Modern operating systems enable employees to access data and documents in a variety of ways, no matter where they are.

But do you know who can access a specific folder or Windows share?

Not having a clear understanding about the people who can access your sensitive data may give you uneasy sleep at night.

For this reason, we have developed FolderSecurityViewer.

Our tool can analyze NTFS permissions of specific folders to give you an overview of the following security settings:

  • Active Directory users and groups that can access your data
  • Detailed NTFS permissions of the current folder
  • Differences in NTFS permissions between the current folder and its lower folder hierarchy
After analyzing the NTFS permissions you will get a nice formatted NTFS permissions report in Microsoft Excel or HTML.
