Avecto, the leader in Windows Privilege Management, today announced it is hosting a series of Active Directory and Group Policy webinars, featuring highly acclaimed Windows author, Jeremy Moskowitz - MVP (Group Policy).

"As those who have read Jeremy's books or attended his training courses will tell you, 'when it comes to Group Policy, no one teaches it better than Jeremy" says Paul Kenyon, COO at Avecto. "Group Policy touches every single server, desktop and laptop, as such the more people know about it, the easier it is for them to leverage its power. Our award winning Privilege Guard solution is tightly integrated with Windows Group Policy, and we believe there will be some great take-aways for those who attend these sessions."

Moskowitz is one of less than a dozen Microsoft MVPs in Group Policy and has performed Active Directory and Group Policy planning and implementations for some of the world's largest organizations. As Chief Propeller-Head for Moskowitz Inc, and GPanswers.com, he regularly delivers highly successful training sessions on Group Policy. GPanswers.com was ranked as one of "The 20 most useful Microsoft sites for IT professionals" by ComputerWorld magazine.

"Since Active Directory and Group Policy is deployed into almost every organization, it's still surprising what IT administrators know and don't know about the tool they use every day. I'm sure everyone attending will get something to take away from my talks - from seasoned administrators to those just getting warmed up or converting from a previous technology." says Jeremy.

The webinar series begins on the 7th of September 2011 with the first presentation titled 'Understanding Active Directory', followed by 'Group Policy Nuts and Bolts' in November and 'Leveraging the Power of Group Policy' in January 2012.

Jeremy's latest book is Group Policy Fundamentals, Security, and the Managed Desktop (WILEY, 2010) and signed copies are available at www.GPanswers.com .
