STEALTHbits Extends StealthAUDIT Management Platform for Active Directory With New Windows Server 2012 Capabilities

Supports Five-Step Methodology to Aid Customer Migration to Windows Server 2012

GLEN ROCK, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- 09/11/12 -- STEALTHbits Technologies, a leading provider of IT compliance, security, and operational management solutions for the Microsoft computing platform, today announced new capabilities for its flagship offering, the StealthAUDIT Management Platform (SMP) for Active Directory, which provides organizations with the freedom to choose the most appropriate architectural approach for implementing Windows Server 2012's new Dynamic Access Control (DAC) features as they migrate to Microsoft's latest platform.

The release of Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 represent a great advance in operating systems and organizations of all sizes are evaluating what will be required to transition their existing infrastructure to this new technology platform. Windows Server 2012 introduces features that can change the way companies manage file system access, greatly reducing their dependency on security groups. Many organizations need help with cleaning up security groups and moving them to Microsoft's expression-based conditional permissions.

STEALTHbits developed SMP for Active Directory to provide the visibility, structure, and control needed to answer the toughest questions and address requirements associated with unifying, cleansing and optimizing the Active Directory environment and Microsoft infrastructure. The platform provides comprehensive data collection, analysis, and bulk administration capabilities for organizations of any size. Granular visibility into Active Directory coupled with unique data analysis and correlation techniques makes SMP a one-of-a-kind solution for Active Directory management, providing value across multiple groups within an organization.

In addition to its portfolio of solutions, STEALTHbits offers prescriptive guidance and expertise in the management of Windows Server 2012, unstructured data, and access intelligence to help organizations of any size perform critical tasks associated with achieving the unified security model, clarity in access, increased performance, and reduced overhead they desire.

Supporting this release is STEALTHbits' latest white paper, "Five Steps That Get You from A to DAC in Windows Server 2012 -- Enabling the Benefits of Dynamic Access Control," offering customers a valuable resource for preparing the environment for Windows Server 2012. STEALTHbits' experts outline a simple five-step plan to help customers make the transition, beginning with performing a thorough evaluation of data and data collection, and concluding the process by assigning conditional permissions. The full list includes:

  • Scan and collect
  • Discover and analyze
  • Cleanup and remediate
  • Impact analysis
  • Data classification and conditional permissions

"The release of the StealthAUDIT Management Platform for Active Directory dovetails perfectly with our latest white paper, further expanding a diverse repository of resources for customers looking to exploit the capabilities of Windows Server 2012," said Adam Laub, vice president, global product management at STEALTHbits Technologies, Inc. "By providing true insight into where issues reside and what needs to be addressed, organizations can begin to fine-tune their Active Directory environment and develop advanced security controls."

Microsoft supports STEALTHbits' Windows Server 2012 migration methodology, and the two companies are committed to working together to ease customers' transition to the latest Microsoft platform and enable them to reap the benefits of the new DAC features more efficiently.

"Windows Server 2012 was built from the cloud up to help customers cloud-optimize IT. One of the many innovative features of Windows Server 2012 is DAC," said Andrew Conway, Director, Product Marketing, Server and Tools, Microsoft. "STEALTHbits has focused on helping customers make the most of DAC."

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one b...
