Enhanced help for managing access control in Windows environments

Fri, 12 Jun 2009 11:37:40 GMT

A couple months ago I did a real training for free (tm) session on Top 11 Dos and Don’ts of Managing Access Control in the Windows/AD Environment and many of you were impressed like me with how Quest Access Manager simplified or eliminated many of my recommendations. 

At the time of the webinar, Alex Binotto from Quest indicated a number of your questions about Access Manager would be addressed in the upcoming release of 1.1 which is now here.  New features include:

  • Remote Windows Scanning - reduces the number of agents to be installed
  • Support Windows Clusters
  • Support for storage devices – NAS (NetApp/EMC/etc.)
  • Delegation/Segregation of Duties - now you can limit users of Access Manager to what I would call "look but don't touch".  That means they can assess and report on access permissions across the network without the ability to modify access control. 

Nice job, Alex and company.  If you'd like to watch my webinar referenced above click here.  To learn more about Access Manager click here.
