Key new features:


  • Claims-based access rules Quest One ActiveRoles offers dynamic authorization rules to allow or deny access to Active Directory objects depending on the attributes of the identity attempting to access those objects. Built on the concept of Dynamic Access Control (DAC), this feature enables Quest One ActiveRoles to recognize and evaluate the Windows claims of the identity that requests access to Active Directory objects, such as users, groups or computers.


  • Exchange recipient management improvements The Exchange recipient management options of the product have been extended to support archive mailboxes; mailbox calendar settings; assignment of retention, address book, Exchange ActiveSync, sharing, and role assignment mailbox policies; and message moderation settings for distribution groups.


  • Support for Exchange 2013 Quest One ActiveRoles helps you streamline and secure administration of Exchange 2013 through the use of role-based delegation, policy-based administration, flexible administrative views, and comprehensive console and Web- based interfaces to perform Exchange recipient management tasks.


  • Management of published certificates You can use Quest One ActiveRoles to add or remove digital (X.509) certificates from user accounts in Active Directory. By adding a certificate to a user account you make the certificate (including the public key) available to other Active Directory users and to Active Directory-aware applications and services.


  • Management of group Managed Service Accounts Quest One ActiveRoles allows you to administer group Managed Service Accounts (gMSA)—domain security principals whose password is managed by domain controllers and can be retrieved by multiple systems. You can create, modify or delete gMSA, and delegate administration of gMSA.


  • Search for BitLocker recovery passwords Quest One ActiveRoles allows you to locate and view BitLocker recovery passwords that are stored in Active Directory. This option helps to recover data on a drive that has been encrypted by using BitLocker.


  • Product usage statistics Quest One ActiveRoles provides a predefined collection of statistics that helps you understand how many Active Directory domain users and AD LDS users are managed by this product over time. By analyzing this statistical data, you can establish a baseline of product usage, verify your current Quest One ActiveRoles licensing compliance, and plan for future licensing needs.
