ScriptLogic Updates Active Administrator, Launches Active Directory Management Solution

Version 5.0 of Active Administrator supports Windows Server 2008

Early this month, ScriptLogic Corp. released version 5.0 of its Active Administrator server management product, which will be included in the company's new Active Directory Management Solution suite.

Active Administrator 5.0 now includes support for Windows Server 2008 and ADMX Group Policies, the company said in a press release. It also features enhancements to its Active Directory auditing capabilities, including improved scalability, the ability to gather more data from events, and new report management framework. The user interface has also been improved, the company said.

"Enhancements in the latest version of ScriptLogic's Active Administrator make this very popular Active Directory management tool even more efficient and user-friendly," said Jon Rolls, ScriptLogic's senior director of product management."

"Moreover," he added, "this enterprise-class product enables greater scalability and resilience, providing a more robust audit trail and ensuring customers derive the maximum value from investments in their Active Directory infrastructure."

The new version of Active Administrator will be the third component in ScriptLogic's Active Directory Management Solution package, now available; the other two products are the Quest ActiveRoles Server (an Active Directory authority delegation tool) and Spotlight on Active Directory (an Active Directory monitoring solution).

Together, all three products provide centralized Active Directory management and users to recover online deletions as well as "undo" unwanted Active Directory changes.

The entire Active Directory Management Solution is available for anywhere between 500 and 5,000 users ($30 for each user). Each product in the solution is also available separately. For more information, visit http://scriptlogic.com.
