- Added the ability to save reports and views in XLSX format
- Added the ability to backup, transfer and restore scheduled tasks
Some users have reported issues when using ADHQ to communicate with Office 365. These issues are caused by a change Microsoft has made to require TLS 1.2 for connections to 365. Continue reading to learn more about this issue and to discover an easy workaround to make sure ADHQ continues to work in your environment.
ADHQ 9 is right around the corner. The team has been hard at work fixing bugs and fulfilling long-standing enhancement requests, and it's high time to show off the results!
Like always, the beta cycle is your opportunity to shape the future of ADHQ. If you've got an idea for something you've already wanted to be able to do, even if you think it's a pipe dream, let us know. We love making the tool better for our customers, and you never know whether others might find your idea useful too!
Today, Javelina is proud to announce the next version of ADsecurity, a specialized tool for documenting and repairing issues with your network security. ADsecurity 8 is absolutely loaded with new reports, containing over 5 times as many reports as previous versions of the program. New reports include the ability to report on Exchange 2016 mailbox permissions, and to locate specific permissions like Delete, Full Control, or Reset Password anywhere they appear across your network. Especially noteworthy are the reports in a new folder called Alerts, which have been purposefully crafted to help you identify areas of your network with common security flaws, like:
Javelina is proud to announce today the release of ADHQ Lite, the latest addition to our ADHQ family. Built on the same foundation as the Professional and Enterprise editions of the product, ADHQ Lite includes all of the tools needed to manage your Active Directory users, groups, and contacts, in bulk from a simple, familiar user-interface. Browse through Active Directory from the Home View to view and modify the properties of individual objects, or take advantage of a powerful attribute-level search and replace feature to easily identify and update values throughout your network. And of course, ADHQ Lite provides flexible task scheduling so you can run these tools as often as your heart desires.
What’s that, you say? Holes in my network security? It's true, even if you're paying big money for firewalls and other security tools, virtually everyone has security flaws in their Active Directory network. And not tiny flaws either, but real issues that have led to real security breaches in networks just like yours. But we have great news for you, because today we are announcing our latest product, RMR for Active Directory.
RMR is like a virus scanner for AD, designed to scan your entire network and expose security issues, mis-configurations, and hidden back doors. And, unlike most security tools, RMR helps you fix the problems it finds with automated one-click fixes and manual instructions for those who prefer a more human touch.
Javelina Software, specialists in Active Directory management tools, announced today the release of RMR for Active Directory (RMR), a tool for securing Active Directory networks by identifying and eliminating security problems within the network. RMR operates much like a virus scanner, scanning each object in your Active Directory network to determine if an attacker can exploit them to infiltrate your network or escalate their privileges. And, after the scanning process is complete, RMR can immediately remediate those problems with automated one-click fixes.
Javelina is proud to announce today the latest edition of our Active Directory reporting tool, ADreporter. We've been hard at work adding lots of new features to the tool, and you'll be thrilled (we hope) to see the result. ADreporter 8.0 contains a large set of new common properties that can be reported on, or used to filter report results. Some new properties make it easier to report on common values of Active Directory attributes (Allow Logon Always, When Deleted, Is Password Expired, etc), while others expose brand new values to ADreporter administrators. The latter list includes several dozen new properties for Exchange 2016 and Office 365 environments, as well as some new security values like "Is Password Empty" to detect accounts with no passwords and "Inter Domain Trust Account"/"MNS Logon Account" to detect special purpose user accounts.
Today, Javelina is announcing the next generation of ADtoolkit with the release of two new products: ADHQ 8 Professional and ADHQ 8 Enterprise. Built from the foundation introduced in ADtoolkit 7.0, these products continue Javelina's goal of simplifying Active Directory management for both single-user and multi-user environments. We've extended our Exchange support to Exchange 2016, and introduced new features to help users with hybrid Active Directory/Office 365 networks. Another big change is a brand new set of reports including some long-requested new arrivals like "User Photos" and "Users with Blank Passwords". ADHQ Reports are now sorted into folders, making it easy to locate related reports.
