I would get the above to manage your AD. I have been using it for years and it allows you to monitor AD activities plus instantly restore any AD objects accidentally deleted. The events are record and store in SQL where you can retrieve it months or year ago. It also allow you to receive live alert if anyone's account gets locked, or someone add/remove member of any group. When security guys ask about auditing, you can have it ready..
