Industry and government regulations require organizations to be vigilant about access to sensitive data. To comply with these regulations, organizations must demonstrate that only authorized individuals have access to sensitive documents or areas on the network where these documents reside.
File Reporter provides 6 different permissions reports.
- Assigned NCP Permissions: Outlines the assigned Micro Focus file system user rights and trustee assignments for all folders, subfolders, and files from a specified path
- Assigned NTFS Permissions: Indicates the assigned Microsoft file system user permissions for all folders, subfolders, and files from a specified path
- Permissions by Path: Indicates the effective rights and permissions (assigned or inherited) to the file system according to the paths you specify
- Permissions by Identity: Indicates the effective rights or permissions (assigned or inherited) to the file system according to the user objects you specify
- Historic NCP Permissions: Indicates which file system trustee rights have changed on a storage resource between two points in time
- Historic NTFS Permissions: Indicates which Microsoft file system permissions have changed on a storage resource between two points in time
During a security audit, these reports let you demonstrate:
- Which individuals have access to sensitive files on the network
- The exact files that a selected user can access
- Permissions assignments corrected from one point in time compared with another
Of course, you will want to know all of this information before a security audit. File Reporter can help you by generating permissions reports on a schedule that you establish. By viewing regularly scheduled permissions reports, you can learn of potential security risks early and take immediate measures to address them.
