NetPro Ships AccessManager

New solution tightens security and drives compliance with role-based access delegation and reporting for Windows and Exchange

PHOENIX, AZ, November 7, 2006 -- NetPro Computing, Inc., a leading provider of distributed services management software, today announced the general availability of AccessManager. The powerful new solution drives security and compliance and lowers administration costs by automating and enforcing role-based access delegation and current and historical reporting for Microsoft Windows and Exchange.

"As new employees come on board, employees change teams and departments, and other staff people are transitioned out, the provisioning, re-provisioning and de-provisioning of their user rights on the network becomes mission critical," said Rod Simmons, director of product management for NetPro.

"Providing workers with access to the right resources and information can be both costly and time-consuming. AccessManager not only provides comprehensive delegation administration, remediation, maintenance, and management, it arms administrators with unprecedented current and historical reporting capabilities often required to ensure security and prove compliance."

AccessManager drives security and compliance and lowers administration costs by automating and remediating role-based access management for Windows, including Active Directory, Exchange, files, folders, shares, printers, registry, and services. AccessManager ensures that when administrators modify roles in the environment, delegation is dynamically updated across the entire enterprise automatically. Further, AccessManager centralizes the management of audit settings enterprise-wide and also conducts proactive access reporting with current and historical reports that detail who can perform what action on system resources.
