Joesoftware announces a significant improvement to Active Directory Manager Windows Authentication. The new version of AD Manager eliminates the ActiveX technology, which relied on Windows operating systems and limited the use of the solution. Just like Penny, the new AD Manager is compatible with all major browsers including Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
The greatest benefit is that the new AD Manager can be used for both intranet and the internet, without any customizations or IIS setting changes. This means that intranet users will be automatically signed in, while internet (or intranet on a different domain) users will be prompted to enter Windows credentials.
If your company is currently an AD Manager user with current annual enhancement, you are eligible to receive the new software as part of your annual enhancement plan. And if you don’t have AD Manager and would like to benefit from the improved password efficiency it offers, there has never been a better time to consider it. Either way, contact us and we will arrange your upgrade or answer your questions on adding AD Manager with your Penny or Spencer solution.
