Notable Industry Publications Bestow High Honors on ScriptLogic's Active Administrator
Active Directory Management Tool Recognized With a "2008 Editor's Best Award" by Windows IT Pro and as "Readers' Choice" by WindowSecurity.com
BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - August 4, 2008) - ScriptLogic® Corporation, a leading
provider of systems lifecycle management solutions for Microsoft®
Windows®-based networks, today announced that ScriptLogic's Active
Administrator® was named as "Editor's Best" in the systems management
category by Windows IT Pro, a Penton Media publication. Active
Administrator was also honored as "Readers' Choice" in the Group Policy management category by
WindowSecurity.com, a leading Windows security resource site. Active
Administrator provides enterprise-class Active Directory management, centralized event
activity, recovery and Group Policy management.
"Recognition by industry experts, as well as Microsoft users, validates our
product development investments, and shows that we're bringing true value
to enterprises worldwide," said Andy Langsam, president of ScriptLogic. "Active Administrator has consistently garnered
industry accolades because we strive to anticipate and develop the product
enhancements that meet our customers' demands."
The editors of Windows IT Pro selected software solutions for the "2008
Editor's Best Awards" based on the product's strategic importance to the
market, its value to the customer and its competitive advantage. Editors
identify exceptional products that benefit the Windows IT Pro and SQL
Server Magazine reader communities. WindowSecurity.com conducts monthly
polls to determine which product is preferred by network security
administrators in a particular category of third party network security
solutions. Its "Readers' Choice" awards are based entirely on the visitors'
"Our editors are tough, in-the-trenches critics," said Jeff Lewis, group
publisher at Penton Media, which owns Windows IT Pro. "They demand solid
value and performance from the products they select. Editor's Best Award
winners can feel proud that the products and services they developed have
earned the respect and recognition of the Windows IT Pro and SQL Server
Magazine editorial staff."
The Windows IT Pro Award is only the most recent praise given by the
publication. Active Administrator was compared to other Group Policy management tools in a November 2007
Windows IT Pro review. Contributing Editor Eric B. Rux said, "When it comes
to auditing what has happened with Group Policy, Active Administrator has a clear lead on the
competition. If your company requires you to audit whether Group Policy
follows your change-control process, then Active Administrator is the clear
choice for your environment."
In June, ScriptLogic announced its Active Directory Management Solution, a bundled
solution that combines Quest® ActiveRoles Server™ and Spotlight® on
Active Directory. Active Administrator 5.0 features enhanced usability and
Active Directory auditing, as well as support for
Microsoft Windows Server® 2008.
