ScriptLogic's Security Explorer 6.0 Extends Trusted Security and Access Management Functionality to Servers and Workstations Across the Enterprise

Version 6.0 Offers a More Powerful User Interface, Provides Windows Vista Support and Adds Controls From Another ScriptLogic Product to Manage Services and Tasks

BOCA RATON, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 29, 2007 -- ScriptLogic® Corporation (, a leader in network administration software for Microsoft® Windows®-based networks, today announced the availability of Security Explorer™ 6.0, a powerful, graphical solution for real-time, interactive management of access controls and security on Windows file servers and workstations across the enterprise. New features in Version 6.0 include an updated, extensible user interface, centralized management of file security on workstations as well as servers, more extensive security controls, interactive enhancements for increased productivity and Windows Vista support.

The latest version also consumes the functionality from Service Explorer™, another of ScriptLogic's server solutions. The functionality in Service Explorer is being integrated into Security Explorer 6.0 to consolidate and simplify ScriptLogic's offerings to its customers. In addition to centralizing management of security controls and settings, IT professionals can now use Security Explorer to manage services and tasks on multiple servers and desktops, thereby reducing administration costs.

Management of security on Windows workstations and servers is complex and time-consuming -- especially when handling permissions for the file system (NTFS), printers, the registry, file shares, services and scheduled tasks. ScriptLogic's Security Explorer gives the IT professional the power to manage, search, duplicate, backup and recover permissions and security for all these items, across the network from a centralized point-and-click interface. Security Explorer simplifies management to ensure that access to privileged information is restricted on Windows servers and workstations, playing a key role in standardizing security management across the entire Windows network.

"Security Explorer extends trusted security and access management functionality to servers and workstations across the enterprise," said Brian Small, vice president of product development at ScriptLogic. "Version 6.0 builds on Security Explorer's increasing popularity with fantastic user interface enhancements, and innovative and customer-requested enhancements, such as cached browsing, improved detection and remediation of broken permission inheritance and management of advanced service options."

Security Explorer 6.0's graphical interface and enhanced security controls gives the administrator unprecedented speed and power in managing the security of Windows server and workstation resources. Enterprises can increase security, easily demonstrate regulatory compliance and improve the IT department's productivity.

Enhancements to Security Explorer 6.0 include:

--  Centralized Management of File and other Security Settings -- Security
    Explorer 6.0 consolidates more Windows network security functions into one
    console, adding management of services and scheduled tasks. IT pros have an
    enhanced view of the full security posture of remote computer(s).
--  Improved Productivity -- Version 6.0 offers caching and interactive
    enhancements to give IT professionals faster results.
--  Windows Vista Support -- The new version supports Microsoft's Vista
    operating system, meaning customers will be supported as they manage their
    upgrades to Vista and related Vista applications.
"ScriptLogic's Security Explorer is an all-in-one security monitoring tool that is a systems administrator's dream," said Michael Stillmunks, senior network administrator and systems engineer at ATMEL Corporation. "The latest version offers tremendous ease of access to all of your security controls and a fast, user-friendly interface. Moreover, the whole ScriptLogic product line integrates with one another, adding value for any systems administrator."
