Launch of Microsoft AD Integration Toolkit

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada; FileHold Systems Inc, a developer of advanced document and record management software has announced release of an optional toolkit that allows Microsoft® Active Directory users to synchronize domain user and group objects with the FileHold user management subsystem.

The standard version of the document management software ships with a self contained user rights management system using Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM) technology. In smaller deployments ADAM gives Librarians and Administrators complete control over user rights management including access to folders and files in the document management library.

The newly released Integration Toolkit is designed for larger deployments where the customer already uses Microsoft Active Directory to manage user rights and does not want to have multiple management systems. Active Directory is a service that is included with Windows Server 2003 and Windows 2000 Server operating systems. Active Directory enables centralized, secure management of an entire network, which might span a building, a city, or multiple locations throughout the world. FileHold  user and role management can be easily and frequently synchronized with Active Directory.

Ian Booth, Vice President of Product Development said “The Toolkit also provides single sign-on authentication for FileHold users. Authentication is synchronized with Active Directory eliminating the need for users to manually enter their credentials to log into FileHold. This saves steps for users who have logged into their Windows accounts, have been authenticated against Active Directory and want to use the FileHold application. This toolkit has been very well received by IT departments who have deployed FileHold’06 across a broad user community”

An Independent technology consultant told us” FileHold is by far the best solution for this project. There is no other document management system that we researched (or tested) that is so tightly integrated with AD and MS Office.”
