migRaven.one for Windows
migRaven.one is probably the only tool available…
that enables you to redesign complex fileserver folder structures and assign completely new permissions in accordance with Microsoft best practices. It makes no difference wether you are dealing with a few hundred or many thousands of permission endpoints (directories with explicit permissions).
A migRaven.one project basically has three different phases: First the system is scanned and analyzed. Next, the permissions can be redesigned and validated in the sandbox before, finally, they are deployed to a new location.
– Extremely flexible – migRaven.one Redesign Project –
migRaven.one Redesign Edition is right for you, if in addition to resetting user permissions on your windows-based systems, you also intend to migrate, and possibly restructure the fileserver…
– Extremely fast: migRaven.one GPO Project –
migRaven.one can be particularly useful to you if you’re planning on creating new permissions without restructuring the file server itself. The migRaven.one GPO (Group Policy Object) Edition uses an extremly fast approach that allows migRaven.one to enroll permissions for millions of files with hundreds of permission end points not in days, but usually in less than one hour.
During initialization, migRaven.one conducts a search for available domains. User-selected domains and the associated Active Directories are then scanned. Hereby all users, groups, and any relationships between the two, are scanned and then stored in the migRaven.one graph oriented database (Graph Databases are particularly well-suited for this task). Thereafter, the structure of the targeted resource (directory structure and associated ACLs) are scanned or can be imported from a table.
Redesign of the permissions sructure can then take place in the sandbox, using either drag & drop or table import, without affecting the production system. In the sandbox, all modifications and their results are simulated by the database and no actual changes are made to the production system. After successful validation of the changes, the newly designed structure can be deployed to a target-share that should be different from the share you are actually working with. That results in a completely new structured share with new permissions you can copy your data to (best using copy-script) and when done swich to the production system.
End your authorisation chaos
migRaven.one 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.
Whether only a single directory should be converted or the whole file server should be migrated: there are always changes that have to be managed. With migRaven, you can easily create a parallel folder structure that is automatically populated with correct access rights and corresponding data.
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 migRaven.one 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.
Establishing a Distributed File System and making similar changes to file services often require complicated adjustments to directories and access rights. Using migRaven, you can easily relocate your structures and manage all the necessary changes to access rights via Drag & Drop.
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 migRaven.one of which can greatly simplify integration.
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. migRaven.one can identify and transfer all direct permissions in consistent group affiliations.
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. migRaven.one can reduce the complexity of your directory tree while ensuring properly set NTFS permissions.
