Streamline your next audit by quickly pulling out an effective permissions report

Managers and compliance auditors often ask IT admins to furnish a list of all effective group membership and file share permissions granted to a group or a particular user. With native tools, responding to these requests requires manually pulling together multiple scripts, which can be both tedious and time-consuming. But with the Netwrix Effective Permissions Reporting Tool, you can satisfy such requests in minutes, validating the effective permissions and group memberships for a specific user or a group across AD and file shares.
