New Solution Combines Quest ActiveRoles Server and Quest Spotlight on Active Directory with ScriptLogic Active Administrator 5.0; Now Offering Enhanced Usability and Active Directory Auditing, along with Support for Windows Server 2008

London, Europe– June 3, 2008 – ScriptLogic® Corporation, a leading provider of systems lifecycle management solutions for Microsoft® Windows®-based networks, today announced its Active Directory Management Solution, a bundled solution that combines Quest® ActiveRoles Server™ and Spotlight® on Active Directory with ScriptLogic’s just-released Active Administrator® 5.0. Together, these three solutions allow total management of the Active Directory lifecycle, thereby enhancing security, compliance and productivity. This new version of ScriptLogic’s flagship Active Directory administration solution, Active Administrator, provides enterprise-class performance and now offers enhanced usability and Active Directory auditing, as well as support for Microsoft Windows Server® 2008.

ScriptLogic’s Active Administrator 5.0 provides centralized event auditing, recovery and Group Policy management, while ActiveRoles Server empowers administrators to delegate Active Directory authority to junior IT staff and create approval workflows.

The combined features of these products address every facet of Active Directory management.

ScriptLogic’s Active Directory Management Solution offers a number of key benefits including centralized auditing of Active Directory changes, instant, online recovery of deletions, and the ability to “undo” Active Directory changes. Moreover, the bundled solution offers advanced Group Policy management and policy-based delegation for department and junior administrators.
