Ensure that the right user configurations and administrative privileges are always presented to the right users with Desktop Authority and Privilege Manager. Both use real-time targeting to get it right every time, no matter where are or how your users log in. Use the simple interface to define automatic configurations for new users, based on a granular mix of more than 40 criteria. These criteria include user identity, machine OS, organization, and more. With real-time targeting, you can also be confident that existing users have the most up-to-date user configurations in Desktop Authority.
Target configuration settings based on criteria.
More than 40 predefined criteria to automatically deploy unique desktop configurations are presented in Desktop Authority. Those criteria include the user, type of desktop (physical, virtual or terminal), the computer, and deployment timing. Easily define configurations based on user or organizational identity, operating system and type of machine, physical or virtual environment, connection type and more. With supplemental Boolean support, you can target settings based on multiple criteria.
Follow the user with dynamic desktops.
Desktop Authority evaluates the targeting criteria at the time the profile is applied. This means that when changes occur, such as your users moving to different locations, logging into different machines or accessing terminal servers, the targeting changes automatically. Desktop Authority also re-applies the desired setting the next time the profile refreshes when your users initiate changes.
With Desktop Authority, you can configure more than 30 individual elements, including drives, registries, printers, web browsers, applications, and more. Desktop Authority also enables you to quickly and easily configure and deploy each element to the appropriate subset of the organization.
Make it even easier to meet the current business needs of your users by combining configuration elements into profiles to represent groups of users and locations —even a disaster recovery configuration.
Target administrative privileges.
Privilege Manager helps your users be more productive by using a subset of Validation Logic criteria to target elevated administrative privileges for users and applications. This capability means you don’t have to create and maintain various overlapping security groups to target rules at the desired targets.
Maintain privileges no matter where users travel.
Ensure that your users have the correct elevation settings when they travel between offices with Validation Logic’s advanced targeting features, keeping your mobile users working and your network secure.
