SecurityInsider, the new GroupExplorer
We are getting ready to launch SecurityInsider, the product formerly known as GroupExplorer. Along with the re-branding we’ve made several changes based on customer feedback to improve your user experience, including:
1. Change Logging: Changes can be logged to an XML file or to a field on an existing document whenever the scan is run. This allows you to see access changes over time for a specific user, group or database, answering questions such as “who had access to this database in January?”.
2. XPages: All of the Java applets have been replaced with XPages, removing the need to allow applets to run on your local client, and also allowing you to view all your SecurityInsider data on Mac as well as Windows.
3. Links Between Documents: Anytime you see the name of a database, group or user on a document, you can click it to open another document with information about that specific database, group or user, making it very easy to navigate through the data.
4. Faster, with Less Memory: SecurityInsider’s code was rewritten to make it much faster and operate with far less memory. Most importantly, it is completely backwards compatible with GroupExplorer. This allows existing GroupExplorer customers to upgrade to SI simply by updating the template.
5. Charts: The new charts provide a high-level overview of your data, and can give you warning signs of potential problems. The charts are directly connected to views in the database, so by clicking on the chart displaying how many databases have default manager access for example, you can go straight to a view with a list of those databases.
