N-able Technologies® Offers Free Active Directory Searching and Reporting Tool to IT Administrators

New ADSearch Tool Complements N-able's N-central® 7.0 Platform, Expedites IT Management Tasks and Improves IT Productivity by Simplifying and Streamlining Use of Windows Active Directory

OTTAWA--(Marketwire - October 7, 2010) -  N-able Technologies®, the global leader in remote network and systems management (NSM) software for IT departments and managed service providers (MSPs), today announced the free availability of ADSearch, a new enterprise-class tool designed to give IT administrators a time-saving, convenient approach to Windows Active Directory (AD) searching and reporting.

Offered free of charge by N-able, ADSearch is valued at $249 US. The downloadable software installs in seconds, immediately providing IT administrators and network managers with an easy-to-use, query-based interface and the capability to quickly build custom queries for issues specific to both Windows AD and Microsoft Exchange.

"Gathering AD information is an inefficient and time-consuming exercise that robs thousands of IT departments of productivity every day," says Frank Colletti, Director of Sales, N-able Technologies. "Our free ADSearch tool alleviates this nagging pain point and delivers a substantial productivity boost with convenient AD searching and reporting."

ADSearch is ideal for use by administrators, help desk technicians, auditors and other users who require fingertip access to AD information. It offers an efficient and hassle-free approach to AD tasks, allowing IT managers to perform a wide range of searching and reporting functions from a single centralized interface. The software extracts vital data from Microsoft Windows 2000/2003/2008 AD environments in minimal time and displays the results in an easily understandable format.

Using the tool, IT administrators can perform customized searches and generate reports focused on contacts, domains, organizational units, groups, computers, printers, objects, object property or property wildcards. Specialized search reports on all AD objects can also be generated using the search feature, and report and search results generated can be printed directly or exported to various standard formats such as CSV, CSVDE, XLS or TXT.

ADSearch is designed to complement N-able's N-central® 7.0 toolset, the company's flagship product for remote NSM. Launched to the midmarket in early 2010, N-central 7.0 has been deployed by thousands of IT service organizations to remotely monitor and manage over 35,000 small and midsize businesses. With N-central 7.0, IT departments can quickly automate their services, remotely monitor and manage virtually any device on their network from a central management console and proactively address and resolve IT infrastructure performance issues from practically anywhere, at anytime.
