Identify direct permissions

Background / Value

Direct access rights should be avoided at all costs and be replaced by group access rights. Firstly, direct access rights are inefficient because every user has to be managed independently. Secondly, each directory needs to be examined individually to ensure the removal of all direct permissions. 8MAN shows you all direct permissions on your file server(s) in one simple report.


8MAN strictly adheres to Microsoft Best Practice and assigns a group for every access right.
