About PolicyPak and Products
Software to increase your standardization and security
Its hard to be a system administrator when you’re busy fighting fires all day. And we noticed lots of administrators struggle with their existing management tools to do (what appears) to make very simple security improvements. So PolicyPak was founded on three goals:
Don’t rip-and-replace something you already love and use.
Make your existing tools better and more effective.
During the 2007 TechEd, I attended a lecture by Jeremy on using Group Policy. One of the areas that he covered that I had never heard about was the Central Store Creator. This is a simple tool that allows you to manage ADMX and ADML files. Jeremy continues to provide information in areas that I have never heard about, which makes my job easier.

Thanks so much for [the summary of the Group Policy Preference Extensions]. I wish there was such document as a starting point to all the new stuff coming out every day. It sometimes is very hard to find out what a particular product really does or if you have to bother with it at all in the first place. With your summary I had no trouble seeing what Group Policy Preference Extensions is all about ? at one glance instead of crawling through kb articles, whitepapers, and stuff. Your help to the community is much appreciated! Keep up the good work, I’ll always be a frequent visitor to your site. Thanks and best regards from Switzerland.
Your Group Policy Preference Extensions overview document] was perfect for me. I appreciated the information and screen shots and think you are providing a great service in educating the IT community on Group Policy.

Jeremy, Thank you very much for the [Group Policy Preferences Extensions] summary [document.] At first glance, my network administrator, my IT Manger, and I were all in a state of awe. We had not heard anything about the preference extensions and your document presented them in a way that we immediately grasped their value. Each and every one of the preferences offers something that we as a small?town department have always wanted GP to do. My department is going to meet soon and go over the documents in greater detail but upon first glance I have to say kudos! Great job, as always!
I have seen Jeremy several times at TechMentor and he always explains things extremely well. He is also open to questions and that is always a great thing, as well.

[I]understand GPOs better and that makes them more useable in the grand scheme of things.

After hearing Jeremy speak, I was immediately able to understand the process of how Group Policy should be used at different levels with AD and to set up multiple policies with inheriting and nforcement properly applied. Upon reading his book, I have been able to setup policies for my users to map default printers, login scripts, and set in place a security structure to assist with securing network devices.

I saw Jeremy last year in San Diego, CA. I learned some pretty cool things about GP that I didn’t know before. Since then I’ve purchased one of his books and read the newsletter. I now use GP all the time.
