Folder Permissions

Windows folder permissions and access reports

Folder management is absolutely important to protect the important files and documents 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 permissions to ensure security. The important 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 permissions on the folders.

With ADManager Plus' 'permissions for folders' report, which can be generated as well as exported automatically, administrators can check, analyze, and manage Windows folder/ file permissions and execute the appropriate measures to enhance NTFS folder security. The reports can be exported to CSV, Excel, HTML, PDF, and CSVDE formats.
