Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Access Rights Manager

Only admins in IT use it. We manage the Dataowner and the Permissions they wanna give to their Users. With ARM we have completely restructured our main File Server and then have redone all of the Permissions based on what the Dataowner wants. We work closely with the Dataowner to make sure everything is set up as they want it.
  • Easy to use, drag and drop, permission change with every change made logged
  • Generating automated Reports for Dataowners to review
  • Log all activity on the File server in case of Breaches or Viruses
  • Design - the old 8Man design was more friendly
  • I miss to option to create custom "Who has access here" reports. My Dataowners dont need to know where users have List rights
  • Significantly cut administration time of Permissions on file server
  • Being able to prove who has made changes helped us out a lot
  • No negatives yet
Best suited: It is best suited for companies who don't want to worry too much about access rights. The initial workload may be huge, based on the current rights situation in your company, but after setting everything up the time to change or review permissions has dropped drastically. Not suited: If you want to specify permissions on a Folder and have them overwritten each time someone makes a change, ARM is not the product for you.
