Group Policy Management
Quest Group Policy Manager 3.0
This year's Silver Award in SearchWinIT.com's Group Policy Products of the Year goes to Quest Software for its Group Policy Manager 3.0. The product is designed to help organizations efficiently deploy and manage Group Policy Objects for better security and control of their IT infrastructure.
Built to complement Microsoft's Group Policy Management Console, Quest's Group Policy Manager provides administrators with several features for maintaining better control over Group Policy. They include offline GPO editing, enhanced Resultant Set of Policy reporting and a test framework that allows users to assess changes to GPOs securely before they are implemented.
Group Policy Manager gives users reusable templates, allowing administrators to conveniently maintain common Group Policy Object settings in one place. Users even have the flexibility of applying each template to one or more GPOs, multiple templates to a single GPO or several templates across domains and forests.
The product helps protect environments and ensure regulatory compliance by allowing admins to automatically schedule modifications to GPO policy settings, links, security and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) filters.
Pricing: Quest Software Inc.'s North American pricing for Group Policy Manager 3.0 is listed at $8 per enabled user account.
