EnhancedAD transforms the way in which Macs work on Windows Active Directory (AD) and Mac Open Directory (OD) networks, removing may of the performance, permissions and reliability issues that impact so many of these solutions.
With EnhancedAD users have fully managed Network Home folders as their default saving location. Storing work in the right place is simple and users have reliable access to all their work from any Mac on the network.
Networked User Home Folders
With EnhancedAD users have a fully managed Network Home folder as their default saving location. Storing work in the right place is simple and users have access to all their work from any Mac on the network.
Other Active Directory integration solutions only allow Local or Shared Windows Homes. Local Homes are undesirable for mobility reasons, but more importantly they present serious data security and backup issues.
Sharing of Windows Homes on the other hand prevents the use of most professional media applications1. Institutions that seek to use this configuration also tend to experience frequent file permission and performance issues.
With users files saved by default to a network home folder rather than saved locally, they can be kept secure and backed up reliably. Robust Backup protocols such as the often recommended 3-2-1 strategy can now be deployed.
3-2-1 Backup Strategy
3 – copies of your data
2 – which are local
1 – copy offsite
