Permission Analyzer scans your network and combines NTFS permissions with user and group data from the Active Directory. All data that is stored locally can be retrieved to create overviews of permissions per group or user.
Description: Permission Analyzer scans your network and combines NTFS permissions with user and group data from the Active Directory. All data that is stored locally can be retrieved to create overviews of permissions per group or user. You will be able to monitor permissions for entire user groups and receive notifications if undesired permissions are flagged within your network.
Scanning the network
Configure the directories and LDAP Organizational Units to scan. All directory information and group memberships from LDAP are saved in a local database file. Run the scan whenever you like or schedule an automated scan. Permission Analyzer supports an external database, allowing multiple workstations to share the same information source.
Running your overviews
All information is saved on a database, allowing you to conduct targeted search queries in seconds, instead of scanning the whole network every time you want to apply a new filter. Add filters for specific members, all members of a group or LDAP OU, permissions or folders.
The main overview provides an aggregated summary of all permissions found and may contain the permissions of multiple users or groups. The Trace function is part of the overview and shows you the origin of permissions for a specific user or group and folder (via the group membership or parent folder they have been inherited). Use this view to zoom in on your search results.
Creating reports and policies
Save your filters as report and export them to HTML or CSV and e-mail. Use Permission Analyzer to run reports automatically using command-line parameters. Save your filters as policies and receive e-mail notifications if your policy report contains unwanted permissions.
Change Info: Better support for very large data sets, define policies and get notified by e-mail in case unwanted permissions are found in your network, better support for special permissions, scan specific OUs in the AD to scan, select multiple members, modify permissions and schedule reports.
