Access Rights

Effective Rights on File System & Directory Objects

Expert Insight on Windows Access Rights
Access Rights Inspector calculates permissions across file system and directory objects to provide effective rights reports. This essentially answers the question Who has access to what?

Directory and File System rights are complicated to capture. Actual permissions are often granted or denied based on a combination of explicitly assigned rights, group memberships, inherited rights, network share permissions, object ownership, denied permissions, and more.

NetVision's Access Rights Inspector provides detailed answers on access rights across Active Directory and Windows file system environments. Reports can then be scheduled and emailed to business managers and auditors.

Access Rights Inspector provides complete answers on user access rights for both the Windows File System and Active Directory. It provides reports on where rights have been explicitly assigned and also analyzes all rights assignments to give you the calculated result of all contributing access rights, including nested groups, inherited rights, object ownership, and share permissions.
