Organizations worldwide have a mission-critical need to be able to accurately audit effective permissions on Active Directory objects to maintain security and demonstrate regulatory compliance.
Microsoft's Effective Permissions Tab is not 100% accurate. Far more importantly, it it substantially inadequate as it can only determine effective permissions one user at a time.
Specifically, what organizations need is the ability to accurately and easily determine the complete list of all users that have a specific effective permission granted on an Active Directory object.
Our Gold Finger Active Directory Effective Permissions Tool was designed to empower organizations fulfill this exact need.
It uniquely can instantly, accurately and trustworthily audit –
The complete set of effective permissions granted on an Active Directory object.
For each such effective permission, the complete list of all users that have that effective permission.
For each such user, the underlying permissions in the ACL that grants him/her this effective permission
