Assess permission hygiene

  • Spot vulnerable files such as those owned by stale, disabled, deleted, and other inactive user accounts.
  • List file shares, report share permissions, and track who has what level of access to a shared folder to enable better file share management.
  • Get effective permissions reports delivered to your mailbox, and continuously verify that the principle of least privilege is maintained in your enterprise.
  • Avoid compliance penalties by verifying that sensitive and business-critical files can only be accessed by users with legitimate needs.
  • Identify broken permission inheritance and other instances of permission inconsistencies that allow users access to data they don't need access to.

Identify overexposed files

  • Define what permissions are excessive in your environment to receive tailored reports that help administrators identify overexposed files easily.
  • Locate file security risks such as users who have full control access to a file that they do not own or files that are accessible to every employee.
  • Identify files owned by former employees, analyze whether they are still relevant to your business, and use the information to reclaim or purge them as necessary.
  • Spot violations of your organization's file security policy, such as files allowing unrestricted access to a user or group.
