Why Read This
Forrester evaluated leading Active Directory management solution vendors across 82 criteria and found that Quest Software and NetPro lead in Active Directory management. Quest provides the most complete set of capabilities across its product suite. NetPro offers several best-in-class products and a unique unified architecture. Following its acquisition by Attachmate, NetIQ, the one-time market leader in Active Directory management, has begun to gain back ground it had lost and reemerges as a Strong Performer. Active Directory management products encompass a broad space with many features and functions, and the evaluated vendors have strengths in different areas. Firms must prioritize and match their needs to these strengths in order to select the right solution for their organization.
