Using PowerShell Remoting would be the best way, but I'm not sure about the OS of your target servers.  Managing security via PS is a pain in my opinion.  I prefer to combine some PS code with a utility like icacls.exe which is much easier to work with.
$scriptblock = { icacls "C:\temp\test" /grant "domain\group":F(OI)(CI) }
$servers = Get-Content servers.txt
Invoke-Command -computername $servers -scriptblock $scriptblock
