NTFS Permission

NTFS permissions reporter for Windows file servers and NetApp servers

Manage NTFS permissions on the fly from ADManager Plus' reporting utility

Network administrators manage and maintain NTFS share and folder permissions viz. access control lists (ACL), permission inheritance and audits for file level security. They face a huge challenge over the security of their computers in the face of constantly evolving threats. Companies need to be aware of attacks by malicious or unauthorized access to NTFS partitions which could lead to corruption, misallocation or loss of files in the system. For this, they need to have a complete visibility of access permissions, their inheritance and other parameters, as well as be able to drill down to details. Besides the complexity of this task, the difficulty in using native AD tools and writing PowerShell scripts to query Active Directory, adds to administrators' woes.

ADManager Plus generates and also exports reports on access permissions of all NTFS folders as well as files and their properties for Windows file servers and NetApp servers in an easily understandable format. This helps administrators quickly view and analyze file-level security settings in their environments. The export option lets you export the reports to excel, CSV, HTML, PDF, and CSVDE formats.

Reports on NTFS permissions

Share and folder permissions reports

  • Shares in Servers report - Displays all the Shares available in the specified servers, along with important details such as their location, the list of accounts (security principals) who have permissions on the shares as well as their associated permissions, and the scope (folder, sub-folder, etc.) of the permissions.
  • Folders accessible by accounts report - Gets the folders and files over which the specified accounts have permissions. You can check for folders in a specified path and further define the level of access (full control or any control) to generate the results.

Folder permissions and access reports

  • Permissions for folders report - Generates a list of the users/ groups that have access to folders in a specified path. The associated access control entries clearly indicate the level of access a user/ group has on a folder and also specifies the inheritable permissions, if any.
  • Non-inheritable folders report - Lists the folders and files protected from inheritable permissions. You just have to specify the path and a list of all folders and files that are restricted to inherit the permissions from their parent objects will be generated.

Furthermore, ADManager Plus offers NTFS permissions management features as well. Besides generating reports on NTFS permissions, the tool offers other 150+ predefined reports on Active Directory, Exchange, Office 365, and Google Workspace. Not only this, it offers a plethora of other features to simplify IT management. Get a free download of this software's trial version!
