“Advanced administration, of both cloud and on-prem environments, can now be done via script rather than manually via a GUI. This means standards and processes can be followed exactly and are less prone to human error, which can in turn lead to more secure, stable and more dynamic environments,” said Darren James, cybersecurity expert at Specops Software.
