Accomplish more with less of your time and every dollar of your investment. Here is a summary of what you can do with this product solution: Report NTFS permissions across servers and workstations in multiple domains, including Files, Folders and Shares. View permissions using different dimensions. Given a set of users and groups, determine which folders and files do they have access to. Determine which users and groups may indirectly impact NTFS permissions based on their group memberships (to analyze impact of inherited permissions). Report Effective Permissions of groups and users on shares, folders and files - permissions that have been explicitly set and those that have been inherited through groups and nested groups. Report local groups and their users of individual workstations in your windows network to analyze and plug security holes, because local groups can contain user accounts or global group accounts from multiple domains.
