By ensuring that the compliance status of the entire network is monitored and updated in the background, administrators, managers and auditors can all know that Group Policy settings are actually taking effect.
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) May 28, 2015
PolicyPak Software, the leader in application configuration management (ACM), today announced a major new update to their Group Policy Compliance Reporter, including the addition of an agentless auditing mode, as shown in this demonstration video.
Admins running the Server Edition of Group Policy Compliance Reporter will now be able to take advantage of an agentless auditing mode to ensure compliance status is pushed from endpoints to a shared database in real-time. The admin team can then use the shared database to:
- Run compliance tests across their entire network.
- Share tests and results across the team.
- Get data on endpoints if even those endpoints are not currently online.
Audit mode ensures that client machines automatically communicate changes in status, with the Server, without the need to install a client-side agent.
Administrators can then query the server to view an instant snapshot of system compliance. Audit mode is only available with the Server Edition of PolicyPak Group Policy Compliance Reporter.
Jeremy Moskowitz, PolicyPak founder and Group Policy MVP, said of the new agentless auditing abilities within Group Policy Compliance Reporter Server Edition: “This new update finally answers the question of ‘Did my Group Policy settings changes make it to my target computers?’ By ensuring that the compliance status of the entire network is monitored and updated in the background, administrators, managers and auditors can all know that Group Policy settings are actually taking effect. The best part is, no client-side software is required to gain this auditing insight. We’re confident that this will give Admins a more complete understanding of their compliance status.”
IT Admins and network administrators who want to try out the powerful auditing functionality within PolicyPak Group Policy Compliance Reporter Server Edition can get a free trial by contacting PolicyPak at the PolicyPak Website , or by calling (800) 883-8002.
