AdventNet's ADManager Plus; Perfect Solution to Clean up Active Directory

PLEASANTON, California, October 31, 2007

AdventNet Inc., the leading provider of enterprise IT management software, today upgrades its ADManager Plus with a complete solution to Clean up the Active Directory. The increase in size of an organization and the continual change in roles and departments of employees, necessitates a need to allocate newer resources and proper management of unused accounts. These unused accounts present in the active directory are to be handled with utmost caution to avoid unauthorized access, which questions the security of your network. Any dormant/inactive account can turn malicious with time providing leverage for hackers. They are to be spotted regularly through continuous audits, and disabled or deleted.

ADManager Plus understands the difficulties faced by an administrator with conventional command line tools or scripts to identify then delete, disable or move unused accounts in Active Directory. It provides a single click solution for the administrator/help desk technician to generate a report on all inactive users/computers present in a Domain or Organizational unit for a given period of time. Using this report he/she can delete, disable or rearrange these suspect objects as needed.

"The bottleneck I was facing in changing the user home directories was resolved quicker than I thought it would and with very little administrative effort. We have used the reports of ADManager Plus on numerous occasions, from notifying users of expired passwords to finding out which computers were no longer being used or which computers had been renamed but Active Directory still had the old computer name stored, it has helped us cleanup Active Directory with ease. I am very impressed by this product and would highly recommend it to any organization of any size. This is a product you can't go wrong with," says Masood Darr, Help Desk Coordinator, Bruce Edmeades Co. a satisfied customer.

"Un-used user/computer accounts pose an immense security threat to any Active Directory environment. ADManager Plus identifies this and the importance to curb such threats by providing a right solution for the Administrator," says the Product Manager, Manikandan Thangaraj.

A 30-day trial with full functionality is available for evaluation. For further details on customers, pricing, technical support and the product visit our site at http://www.admanagerplus.com
