Local and Enterprise-Wide Access.
Manage security on both the local server as well as establish security settings on multiple servers.
Instant Access to Security.
No more navigating through folders or registry keys and having to select Properties. Security Explorer's easy to use interface incorporates a simple navigation pane that lists both assigned and inherited permissions in a separate security pane for selected objects. The Windows Explorer interface has been extended so it can also be used to directly access and manage NTFS permissions.
Complete Security Management.
Security Explorer not only lists the current security settings, but allows full granting, revoking and modifying of permissions, modifying group membership, and cloning existing permissions onto other accounts.
Security Explorer lets administrators search NTFS volumes for specific assignments to a user or group.
No more "Access Denied" when setting permissions. Security Explorer can manage the security settings of file and folders administrators would normally be blocked from accessing.
Unlike the native tools with Windows where you have to take ownership, Security Explorer assigns ownership to files and folders without the need for the Take Ownership right.
With Security Explorer, you can print out the security settings to easy to read reports.
Backup and Restore.
Security Explorers backup and restore feature gives administrators the ability to store and recover NTFS security on files and folder without having to backup or restore the files and folders themselves.
Open File Management.
Because you are establishing security and may want to disconnect users from files so new security settings take effect, Security Explorer has a centralized open file management interface built in. Servers can be queried for open files and select resources can be closed.
Security Explorer provides a command line interface so you can script your permission management.
