Third party application for setting files and folder permissions

I am looking for an application that can scan and report on what permissions have been assigned to files and folders on and entire directory tree, would also like the software to be able to allow for the setting of permissions on various folders/files within the tree.

Our organization is very security tight because of the type of work we do, we have Quality Management system in place that pretty much dictates where users may and may not have access to, the QM system also has a set Directory structure that needs to be created everytime a new folder is opened.

Basic folder structure would be like this

Main Folder
                     fld1
                           admin
                                      finance
                                                   accounts
                                                   creditors
                                                   debitors
                                       HR
                                             Contracts
                                             Staff

When a new folder is opened it is given the 'List folder contents' permission by default, from level 5 more refined permissions need to be applied, to explain the levels, Level 1 is the top folder, in this case 'Main Folder', level 5 would be the accounts, creditors and debitors.

This same process is applied to every folder structure that is created and currently in place and I would like to make my life a bit easier in this regard.

This there an application that can do this?
