ADtoolkit’s new release streamlines Active Directory Administrators heavy work loads while providing AD and file share security reporting
(Edgewater, MD - 3.12.2007) Javelina Software, LLC, announced today the release of ADtoolkit v4.0, the essential tool set for Active Directory administrators. ADtoolkit helps administer user, group, computer, contact, and security tasks, all with bulk task execution and streamlined configuration. By working closely with their customers, Javelina Software has refined ADtoolkit into a powerful product that has become a necessity for administrators striving to complete their daily tasks in Microsoft’s Active Directory.
ADtoolkit v4.0, which now contains over 35 individual tools and scores of reports, has been greatly improved with the addition of dozens of customer requested enhancements. Some of the more notable enhancements include: security reporting, complex scheduling, multi-domain support, SMTP email support, PDF format for reports, auto-emailing of reports and output files, and numerous new reports for OUs, printers, local admins, locked out users, password expiration dates, logon hours, and much, much more.
ADtoolkit’s new security reporting tools provide an in-depth look at the security of a network: the exact information needed to comply with government regulations such as HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley. Administrators can now report on Active Directory security, file and share security, as well as Exchange mailbox security, all with pre-configured reports. With these reports IT management can easily identify and address areas of risk.
The complex scheduling provided in this version of ADtoolkit allows Active Directory administrators to schedule tools or reports to run on a re-occurring basis – helping the administrator to keep up with employee changes that occur every day in business. For example, the HR department might update a file every time a new employee is hired. This data would then be imported by the Add Users tool, which was previously scheduled to run once an hour or once a day. Thus, new user accounts are created automatically and the ctive Directory administrator needed only to schedule the process. The administrator has this burden lifted and is able to focus on more important tasks, the new employee is ready to get started, and the company just saved on manpower hours for the administrator and downtime for the new employee.
Javelina software continues to prove through ADtoolkit v4.0 that they are serious about streamlining Microsoft Active Directory’s daily processes and providing administrators with the necessary tools to handle their growing business needs. “Our goal has always been to ease the Active Directory administrator from the burden of these time consuming tasks” states David Ritchie, President of Javelina Software, “we listen to our customers and continue to enhance our product accordingly.”
Updated tools include automated tasks that raise Microsoft Active Directory Administrators productivity to a new level
(Edgewater, MD – 09.27.2007) Javelina Software, LLC, today announced the upgrade of all ADtoolkit Elements from v3.0 to v4.0.ADtoolkit Elements provide the task specific tools necessary for administrators to manage bulk processing of Active Directory (AD).This latest upgrade, based on the award winning ADtoolkit v4.0 engine, contains a host of new features and tools enabling administrators to comply with the growing demands in managing Active Directory.
With the enhanced scheduling and importing, Active Directory administrators can now schedule tools and reports to run at a predefined time in order to keep up with daily employee changes. For example, an HR department might update a file every time a new employee is hired. This data could then be imported by the Add Users tool, which was previously scheduled to run once an hour or once a day. Thus, new user accounts are created automatically and the Active Directory administrator needed only to schedule the process.
The updated Elements also provide greater functionality with the addition of multi domain support, Vista support, Exchange 2007 support, enhanced e-mail support, and tons of new reports, including reports on local admins, locked out users, password expiration dates, logon hours, and much more.
ADtoolkit Elements continue to provide administrators with the specific tools they need to better manage the demanding tasks of Active Directory. David Ritchie, President of Javelina Software states, “We are excited about the impact this new release will have on easing administrator’s workloads in Active Directory and increasing their daily productivity. We love it when our customers tell us that with our product they completed a task in less than an hour that would have taken them weeks.”
New Solution for Microsoft® Active Directory® Administrators Streamlines Tasks and Enables Efficient and Cost Effective Management
ADvantage Elements and ADvantage v2.0 Provide Microsoft® Active Directory® Administrators Flexible Management Options
Task specific tools easily move objects in bulk within Microsoft® Active Directory®
(Edgewater, MD – 12.08.2005) Javelina Software, LLC, today announced ADtoolkit Elements™ v3.0, the task specific tools that facilitate bulk processing of Active Directory® (AD) tasks. ADtoolkit Elements includes major updates to ADreporter, ADusers, ADgroups and ADcontacts. Additionally, specific enhancements were added to the ADtoolkit Elements that were recently released in ADtoolkit v3.0, our award winning solution that ensures expedient management of tasks essential to the administration of Active Directory.
ADtoolkit Elements v3.0 include the ability to move, in bulk, the core objects in Active Directory. Upon upgrading to v3.0, users will easily select and move objects in bulk, such as users, groups, and contacts by selecting a new Organizational Unit.
Additionally, new features have been added to ADreporter. For example, it now provides the ability to report on Nested Members of a group. It also now includes the ability to report on the Deleted Items Folder Size for users with an Exchange mailbox. Administrators can now use ADreporter to send report results to other users via Exchange email. The report outputs have also been enhanced to include copy and paste capabilities.
High compliments come from Jeff Doe, Network Administrator for Faegre and Benson LLP, “Last Logon data is usually the type of information that is hard to get without lengthy steps, but ADreporter now provides a Common Property for it. Now all I have to do is select that common property and run a report to find out last logon information for each DC in the domain.”
In addition to these major upgrades, we’ve made general updates to bring ADtoolkit Elements v3.0 up to date with the features offered in ADtoolkit v3.0. ADtoolkit Elements provide administrators with the task specific tools they need to do their jobs more efficiently. “The new Move tools add more value to the already feature rich and affordable ADtoolkit Elements” states David Ritchie, President.
