Special Operations Software Introduces Specops Command

New Group Policy Extension Solution Brings Windows PowerShell Scripting to Every Desktop and Server in the Network -- Easily and Affordably

TORONTO--(Marketwire - October 26, 2007) - Special Operations Software,, a global leader of Group Policy-based Systems Management and Security software, today introduced a new Group Policy extension product, Specops Command™. Specops Command combines Group Policy and PowerShell into one high-impact solution to provide all of the scripting capabilities of Windows PowerShell on each computer in the entire network.

"Windows PowerShell is a wonderful new technology that makes it possible to use scripts to do almost anything on a machine. Group Policy is another great technology that makes it possible to perform lots of changes to many machines at any time. We said 'Why not combine the two?' which is what we did," said Robert Lundh, CEO of Special Operations Software. "We also added a ton of new functionality to our solution of PowerShell remoting, such as instant feedback, reporting and scheduling."

Key features of Specops Command include:

--  Execute scripts every Group Policy interval (every 90 minutes, at
    startup, login, etc.)
--  Scheduling - Decide when and how often a script executes
--  Targeting - Point and click where you want the script to execute
--  Undo scripts - Handy when scripts (Group Policy) fall out of scope
--  Instant reporting and script execution feedback - Learn what happened,
    why and when it did
--  Run scripts with user or computer credentials
--  Automatic Windows PowerShell deployment and automatic
    management/deployment of PowerShell Cmdlets
