Folders store files or subfolders. Administrators store important documents and files in folders. This makes folder management absolutely important to protect the folders from unauthorized access and hence maintain NTFS folder security. Management of folders, especially through conventional means like native tools, PowerShell scripts, etc., is a cumbersome process as it requires regular monitoring of the NTFS file system permissions to ensure security. The vital folders must be made non-inheritable to avoid any breach to the files. To make this possible, it is very important to monitor the windows NTFS file permissions on the folders.
Monitoring or generating reports on the folder permissions using only the native AD tools, PowerShell scripts, etc. can be a quite a nightmarish experience. But with ADManager Plus, the web-based Active Directory management and reporting tool's 'permissions for folders' report which can even be generated as well as exported automatically, administrators can analyze and manage Windows folder/file permissions and execute the appropriate measures to enhance NTFS folder security.
ADManager Plus generates NTFS folder permissions report for Active Directory users/ groups on folders. NTFS Permissions for Folders report lists all Users/Groups that have access permissions on 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. This File and Directory permission report can also be used as NTFS permissions analyzer for folders to ensure that the right access has been given to the folders. Thus, administrators can easily secure their folders by monitoring these NTFS security permissions on the folders.

It is extremely important for administrators to protect the inheritable permissions associated with vital folders and directories. ADManager Plus generates NTFS reports on non-inheritable folders which lists the folders and files protected from inheritable permissions. With this Windows NTFS Security Report, an administrator can keep track of vital folders or directories and ensure that security is not compromised due to inheritance. This serves as windows file permissions tool as it helps in analyzing the inheritance permissions of folders and hence contributing to the security.

"We evaluated ADManager Plus along with several other Active Directory Management and Reporting software. After using it really made life easy for administrators. It is very understandable and fast to learn, I didn't even read the manual."
