CHARLOTTE, N.C., July 30 /PRNewswire/ -- M3 Technology Group, a Microsoft Gold and National Systems Integrator (NSI) Partner, has created and developed a unique product that provides unparalleled security and accountability to Active Directory and Exchange Administrators.

"Most companies using Active Directory have inadvertently exposed themselves to internal security issues because of the inherent complexities in auditing and tracking changes made within Active Directory," Michael Byrnes, CEO and Managing Director of M3 Technology Group, said. "Active Manage is the answer. Simply put, this remarkable tool allows you to track exactly who did what, when."

Active Manage protects privacy and sensitive information on your server by creating a detailed date and time stamp for every Active Directory modification made from within Active Manage. This eliminates mistakes, reduces liability and creates an extra layer of security by controlling user access. Active Manage allows you to define limits on the creation of mailboxes and restricts users from changing their own accounts and elevating permissions.

Active Manage is web-based, so end-users do not need to install anything. In fact, this affordable tool can be downloaded off the web and fully deployed in about an hour.

"And that's not even the best part," said Bill Passmore, M3 Technology Group Director of Operations. "Active Manage is unbelievably scalable and incredibly intuitive. It mirrors the Microsoft Active Directory wizard for new user creation and features many of the same functions, directories and navigation as Active Directory. Anyone who's familiar with Active Directory will immediately be comfortable with how Active Manage functions. Regardless of your experience with Active Directory, users will find it rather intuitive. Active Manage allows less technical staff to perform administrative functions that historically required more experienced personnel with elevated privileges."

This innovative tool was born from M3 Technology Group's extensive real- world experience managing and supporting our customer's Active Directory and Exchange environments. M3 Technology Group continually has their eye on future technology. Active Manage 3.0 due for release later this year, will provide support for Exchange 2007.
