Enterprise Permission Reporter 3.5


Welcome to our NTFS permissions reporting solution. EPR will assist you to meet all challenges you may face regarding regulatory compliances such as HIPAA, FDA, PCI or SOX.

EPR lets you control, document and review all your file system permissions with ease.

Enterprise Permission Reporter answers these critical questions in real-time:

  • Who has which file / folder access permissions?
  • What changes are being made to file / folder access permissions?
  • Who has which access permissions to Active Directory objects?
  • What changes are being made to Active Directory access permissions?
  • Which accounts being added or removed to/from my critical security groups?

Why would I need EPR?

•    If a user leaves your company, only every third will loose all the permissions
•    Permissions have the most direct impact to your users
•    Near half of all helpdesk calls regard the request of permissions
•    Auditing: You need to report permissions, even for dates long ago
•    Auditing: You need to report changes of permissions

EPR does all of that, and much more.

Here are some of the most important Features EPR offers you:

  • Automatically report permission changes via email directly to the data owner
  • Change management: Keep track of changes, all the time
  • Dive deep permissions: EPR will not just stop when reading the permissions. It will resolve any group members, even sub-groups, and sub-groups, until there are only users
  • Role-Based views
    • EPR offers 3 pre-filtered views per Report, one for each of the most common roles
      • Functional Application Manager
        • This view will show only End-Users. All groups will be resolved, but groups themselves will not show up.
      • System Manager
        • This view will show only Direct Assignments. All entries found in folders ACL will be shown, but nothing resolved from AD.
      • Technical Application Manager
        • This view will show everything. All groups and users will be resolved and displayed in the most detail.
  • Each Report, even after you filtered it the way you want, can be exported to Excel-Friendly CSV files.
