N-able Simplifies and Expedites Enterprise Security Reporting With Complimentary Windows Server Security Solution

New ACL Reporter Tool Helps Busy MSPs and IT Administrators Perform NTFS Security Audits in Record Time

OTTAWA--(Marketwire - March 29, 2011) - N-able Technologies®, the global leader in remote network and systems management (NSM) software for managed service providers (MSPs) and IT departments, today announced the free availability of ACL Reporter, an enterprise-class downloadable tool designed to give MSPs and IT administrators a fast, convenient way to perform Windows Server security reporting.

Offered free of charge by N-able and valued at U.S.$350, ACL Reporter verifies, reports and confirms Windows NT file system (NTFS) and share permissions in an easy presentable format. The downloadable software installs in seconds and enables busy internal and external IT teams to complete NTFS security audits in minimal time.

Featuring on-demand reporting capabilities, ACL Reporter allows MSPs and IT administrators to quickly assess a networked environment, track system changes over time and identify security weaknesses to prove the environment is safe and secure. In addition, ACL Reporter provides channel partners and IT administrators with a granular level of control by reporting only what they need to know from multiple servers in multiple domains.

Key features and benefits of this agent-less discovery and reporting solution include:

  • Simplifies NTFS security reporting by identifying and configuring only the files and data that should be collected and reported on
  • Assists with compliance by proactively maintaining and reporting on access controls to address many of the requirements of regulatory and best-practice standards
  • Enhances Windows security initiatives: finds weaknesses, over-exposed files and over-privileged users
  • Offers a simple user interface for ease of use, and a new collection engine that maximizes performance when executing large server security reporting jobs
  • Quick, professional reporting to share with auditors and CIOs, and the ability to save reports for future comparison

"Windows Server security reporting is stressful as well as tedious and time consuming. The demands that it places on IT departments can be significant," says Derik Belair, vice president of marketing and business development for N-able Technologies. "Our new, free ACL Reporter tool expedites and simplifies the search and discovery process, giving MSPs and IT departments a convenient, professional way to quickly perform NTFS audits, as well as respond to auditors or CIOs in need of documentation."

ACL Reporter is just one of several complimentary tools offered by N-able for both IT departments and MSPs. In October, the company announced ADSearch, an enterprise-class tool designed to give IT administrators a time-saving, convenient approach to Windows Active Directory (AD) searching and reporting.
