Pervedia has released Permission Analyzer, a powerful Windows administration tool that lets you quickly determine whether your 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 provides and overview of the access rights of each user or user group. With this information, administrators can effectively manage the computer network access rights within the entire organization.
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, administrators can change the access rights to any folder, by opening the folder and making the changes with Windows.
Permission Analyzer´s user details report lets administrators prevent non-active users from exercising inappropriate access. This overview of all network users shows the last log-in time for each user, whether a user has been blocked, and if a user´s password never expires. This report provides the tool needed to analyze any individual´s network permissions activity.
The program´s installed software report tells which applications are installed on each workstation. By using simple filtering, you can see all workstations that have a particular application installed on them, or you can view all applications installed on a particular workstation. This report shows the application, version, and publisher name, and helps you manage copyright compliance and upgrades.
In addition to adding a layer of security to network administration, Permission Analyzer reduces the workload of key personnel. Network administrators spend a lot of time investigating permissions, granting new users access rights to the network, and terminating access rights when people leave the organization. Permission Analyzer provides the essential information needed to streamline these processes. In addition, the cost of managing employee access rights takes up a large portion of an internal helpdesk´s budget. By providing helpdesk personnel with Permission Analyzer, support costs go down.
Permission Analyzer v. 1.2.8 requires a server running Windows 2000/XP/2003, clients running Windows 98/Me/2000/XP/2003, and an Internet connection. A single-user license costs $99(US).
