Group Policy (GP)

Definition - What does Group Policy (GP) mean?

Group Policy (GP) is a tool in Microsoft Windows NT networking systems for controlling user status and activities on a particular network’s computers. Through the Active Directory, Group Policy applications set standards for different types of user events and user settings.

Techopedia explains Group Policy (GP)

Part of the task of setting Group Policy involves relaying that policy to individual computers or network components. This is done through a system of policy refreshes that distribute Group Policy across a network. Different types of Group Policy include local Group Policy, site-wide Group Policy, Group Policy applied to a domain, and Group Policy applied to an organizational unit.
