Permission Analyzer for Microsft Windows released
Perdemia has released Permission Analyzer 1.4.4, a powerful Windows administration tool that quickly determines whether the system access permissions are properly set, need to be changed, or have been altered by people who are not authorized to make changes. Since most security breaches and fraud are initiated from within organizations, Permission Analyzer affords a significant level of protection against permissions-based security threats.
Permission Analyzer can generate a clear overview of the access rights of each user or user group. With this information, it is possible to effectively manage the computer network access rights within the entire organization. Scans can be initiated manually, or scheduled to run regularly. It’s easy to specify the directories to be scanned, and to limit the number of subdirectories that will be scanned. In addition to reading the reports online, they can be exported to HTML to make them readable with a browser.
Permission Analyzer provides an analysis of access rights per user group. It’s easy to set a permission filter, and only look for list, read, execute, modify, write, or full permissions. Based on the program’s analysis, changes on the access rights to any folder can be made by opening the folder and making the changes with Windows.
Permission Analyzer v. 1.4.4 requires a server running Windows 2000/XP/2003, clients running Windows 98/Me/2000/XP/2003, and an Internet connection. One license costs $149(US) and makes it possible to scan all servers, all users, all permissions and all workstations in the network.
