Reviews of Security Explorer in Windows Server System Magazine

Controlling access rights is a full-time job for some administrators. There's always something to do: create a file share here, a new folder there, manage registry settings for one user, add a new user to a folder, rename user accounts, and so on. When you're working only with the default Windows tools, you have to use a series of Microsoft Management Consoles (MMCs) to get the job done right. Not so with ScriptLogic's Security Explorer 4.8. Explorer gives you a one-stop shop for all permissions management in organizations of any size. Whether you have one or 1,000 servers, Security Explorer will let you view and modify permissions on files, folders, registry settings, and file shares using a single, easy-access interface.

This tool is especially useful when working with user home directories or redirected folders. One issue administrators face today is that with Windows NT or Windows 2000, you must modify the default permissions that are assigned to automatically created user folders?for example, when using the %username% variable for the generation of user home folders. To do this, you might use the cacls or the xcacls commands, running the following command at the root of the shared folder structure you design to store user shares, for example:

cacls *.* /t /e /c /g administrators:f

This command uses /t to modify all subdirectories, /e to edit and not replace permissions, /c to ignore all errors, and /g to grant the administrators group full permissions on all file objects. This way you can see and work with the contents of user shares without taking away their own rights. Of course, this command is no longer necessary in Windows Server 2003 because it automatically grants the administrators group these rights when it generates a private home folder for users. But, if you're still working with NT or Windows 2000, you need this command. Not so if you use Security Explorer. Explorer includes a handy little capability to use the Backup Operators' right to backup files to let you manage these permissions without having to change their access rights.

Security Explorer Reviews

Anyone who´s done any work with Windows NT or Windows 2000 will quickly realize that while setting security is easy, setting security correctly is not. Enter a trio of utilities from Small Wonders Software: Security Explorer, Secure Copy, and Enterprise Security Reporter. One of the first things that came to mind when I used the first two utilities was: Why didn´t Microsoft think to include tools like these in NT and Win2K? The Small Wonders tools are now part of my NT and Win2K network administration tool kits. Let´s take individual looks at these three utilities:

Security Explorer

Security Explorer is an Access Control List (ACL) editor. It allows you to quickly and easily grant, revoke, clone, search for, back up, restore, and export user and group permissions on the network.

Security Explorer not only allows you to explore and modify permissions on NTFS-formatted partitions, but also on shares and the Registry. And, assuming you have the correct permissions, you can perform all tasks on your network´s remote systems as well.

View and alter the security permissions for your files with ease

Rogue permissions are the bane of every systems administrator. Have you ever migrated users from one group to another and then spent hours tracking and updating the security permissions of files and directories so that your migrated users can access them? Security Explorer, from Small Wonders of Orlando, helps you manage your file security better.

Security Explorer is a utility that lets you view and change the security permissions on files in your Windows NT environment. The utility's extensive search capabilities let you search across subdirectories for permissions on specific groups and modify those permissions recursively on your system without affecting the permissions of other users. As Screen 1 shows, you can even replace the security permissions for an entire group with permissions for another group (e.g., move all the permissions for the marketing group to the sales group).
