    AUP Policy Enforcement

    Hi,

    Currently, we are looking at potential improvements to our AUP enforcement. We have read a lot about AUP Informant however, there seems to be no viable download for this software. Firstly, does anyone know if there is a download out there?

    Secondly, does anyone know of any other software that would enforce AUP's by checking a database of signed AUP's against Active Directory users and refusing login if there is no signed AUP for that user?

    Any info would be much appreciated?

    Many Thanks

    We use some software that Syncs AD accounts with SIMS. So new accounts are create automatically and disabled automatically etc. You can set it to disable the accounts until the AUP box in SIMS is checked.

    What's it called? I'm looking for a dynamic link between SIMS and AD for user account creation.

    What software tools are people using?

    I know about SalamandaSoft, but am looking to compare it with others

    Cheers Rob

    We used it at my last place for a good few years. We got it from www.paulbeesley.com but that website seems to be offline currently. Paul stopped development on the software about 2 years ago.
    It was and still is a good (free) AUP collector

    I know what you mean but when money is tight....

    We have an in house VB script that does all of our syncing so £1000 a year is money that can be spent elsewhere (currently on broken LCDs it seems with our staff throwing laptops around lol)

    Must depend on how much the school values IT. Current we are not doing that bad. They are a little tight on buying new hardware as it will all be replaced this year.

    @fiza,

    That's the software we want to get hold of, do you have an installer by any chance? I've emailed and messaged Paul Beesley but no reply as of yet.

    Many Thanks
