Accessing the Active Directory Tree

Enable Active Directory synchronization to view the Active Directory tree.

The Active Directory tree has the following characteristics:

  • It varies depending on your network and organizational setup

  • Provides two tabs, Users and Endpoints, to enable quick access to user or endpoint information and security details

  1. Access the Control Manager management console.
  2. Navigate to Directories > Users/Endpoints.
  3. Go to Active Directory, and expand the folders to display available items.

A screen similar to the following appears:



Refer to the following table for details:

Column Name

Description

User

The name or email address of the user

Click the name to open the User Details > Contact Information screen. Refer to Displaying User Details for details.

Note:

With Active Directory integration disabled, the Users > All tree list all local users from various endpoints regardless of their duplicate status. Users having the same user names can occur as computers/servers/laptops can have multiple local users.

Domain

If Active Directory integration is enabled, this corresponds to the name of the domain. Without Active Directory, the value in this column reflects the endpoint name/host name.

Manager

The user's direct reporting manager, as saved in Active Directory

Endpoints

The number of endpoints, which a user is currently logged on.

Security Threats

The number of security threats detected over 90 days

Click the value to display the User Details > Security Threats screen. Refer to Displaying User Detailsfor details.

Control Manager counts and consolidates detections having these types of threats:

  • Virus/Malware

  • Spyware/Grayware

  • Content violation

  • Spam

  • Phishing email

  • Web violation

  • DLP incident

  • C&C callback

  • Behavior Monitoring violation

  • Firewall violation

For example, while Henry is using endpoint us-mkt-dev1, there are 10 virus/malware detections and two web violations. Therefore, Henry's security threats count is 12.

Associated Policies

The number of Control Manager policies assigned to the user

Click the value to display the User Details > Policy Status screen. Refer to Displaying User Details for details.
