Visualizing NTFS permissions


View your situation to understand it!

Understanding the current situation is the prerequisite for an efficient processing of the NTFS permissions. provides you with an overview of your permission situation, answers targeted questions about the permissions of individual users or directories and creates the basis for further action.

There is no uniform information base under Microsoft. One can neither see in the active directory where users or groups are valid, nor can one see in the directory level who has the actual rights on the available ACEs in the resource. collects information from the active directory and the file system in a database and is able to display this consolidated information. Thus, you can see which effective (!) permissions are really assigned to a directory.

Incorrect permissions are immediately detected. The cases in which only 5 accounts should have permissions, but actually 500 do, are a thing of the past. Moreover, you can immediately see which accounts are actually affected. (Also, “everyone” and “authenticated users” are immediately listed in this view.)


  • Clean up NTFS permissions

    End your authorisation chaos identifies inconsitent NTFS-permissions and transfers them, in accordance with the administrator's specifications, into a new, clean permission structure. Permission groups, including tedious list permissions, are automatically built in migRaven´s Sandbox without causing any downtime to the production system.

  • Introduction of 8MAN

    From Installation to Integration

    Installation of 8MAN Access Rights Management is easily done. But if one wants to work with it efficiently, the existing, often historically evolved, directory and authorization structure must first be reorganized. Because can make 8MAN compatable conversions of even the largest of structures (and in the shortest of times) it has become the official integration tool for 8MAN.

  • Introducing an IDM-system

    Clear permissions from the first day

    IDM & rights management systems often provide sophisticated workflows that can greatly simplify authorization assignment and involve them data owners. In order to establish these processes, however, the system must be based on the existing access rights. Fits to this previously with of which can greatly simplify integration.

  • Remove direct access rights

    Find and replace them fully automatically

    Direct permissions on NTFS-file servers undermine the approach, to depict access rights with groups. The overview is lost, the administration and revocation of the access rights are hardly to be managed. can identify and transfer all direct permissions in consistent group affiliations.

  • Revise your directory structures

    Data, data and even more data

    If the file services are not structured clearly, employees quickly create their own, parallel directories. At this point, the amount of data can multiply itself in the shortest time, making it hard for the user to work efficiently. can reduce the complexity of your directory tree while ensuring properly set NTFS permissions. development GmbH / / Tel: +49 (30) 8095010-40 / about us / terms / imprint
