All enterprises need tools and procedures to keep content secure. SharePoint comes with a powerful set of tools that help you control access to content, but without a proper understanding of permissions, this task can be complicated and difficult.

Regardless of the environment in which you are trying to secure your content, you face the challenge of identifying the following elements:

  • Principals: users or groups that need permissions
  • Securable Objects: objects that users can access only with permission
  • Permissions: the level of access a user has to securable objects
SharePoint permissions: site security elements

The out of the box tools that SharePoint provides can help you secure your content but are also limiting when it comes down to tracking certain permissions for a user or managing Share

Point permissions over time. Preparing an overview of the necessary permissions is time-consuming. You need to be able to ask and answer questions such as the following:

  • Who can access the document “Executive Salaries”?
  • How can the user access this document?
  • Where does user X have permissions?

To answer these questions, you would either have to take a lot of time to track down the answers through the SharePoint UI, develop a custom solution, or invest in a third-party tool which will ease your SharePoint administration.
