panagenda GroupExplorer:
The Perfect Companion for Security, Audits and Compliance

Most organizations have more groups than users. This is primarily because of uncertainty of what might be affected when using – let alone changing – an existing group. Hence, whenever a group is needed, a new one is created rather than re-using an existing one, quickly leading to hundreds or thousands of groups.

In addition, a company’s current security configuration is difficult to understand with so many groups, which are often deeply nested.

panagenda GroupExplorer puts you back in the driver’s seat, telling you:

  • Who is in which groups and why/how, distinguishing between users, groups and servers
  • Which groups have unknown, orphaned entries
  • Which groups are used in database Access Control Lists (ACLs)
  • How many and which mail- and security relevant entries does a group have
  • What access level do Default, Anonymous, and end users have in which databases, optionally including Roles and detailed access attributes
  • Through which path of groups is a user granted access to a database (e.g., user is in GroupABC which again is in LocalDomainAdmins which again is listed in the ACL)
  • Whether end users are specifically listed in Access Control Lists – often companies have a policy by which only Groups should be used in ACLs

Next to this rich variety of views into your security infrastructure, GroupExplorer also comes with a component to navigate Groups and their nestings – see image.panagenda GroupExplorer: Sidebar Plugin

Overall, the most prominent features of panagenda GroupExplorer are:

  • Improve maintainability and security
  • Clear insights into your security configuration
  • Analysis of groups and access rights
  • Full transparency on who has access to what
