Active Directory Security Group


Active Directory security groups can be created to manage or assign permissions to group
resources such as: 
  • Printer, Scanner
  • Shared network drive
  • FAX
  • Workstations
  • Applications

Security Groups allow you to manage user and computer access to these shared resources. This simplifies administration by allowing you to set permissions once on a resource, then change the membership of the group as your needs change.
