Security Explorer 9.9.2 - Whats New

Quest® Security Explorer® 9.9.2

Quest® Security Explorer® 9.9.2

Quest® Security Explorer® provides a single console for managing access controls, permissions and security across Microsoft® platforms that span multiple servers. The product provides a broad array of security enhancements including the ability to identify who has rights to resources across the entire organization. It also provides the ability to grant, revoke, clone, modify and overwrite permissions quickly and from a central location.

Unlike native tools, Security Explorer provides the ability to back up and restore permissions only, ensuring the integrity of data. To help meet auditing requirements, Security Explorer provides convenient reports that can be pulled on the fly. Lastly, the product's cleanup capabilities address common post-migration security issues.

This document highlights key features new in this release. For more information about these or any features, see the Security Explorer 9.9.2 Installation and User Guides.
