Quest Software’s Award-Winning Active Directory Solution Is Key To Secure And Simplified Identity And Access Management Strategy

Quest One Identity Solutions from Quest Software, now part of Dell, set the standard for AD-based security and management, while expanding that strategy enterprise-wide. In most organizations, Active Directory (AD) is one of the largest and most important identity stores, and one of the most critical applications. Gartner estimates that AD is in use globally* by approximately 95 percent of enterprises (including small, midsize and large organizations). Due to its strategic and operational importance, Active Directory demands advanced security and administration.

A Quest One solution, ActiveRoles® Server, is an industry-leading security and management tool for AD-based identities and accounts. ActiveRoles Server secures Active Directory, enabling organizations to protect this important piece of the identity infrastructure. The Quest One solution enables organizations to administer AD-based identities and accounts in less time, and with fewer errors, through automation for user and group management. ActiveRoles Server provides all the functions necessary to protect, manage and overcome the native shortcomings of Active Directory.

News Facts:

  • Quest today unveiled the latest version of ActiveRoles Server, which is known for simplifying and securing the most common identity management tasks. ActiveRoles Server 6.8 goes a step further by giving the organization even more powerful administrative, security and visibility tools, including:
    • Workflow – ActiveRoles Server simplifies account clean-up and automates manual AD management tasks
    • Exchange Management – ActiveRoles Server provides the most complete capability to manage accounts in Exchange environments as an integrated piece of AD administration
    • Approvals – ActiveRoles Server enables delegation, escalation and re-assignment of administrator requests to ensure security objectives and compliance demands are met
    • Scanning and Pruning – ActiveRoles Server makes avoiding Active Directory group and object bloat simple and complete

Expanded Identity and Access Management (IAM) – ActiveRoles Server supports larger IAM initiatives with tight native integration to a wide range of IAM solutions and key enterprise applications such as Quest One Identity Manager, Quest One Quick Connect, Office365, Microsoft Lync Services, Quest Authentication Services and Quest Defender®

Pricing and Availability:

  • ActiveRoles Server is available now for $25 per enabled user

Supporting Quote:

Jackson Shaw, senior director of product management, Quest Software

“ActiveRoles Server has long been the foundation for effective identity and access management in AD-centric environments. As our customers move beyond identity management and into more advanced IAM principles such as governance and privileged account management, managing the myriad identities and accounts in AD is critical to overall IAM success.”
