Group Policy Management

 
Powerful group policies simplified. Harness the power of group policy without the risk of administration errors through NetIQ Group Policy Administrator.
 

NetIQ Group Policy Administrator™ is a centralized management tool that allows you to edit, test, review and compare GPO changes before implementing them in your live environment. This helps you safely implement and alter Microsoft Group Policy Objects (GPOs) in your Active Directory environment.
 

Safely change group policies
 
Remove the risk for untested changes and unforeseen consequences. Currently, Microsoft does not provide a way to make changes to Group Policy Objects that are not immediately deployed. With NetIQ Group Policy Administrator™, you can model and test Group Policy Object changes off-line in your own Active Directory environment before implementing them.
 

  • Model off-line
  • Test before implementing
 
 
Approval process
 
Changes to Group Policies affect everyone in your enterprise, not just the IT center. Group Policy Administrator's robust delegation and workflow process allows critical stakeholders to approve changes before implementation happens. This reduces unforeseen business impacts and lessens the chances of unauthorized changes.
 
 
Detailed reports
 
Staying compliant and reducing risk is easier with Group Policy Administrator. You receive detailed and comparative reports allowing you to diagnose errors, determine the cumulative effect and document all changes. This is perfect for passing audits, proving compliance and showing the results of GPO changes.

 
  • Diagnose errors
  • Determine effects
  • Document changes
