extending ADManager Plus to include cloud identity management, we help non-technical staff carry out tasks such as user provisioning without knowing the nitty-gritty details of the cloud or on-premise technologies being provisioned.”
AD administrators can use ADManager Plus to:
Create AD and Google Apps accounts simultaneously
Manage Office 365 distribution groups, licenses and users
Retrieve BitLocker recovery information
Restore access to BitLocker-protected drives
“Any user who has a cloud deployment like Google Apps or Office 365 needs a third-party solution like ADManager Plus to ensure a unified and standardized provisioning, which could also be safely handed over to non-IT staff who has the process knowledge and ideally does the groundwork,” a ManageEngine spokesperson told MSPmentor.
ADManager Plus pricing starts at $495, and a free 30-day trial can be downloaded here.
What is ADManager Plus?

The solution’s features include:
Organizational unit-based administration
Single pane of glass for AD management and reporting
ManageEngine also noted ADManager Plus features mobile AD apps that enable users to complete tasks on the go.
