Quest Authentication Services’ (formerly Vintela Authentication Services) enterprise Group Policy architecture provides an MMC snapin to the Windows Group Policy Object Editor (GPOE). Its powerful design uses innovative client-side extensions (CSE) to translate settings and apply them to local non-Windows machines for both user and computer policies. Authentication Services provides a number of valuable and powerful Group Policies as well as customizable capabilities that allow for powerful extension of policy-based management to Unix, Linux, and Mac.
Achieve maximum benefits through full support of ADM template-style Group Policy as well as enhanced Group Policy extensions for Unix, Linux and Mac policies. These benefits include:

Achieve a higher level of control and increased safety when managing Group Policy through integration with Quest’s Group Policy Manager , which provides GPO version control, off-line editing, testing prior to deployment, approval, and roll-back for Windows Group Policy. Because Unix, Linux, and Mac systems participate as “full citizens” in Active Directory through Authentication Services, the management functionality of Group Policy Manager seamlessly extends to all Group Policies and Group Policy functionality available to non-Windows systems through Authentication Services.
Authentication Services Managed Client Extensions for Group Policy provides powerful, intuitive and extensive Group Policy functionality for all Mac Workgroup Manager Policies and preferences with no need for additional directories, identities, or schema extensions.
