ServerMigrator 2007 Enables Data Migration to NAS Filers While Maintaining Security Permissions and User Access.

Ottawa, Canada – Dec 1, 2007 -- Winzero Technologies, a leading developer of Microsoft Windows management software, today announced ServerMigrator 2007 version 5.08 with support for network attached storage devices (NAS), enabling enterprises to easily migrate Windows data or convert local access to Network Attached Storage Devices, filers and SANs while maintaining security permissions and online user access.

With the growing need to store and retrieve massive amounts of data, IT departments have been turning to large specialized storage systems. ServerMigrator 2007 makes it easy to migrating data from many sources and consolidate data storage without time-consuming and technically cumbersome processes.

"ServerMigrator 2007 automates the task of consolidating servers or just migrating data between servers without losing permissions or taking data off-line. Since its release last year, customers have been asking for a version that specifically allows them to move data to Network Attached Storage Device Filers," said Sam Alderson, Winzero director of gobal sales. "Today, we are pleased to announce ServerMigrator 2007 v5.08 which addresses this need and is a result of custom development by Winzero for GlaxoSmithKline and the County of San Diego."

"Customers deploying NAS storage solutions will benefit greatly from the improved data availability and automated preservation of security settings that ServerMigrator 2007 offers," said Diane Merasty, senior director of product research at Winzero. "By combining customer requests and Winzero development efforts, we now provide a solution to our customers that make data consolidation painless with decreased network costs."

New ServerMigrator 2007 features allow administrators to:
- Migrate data to Network Attached Storage Devices;
- Grant users normal access to information throughout the process;
- Maintain data security permissions throughout the migration;
- Convert local NAS accounts to domain accounts;
- Ensure that the migration is transparent to end users.

Are Your Windows Servers Secure? Prove It!

Ottawa, ON. Canada, Nov 20, 2007 Winzero® (, a leader in network administration software for Microsoft® Windows®-based networks, today announced the availability of AccessReporter, an agent-less, fast, comprehensive discovery and reporting solution for analyzing Windows Server NTFS folder security, share permissions and tracking changes over time.

IT professionals know their IT environment is safe, but can they prove it when auditors or CIOs demand documentation? Now, with AccessReporter, they can instantly view NTFS and share security configurations of Windows servers, create and distribute security and security changes reports automatically, centrally audit security settings across multiple servers and boost confidence of suspicious auditors and nervous CIOs.

AccessReporter features an enhanced user interface and a new collection engine to maximize performance when executing large server security reporting jobs, and provides IT administrators with the ability to save reports for future comparison. AccessReporter's reporting process simplifies and shortens server security reporting projects, providing the fastest security settings collection and reporting performance available on the market. In addition, AccessReporter provides IT administrators with a granular level of control by reporting only what they need to know from multiple servers in multiple domains.

"AccessReporter will save significant time without compromising security for our customers such as VISA and British Petroleum (BP) by allowing division managers to only report security settings for what they are responsible for." said JP Hann, Director of Marketing. "When a division manager in a large financial institute needed to report data security for his division without access to the core servers, AccessReporter allowed him to report both directory and share permissions in a presentable format and track what security settings have changed since the last report.”

By providing on-demand reporting capabilities, IT managers using AccessReporter can assess their environment, track system changes over time and identify security weaknesses or prove that the environment is safe and secure.

"Window’s ACL-based security model is powerful, but because it's so extensive, it can be difficult to manage," said Akos Sandor, senior vice president of Microsoft Development at Winzero."By adding AccessReporter to our award-winning solutions, we're helping IT professionals get the most out of Window’s sophisticated security capabilities creating a more secure enterprise. AccessReporter will be especially well-received by industries - such as government, financial services, health care, and defense – that are highly sensitive to security concerns and need to keep their file server security up-to-date.”

Pricing and Availability
AccessReporter is available immediately and is enterprise licensed without per user or per server licensing. AccessReporter is available through Winzero and Winzero's global network of resellers. A free evaluation copy of AccessReporter is available at:
