ADmitMac v3 due next month
today announced that ADmitMac v3 is now in beta and is expected to ship in mid-August. ADmitMac offers secure and complete integration of Macs into Microsoft Active Directory environments. ADmitMac v3, which was delayed by critical bugs in Mac OS 10.4 (since corrected in v10.4.2), offers full support for Microsoft NTFS file system, allowing for storage of Mac files with multiple forks in a single file; it also delivers support for secure protocols, including NTLMv2 and SMB signing for connecting to Windows Server 2003 without downgrading the server security. Version 3 also brings complete support for Microsoft's Distributed File System (not currently available with Tiger) and includes both Mac/PC utilities for managing desktop settings. ADmitMac v3 also includes deployment tools for support of large and complex site installation. Pricing starts at $120 with free upgrades for purchases after April 1, 2005.
