Solutions to Optimize Security and Access Control, and Support Windows Server 2012 New Dynamic Access Control Features Showcased at TechEd North America 2012
Orlando, FL – June 13, 2012 - Microsoft TechEd North America, Booth #347: STEALTHbits Technologies, the provider of the industry’s most comprehensive IT security and compliance platform, today announced a new solution designed to help customers prepare their Active Directory, file systems and Microsoft infrastructure in order to take advantage of Windows Server 2012’s new Dynamic Access Control (DAC) features as they migrate to Windows Server 2012. STEALTHbits will showcase its solution at this week’s Microsoft TechEd North America 2012 in Orlando, Florida.
The release of Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 represents the most advanced operating systems in Microsoft’s history and organizations large and small are evaluating what will be required to migrate their existing infrastructure to this new technology platform. Regardless of company size, most organizations will find they have more than a decade of stale data and objects, massive over-allocations of access privileges across their entire environment, and an interweaving of disparate security models and heterogeneous administrative techniques acquired through years of migrations, upgrades, mergers, and acquisitions. STEALTHbits Technologies has architected a solution designed to provide the visibility, structure, and control needed to answer the toughest questions and address some of the most difficult requirements associated with unifying, cleansing and optimizing the Active Directory environment and Microsoft infrastructure.
“The visibility into Active Directory, unstructured data repositories, like the file system and SharePoint, and other key infrastructure components like SQL Server databases, Microsoft Exchange, and the operating system, that our solutions offer is unparalleled,” 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 implement better and more intelligent security controls.”
Windows Server 2012 introduces features that can change the way companies manage file systems access, greatly reducing their dependence on security groups. The reduction in dependence on security groups is one of many benefits provided by Microsoft Corp.’s latest server technology, however most organizations need help with how to clean them up and migrate them to Microsoft’s expression-based conditional permissions. STEALTHbits’ intelligent solutions help clean up toxic, stale and poorly configured groups, as well as reduce the number of groups through the adoption of expression-based conditional permissions. In addition to delivering elevated security, streamlined administration of access privileges, increased efficiency and infrastructure optimization, STEALTHbits offers a smooth and fast migration path to Windows Server 2012, while taking advantage of the many benefits provided by its new DAC features.
“Windows Server 2012 includes notable innovations such as Dynamic Access Control. We’re excited to see companies such as STEALTHbits build on Windows Server 2012 capabilities and demonstrate their products at Microsoft TechEd in Orlando, FL this week,” said Andrew Conway, Director, Product Marketing, Microsoft.
In addition to its portfolio of solutions, STEALTHbits offers prescriptive guidance and expertise in the management of the Microsoft platform, 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.
