ActiveBatch helps organizations prevent unauthorized access to systems and data with security-driven, enterprise-wide workload automation.

Optimize Your Security Framework with Business Process Automation

IT environments are becoming more complex every day, spanning off- or on-premises data centers, private clouds, or public clouds. This makes vendor and technology compatibility a security landmine.

Universal workload automation solutions connect disparate systems, consolidate redundant tools, and eliminate silos — all in a single environment. Using one workload automation solution, IT teams can implement enterprise-wide security protocols that make ensuring compliance, regulating access control, and orchestration and provisioning easier than ever.

Manage Automated Processes Across Critical Tools

ActiveBatch allows IT and DevOps teams to monitor and manage processes from a single point of control. Using direct connectors or the API adapter, IT can integrate with enterprise applications and deploy a single, enterprise-wide security framework. ActiveBatch employs high availability non-cluster failover so that in the event of an outage or failure, jobs, and plans are redirected to standby systems and completed on or near schedule.

Minimize Manual Work

With immediate alerts for any production issues, IT can perform quick identification and remediation of problem workflows. Auto-remediation workflows can also be designed, lessening manual intervention and minimizing security vulnerabilities due to human error. Teams can even automate their server patching process.

ActiveBatch also enables users to create jobs that mimic the logic of custom-built Template Jobs. A single change to the template seamlessly passes to all Reference Jobs, meaning fewer locations to update credentials, fewer objects to secure, and fewer independent audit trails to review.

Windows Security Model And Multi-Tenant Architecture

ActiveBatch fully supports the Windows Security Model, including Kerberos and Active Directory. Organizations can use their existing accounts and groups for simpler management and security of users and groups. ActiveBatch is an object-oriented system, so all User Accounts are objects. As a result, all Jobs or Plans associated with the User Account require just one change to the User Account Object rather than multiple changes to each Job or Plan.

ActiveBatch also supports LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol), allowing a user to use a single, enterprise-wide directory and provide a single point of administration across a heterogeneous environment.

ActiveBatch’s multi-tenant architecture (virtual root) allows organizations to designate access and permissions for a more secure and effective automation environment based on organizational needs.

ActiveBatch Supported Authentication Types:

  • Username/Password
  • Multi-Factor Authentication
  • SAP Credentials
  • Keyfile/Passphrase
  • Twitter Authentication

Audit and Revision Capabilities

ActiveBatch’s comprehensive audit and policy framework drives improved governance throughout the organization by preventing and minimizing the impact of unauthorized workflow changes. ActiveBatch provides a complete audit trail, revision history, and changeset capabilities on each object so users can view all changes made within the ActiveBatch environment. 

As a result, users can more easily track object changes to scheduling objects, troubleshoot issues faster and more reliably, and minimize the business impact caused by mistaken changes.

More Secure File Transfers

ActiveBatch provides advanced scheduling capability through event-driven architecture, simplifying high-volume transfers and complex environments.

  • FTP event triggers kick off workflows based on the creation or modification of files on any FTP server
  • Determine if files have successfully transferred with parallel transfer capabilities, automatic restarts, and built-in checks
  • Real-time monitoring and in-depth views provide full visibility into automated managed file transfer activity and system performance

ActiveBatch supports file transfer protocols including SFTP, FTPS, and web tunneling. Sensitive data is encrypted with TLS/SSL. User permissions are granted based on the Windows Security Model.

CyberArk Application Access Manager (Formerly, Application Identity Manager)

ActiveBatch V12 provides an out-of-the-box integration with CyberArk's Application Access Manager, allowing ActiveBatch workflows to dynamically retrieve credentials from CyberArk at runtime before dispatching Jobs to Agents. This extends CyberArk's benefits to ActiveBatch, providing an additional layer of security and simplifying credential management.
