What are automated AD groups good for?

If you automate Active Directory groups you can:

  • reduce security risks
  • keep permissions up to date
  • reduce administration work load


Security risk - excess / unnecessary permissions

When an employee changes departments, authorizations must be changed as well:

  1. The user should get access to folders of the new department.
  2. The users permissions to folders of the old department must be removed.

In nearly all companies (at least for a short time) the user does have to many permissions - a risk!

Manual maintenance of AD groups costs:

  • time
  • resources
  • money
  • ...nervs, and this can start with the communication.

That is why you better automate the grant of authorizations for drives, files and and so on.
