Sharepoint 2010 Security Audit

Posted on 2011-05-06

Is there a good tool that can audit the security and permissions given on a site by site level?  Also, that would allow ongoing management.  Something low in cost or free would be best.

    There is nothing low cost of free for doing this.  You either have to spend your money writing code to do it or buy a $1,000+ solution.  SharePoint is an expensive product to buy and even setup to learn so any software development company has to invest a LOT to work with the product.  They aren't going to offer a complex solution that was expensive to build at a low cost or for free.

    You could look at writing your own PowerShell script to query all of the sites and format your own report.

    Try SUSHI from codeplex

    it is free and open source.

    that might give you a lite version of any commercial product out there.

    Best of luck.
