NTFS Permissions Report Tool

The NTFS Permissions report tool is designed to scan Windows shared folders and provide an easy-to-read report of folder permissions. Securing shared folders is critical to ensure your data is not accessed by unauthorized individuals or bad actors. With the NTFS Permissions Tool, you can quickly filter and find insecure folder permissions. Filter by Directory Rights and you can quickly find accounts that have Full Control, Create Files, Modify access, and more. In addition, use the account column to limit the results to specific accounts.
