​Singapore Emerges as Center of South East Asian Operations for ManageEngine



​The early morning sun infused with a hint of rain marked the beginning of our maiden customer conference in Singapore.

This being my first visit to the country, I decided to make the most of it by venturing into unknown streets and capture some of the local moments. As a child, I had read and heard wonderful things about this city, especially about its massive infrastructure and welcoming, multi-cultural society. It was a great experience to see it live, finally!

From the super-fast Internet connection (Singapore is among the top 10 nations in terms of Internet speed) to the widely-connected public transport, the variety of delicious cuisines, and the breathtaking architecture that would leave you spell…

​A Mobile Workforce Needs a Mobile Service Desk


By 2015, the number of mobile workers in the world will reach 1.3 billion, according to a recent IDG Connect study. A similar Cisco study found that three out of five workers say they don’t need to be in the office to be productive. The fact is that workers don’t want to be tied to their desktops anymore. And they don’t need to be, nor should they be. Work is now something you do, not a place you go. And for many people, location doesn’t really matter – in a hotel, on a plane, at home, or in a favourite cafe. In a world where people strive for greater freedom and a better work-life balance, the mobile workforce trend is here to stay.​

​Unveiling Your Active Directory Delegations


Ever since Microsoft released Active Directory in 2000, there has been an option referred to as “delegation.” The term is pretty familiar now, but then it was a bit confusing. For Active Directory admins and designers, it was one of the major reasons to move to Active Directory from nearly any other directory operating system. Fast forward nearly 15 years and delegation – the term and technology – is the same. Nothing has changed with delegation, which in this case is not a good thing.

Delegation is the ability for the domain administrator to grant a non-domain administrator the ability to control a portion of the Active Directory environment. This control could be as large as creating user accounts …

Join Our SysAdmin Day 2014 Celebrations


Thank You, Sysadmin

Sysadmin Day is coming and ManageEngine is all set to make it special this year! Almost always, we lose track of the relentless effort sysadmins make behind the scenes to ensure that our jobs are easy. We’ve remained oblivious to their hard work and take them for granted. That said, let’s skip to the part where we can do something about it and finally express our appreciation!

At ManageEngine, we’ve made a commitment to thank as many sysadmins as possible every year on this big day. In the last couple of years, we encouraged IT users to thank their sysadmins by nominating them for a contest. And this year, too, we’re asking you to thank your sysadmins by entering a contest.

Towards the end of 2013, Gartner, Ovum, and other industry experts sounded the death knell for monolithic, end-to-end APM solutions with exhaustive feature sets. With an alarming degree of certainty, no less. The same experts also heralded the rise of “smal…

Auditing Changes to ​Group Policy Settings


The complexities of managing a Microsoft Windows Server infrastructure are critically dependent on the numerous Group Policies, each of which is a collection of settings that IT administrators or users use to centrally enforce security settings and other functional settings to users or computers across the network. ​The downside of a just single setting error will cause inevitable chain of events involving accesses or permissions, which should not have been authorized in the first place, and ultimately compromise IT security and irreversibly damage the organization’s data and reputation.

The solution to monitoring the numerous GPO changes is through change auditing software…
