Active Directory management made easy
Active Directory management has a key role in the IT environment of every organization. CionSystems provides a software management suite that fills critical gaps in Active Directory Management, Microsoft Azure, Office 365, and Microsoft Exchange. It provides a full range of operations, Identity & Access Management, and enhanced security. It allows businesses to effectively, efficiently, and economically manage security – for both on-premise and off-premise systems, applications, and data. The software management suite consists of several distinct software modules that can be used independently or in any combination depending on the needs of each customer.
Some organizations adopt a reactive approach to Active Directory Management. Even with strong policies in place, waiting until something breaks and then troubleshooting it is disruptive to the organization and expensive. CionSystems simplifies things by alerting you when your Active Directory changes thereby enabling you to take the corrective action.
Active Directory Management Tools
Active Directory Manager Pro
Manage your AD seamlessly with a web-based Solution
Active Directory Manager Pro provides full management of the data and information contained within an enterprise’s Active Directory environment. Unlike the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in for AD, Active Directory Manager Pro provides a rich, web-based graphical user interface that can be securely accessed using any browser from anywhere on the network: on-premise or via secure remote access methods, such as HTTP/S or virtual private networking (VPN).
AD Manager Pro allows IT staff to delegate administration across various security administrators, business units, or other delegation models, which is a key gap in Microsoft’s rudimentary tools. In addition, it supports workflows and approval processes for provisioning and access requests in Active Directory Management. The combination of secure browser access, delegated administration, and workflow capabilities solve several key problems in Active Directory Management that are not addressed by native AD tools:

Multi-factor Authentication – 2FA Authentication
Protect your Windows servers, desktops, laptops, tablets, virtual systems in enterprise and cloud
Multi-Factor Authentication assures your data and accounts are protected and significantly reduce the chance of being hacked. It is an additional security layer for your Windows Machines that is designed to prevent anyone from accessing or using your computer, even if they know your username and password. Multi-factor authentication verification reinforces privacy, security, and data protection even when the password is compromised. Imagine unauthorized access to your computer that has everything in it locally or remotely. If the password is compromised then the following may happen:
> The hacker will have access to all your data, critical files, email, contacts, photos etc.
> Login to all of your internet accounts
> Pretend to be you and send unwanted or harmful emails to your contacts
> Use your account to reset the passwords for your other accounts (banking, shopping, etc.)
One of the most significant security weaknesses in any information system is the password-based single factor credential that is commonly used to authenticate a user to a system. Security experts widely advocate for replacing single factor credentials with multi-factor authentication (MFA) or two-factor authentication methods. MFA solutions are dramatically more secure due to their ability to withstand brute force, keylogger, man-in-the-middle, and other common attacks.
Multi-factor authentication is an extra layer of security that requires not only a password and username but also something that only, the user has, something only they should know or have immediately on hand, such as a physical USB disk or a mobile phone to receive OTP (One time Password), Quiz questions or an OTP to external email address. Multi-factor authentication assures your data and accounts are protected and significantly reduce the chance of being hacked from all intruders.
Active Directory Recovery Manager

Disasters can occur at any time, such as unwanted schema extensions or irreversible failures in your AD. Any disaster can result in lengthy unplanned downtime causing business-critical applications (Exchange, ERP, financial systems, etc) to be unavailable. If the damage to your AD is extensive, restoring your entire Domain is the fastest alternative.
Implementing the right tool for comprehensive deletion protection is critical to turning major problems into minor restores. CionSystems offers an easy-to-use, fast, online Active directory backup and restore solution. Accurate backups and recovering quickly after an outage enables you to reduce the time and costs associated with AD disasters and minimize or eliminate the impact on users throughout your enterprise.
