Since passwords are the primary authentication method in Active Directory, strong password policies are essential for securing access. Specops Password Policy, enforces password complexity rules defined by your organization.
A significant limitation with standard password functionality is that only a single complexity rule can be applied across the entire domain, affecting all user accounts in the same way independent of their security risk factor. Specops Password Policy overcomes this restriction by allowing you to specify multiple password policies based on rules you define. It is based on Group Policy technology, and can be configured in any number of group policies within the Active Directory.
Specops Deploy takes Group Policy based Software Deployment to the next level. It provides functionality that can be expected in a modern software deployment system such as detailed feedback, scheduling, installing without rebooting, support for non Windows Installer setups and much more. Since Specops Deploy uses Group Policy technology, additional infrastructure besides Active Directory is not required. The product does not affect the AD Schema.
When Active Directory has been in use for a while you will have a growing problem with old user and computer accounts that do not correspond to real physical users or computers anymore. With Active Directory Janitor you can search the entire network to identify these accounts. You can then decide, from a number of criteria, which ones that are outdated and finally delete, disable or move them.
Regular maintenance of your Active Directory is important for many reasons. One must first understand that the Active Directory database exists on each Domain Controller. So if you have many domain controllers, the information in the Active Directory database is replicated between the doamin controllers on preset intervalls.
Two important pieces in the Active Directory database are the User accounts and Computer accounts in your network environment. Information about the users and computers are thus stored in Active Directory and replicated around the network on the Domain Controllers.

Installation and usage is simple and straightforward, and you will be up and running in hours, not days, weeks or even months - which is the implementation time of competing solutions.
You can now do this and more by using Active Directory and Group Policy, an infrastructure you already own and have invested significant time, money, and resources in building. Specops Inventory is the first Group Policy based inventory solution reporting on all information from your Active Directory computer and user infrastructure, providing detailed asset tracking data for virtually all Windows based hardware and software.
Specops Virtual Deploy is new product from Specops Software that makes it possible to take advantage of Microsoft App-V application virtualization directly, using only existing investments in infrastructure and knowledge.
