With the emergence of increasingly-complex distributed computing environments, today's Systems Administrators are faced with many challenges. From Active Directory management and patch deployment to group policy management, Spyware, enhanced security, permission management, regulatory compliance, disaster recovery, remote access and application deployment, the Administrator’s job is growing ever more time consuming.
Fortunately, ScriptLogic Corporation has developed a suite of software products for managing and securing Windows server-based networks. The Byte Dr., a ScriptLogic Authorized Partner, can provide you with point and click network and workstation management solutions for your internal users or as a supplement to your internal network management resources.
ScriptLogic solutions can be applied to any organization, with from 10 to 10,000 computers. They quickly pay for themselves in reduced labour costs, improved network flexibility and enhanced network security. The current ScriptLogic solutions include:
Active Administrator enables administrators to efficiently manage Active
Directory Security and Group Policy in Windows 2000 and 2003-based networks.
Active Administrator dramatically eases the task of reviewing and managing
security within Active Directory, especially where many delegations have
been made, or following an NT4 migration. Extensive security reporting
and auditing, and self-healing role-based permissions templates help administrators
achieve and demonstrate regulatory compliance. Finally, Active Administrator
makes administrators and users more productive with instant rollback of
Group Policy changes, easy recovery from deleted users, groups or Organizational
Units, and the ability to edit and analyze Group Policy Objects offline,
without affecting the live environment. <<More>>

File System Auditor™ audits, reports and alerts on Windows file server activity, showing who touched which files and folders, when and on what server. Unlike event log consolidation solutions, which provide countless entries to represent a single event, File System Auditor uses intelligent auditing at the file system level to capture all activity and display each event as a single entry, which provides for better reporting, analysis and decision making.
For organizations looking to validate their security controls, establish they have met compliance requirements or simply monitor file system activity, File System Auditor provides the real-time monitoring of every file system event needed to produce viable, trustworthy and complete reports of user activity. <<More>>
Enterprise Security Reporter is a comprehensive discovery and reporting solution for documenting file security, group memberships, Active Directory, and other security settings on Windows servers. Enterprise Security Reporter’s agent-less discovery retrieves and stores data on NTFS permissions, local account databases, user and group accounts in Active Directory, and security settings on other resources such as printers and file shares. It then provides the administrator with tools to analyze, query, and report on the security and configuration of the network. For administrators burdened with compliance reporting and security auditing requirements, Enterprise Security Reporter is an essential tool, increasing productivity and consistency. <<More>>
Service Explorer is an enterprise-wide solution for central management
of services, tasks and their respective user accounts and passwords on
Windows computers. Every Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 computer on an enterprise
network uses services to function correctly and perform tasks like virus
detection and backup. Every one of these services requires a highly-privileged
service account user name and password which is stored locally on each
computer and must be regularly changed for security. Rather than changing
passwords on computers one-at-a-time, Service Explorer lets administrators
simultaneously manage services and tasks on all NT/2000/XP/2003 servers
and desktops, reducing administration costs and increasing security. <<More>>
