Active Directory maintenance
Without knowing it you may have a problem that gets bigger every day: Your Active Directory structure full of obsolete computer and user objects.
After deploying Active Directory, most organizations have an ongoing and growing problem tracking outdated user and computer accounts that no longer correspond to actual physical users or computers.
With Specops Active Directory Janitor you can search the entire network to easily identify these accounts. You can then decide, from a number of criteria's, which ones that are outdated and finally delete, disable and/or move them.
The result is an up to date and accurate list of Active Directory resources on an ongoing basis. You will also maintain your Active Directory security level since high security risk accounts will be listed.
How do you solve your cleaning problems today? How much of your time does it take, and how do you value your time?
Time wasted using manual, inefficient, and insecure methods to maintain an accurate AD resource list exceeds the nominal cost of Specops Active Directory Janitor.
Benoit Lecours, Ubisoft, QC, Canada:
“We cannot live without it. We use it all the time for our AD clean up”
Anthony Pochmara, IT Specialist, Constellation Brands, USA :
"Constallation Brands is the biggest Wine Company in the world. This will help our Help Desk easily scan and remove old computer accounts."
Michael Amaral, IT Specialist, Boston Financial Data Services, USA:
"Currently have to iterate through DCs manually and compile spreadsheets for comparison. The ADJ does all of this and more. A similar tool for USER objects would be smashing!"

Mathew Shember, IT Specialist, Synplicity Inc, USA:
"A real clean way to cleanup dead accounts. Junior Admins won't have to remember to visit each controller and review DNS."
Delmonik Dontee, IT Specialist, US Department of Transportation:
"Active Directory Janitor works extremely well. With our dynamic, ever changing network old machine accounts have been the bane of my existence. The product runs 100 times faster than a script and generates easy to interpret reports."
Russell Morgan, IT Specialist, BASF IT Services:
"AD Janitor is indeed a rare product. It works without complicated infrastructure or setup and is sensibly priced. Why can't more AD tools adopt this model?"
Bill Bradley, Chief, Customer Support Section, Department of Veterans Affairs, Denver VA Medical Center:
"We use it every week to remove older machines, and, are VERY happy with it! Thanks for such a superb product!"
Bob D'Spain, Enterprise Systems, Sandia National Laboratories:
"The Active Directory Janitor has become a valuable tool for our organization. Not only the primary tool for maintaining the default Computers OU machine list, but we also have recommended the use of this tool for our down-level OU administrators to manage the membership of their OU's. This tool allows us to scan and sort by any number of fields to include the last logon date. As machines leave or get left off the domain for extended periods, we can disable of delete accordingly to assist with security and licensing. A machine that has not been on a domain for extended periods are most likely not current with patches and\or virus definitions. We can now identify and take actions on these machines quickly. Once the domain controller list was custom edited for onsite only, feed back from down-level OU administrators has been 100% favorable."
