You can use it to instantly find out which Active Directory accounts are locked out, disabled, expired, have no passwords etc.

Gold Finger can be instantly deployed on any domain-joined machine and offers over 200 security reports covering Account, Group, Computer, GPO, Container, OU, Exchange and AD ACL Management.

We've been using it for the past three weeks now and it has been immensely useful. It also has an inbuilt search that outdoes most search tools out there. The best part is that it's 100% supported, so if we ever have a problem, we can get FREE support for it.

If you're into AD reporting, this is a very useful tool to have in your toolset.

Best wishes,
