What is the difference between Privilege Manager Editions?

I see that Privilege Manager 4.1 has a community edition. I am running the Pro version, but I was wondering if there is any document that points out the differences between the Community and Professional editions. I'd like to know what I can do with the Community edition.

  • Hi Kevin.

    With Privilege Manager Community you can collaborate, brainstorm new elevation rules, share rules with other users, and provide bug reports and enhancement requests to Quest Software.
    Privilege Manager Professional includes additional security, discovery, and reporting capabilities, as well as technical support from Quest Software.
  • The document that has the information about the PM versions is located HERE

    Privilege Manager is available in the following editions:

    • Privilege Manager Community: This edition is free and does not require a license. You can collaborate, brainstorm new elevation rules, share rules with other users, and provide bug reports and enhancement requests to Quest Software.

    • Privilege Manager Professional: This edition requires a paid license and includes additional security, discovery, and reporting capabilities, as well as technical support from Quest Software.

    • Privilege Manager Professional Evaluation: This edition is the free 30-day trial period for Privilege Manager Professional. If you do not buy a license after 30 days, the software will revert to the lesser-featured Community edition. You won't have the Professional features, but you can keep the Community edition just for trying Privilege Manager.

    NOTE: When reverting back to the Community edition, you will need to re-save all computer-based Group Policy object (GPO) rules as user-based. Computer-based rules will no longer work on the client-side once the trial expires.
