Track SharePoint Permission Changes Over Time

Permission changes can enable users to get access to sensitive data that they shouldn’t have. Therefore, timely detection of these changes is essential for keeping your environment secure.

SysKit Security Manager helps you detect modifications to permissions over time, whether the permission inheritance has been broken or restored, the permissions have been granted or removed, or if group membership has changed.

Stay on top of all changes in your environment

SysKit Security Manager crawls your environment and takes a snapshot of all permissions for your sites, lists, libraries, documents, and items.

Take a full snapshot of your environment or make custom snapshots and keep an eye on SharePoint permission changes over time.

Tip! Create a baseline snapshot with correctly assigned permissions, and use it as a reference when tracking permission changes on SharePoint objects over time.   

Identify if everyone has appropriate access after migration

The Permissions Compare feature allows you to quickly find differences in SharePoint permissions and detect unauthorized changes. It’s your perfect ally for data protection.

 Compare permissions between an object with broken permission inheritance and its parent

Clean up content which has unnecessary unique permissions and prevent possible headaches in the future.

 Compare permissions for any two selected SharePoint objects

For example, your users are reporting that they can access one list on a site, but the other one is giving them permissions errors.

 Compare permission changes on a specific object over time

Something worked well yesterday, but today it’s giving your users an “access denied” message. Check what’s going on.

The overview report of differences is exportable as an Excel file. This way, you can save the results, share them with your colleagues, and examine them more closely using filtering options. Here is a sample of an Object to Object Permission Compare Report.
