Why Use Groups in Active Directory?

Defining groups with common privileges and rights is often easier than specifying rights and privileges for each user. Active Directory supports two basic types of groups: distribution groups and security groups.

Distribution groups are used for email distribution. Any email addressed to a distribution group is automatically sent to every member of the group.

Security groups are used to assign rights and permissions to a group of employees. Security groups are often set up to mirror organizational units. A security group for Finance department employees, for example, could be given access privileges to financial information not available to the rest of the workforce. A security group of software developers would have access right to the development and testing environments.

Rather than assigning rights and privileges to each employee in these roles, the sysadmin merely needs to add and delete group members as employees join and leave the various teams.
