Hello,

I was wondering if anyone has recommendations on alternatives to Quest Security Explorer http://www.quest.com/security-explorer/

The primary need is to see Who has access to what folders in a windows file server folder structure. But also be able to create a report, What folder does User X have access to?

Thanks
josef

Give SolarWinds a try.

They have an AD permissions analyser tool.

SecureSphere File Activity Monitoring

Gone though Solar Wind\ Security Explorer advantages from site, these also good softwares,

Now you have to decide which software will suit for your company, according to budget/ compliance

Quest makes really good tools but they do cost. If you are looking for something free you may take a look at dumpsec. The reporting isnt a pretty as the paid tools but still pretty good.
