In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:
1. Active Directory Forest Recovery (ADFR) is the only 100% fully-automated AD Disaster Recovery solution and can recover an entire forest in any disaster scenario. In a competitive comparison, competitive products couldn't perform a complete restore in a scenario where the entire forest had been wiped out and there were no DCs from the original forest. ADFR can successfully restore from “nothing” using machines with Semperis agents installed, the same IP address as the original DCs and an OS patched similarly to the original DC.
2. Competitive auditors track changes while Active Directory State Manager (ADSM) uses “state comparison” methodology, plus change-tracking, to ensure data integrity and capture all events in AD. ADSM uses the native replication mechanism the DCs use to poll changes made to AD from the last audited state. This information is correlated with security events collected on each DC to match the change in AD state to the change recorded from the server security log data.
3. Each solution within the platform offers unique business and technical advantages:
- ADFR is a fully-automated, non-intrusive solution which requires zero manual maintenance and enables organizations to minimize downtime and lost revenue. Using ADFR, recovering an entire AD forest is as simple as three mouse clicks.
- ADSM helps organizations maintain compliance and detect suspicious activ ity through real-time insight into changes and events that happen in AD. ADSM allows for granular recovery of objects and attributes and also features point-in-time recovery, so organizations can quickly revert AD to a previous state when necessary (for example if you need to undo a mass security group change that has wreaked havoc on your applications).
Active Directory is one of the most critical components of the data center infrastructure and downtime puts organizations at risk, leading to lost access to line of business applications, lost revenue and, in some cases, a complete organizational shutdown. Semperis is an enterprise identity protection company that enables organizations to quickly recover from devastating changes and disasters that compromise Active Directory, on-premises and on cloud. Semperis’ Directory Services Protection Platform™ provides enterprises with the capabilities to automatically restore an entire Active Directory forest, quickly recover thousands of objects or a single crucial attribute, and instantly revert to a previous Active Directory state. The platform includes:
Active Directory Forest Recovery (ADFR) – 100% fully-automated recovery of your enterprise AD in the case of full or partial failure or collapse.
Active Directory State Management (ADSM) – real-time visibility into modifications made in AD and the ability to revert the modifications when required.
