Finding Unused Data and Groups
Eliminate stale data and free up space, reduce risk and increase productivity.
For most organizations, 50% of data becomes ‘stale’ after 90 days. Unfortunately, it’s very difficult to determine where that data resides, so it remains in expensive file systems and SharePoint storage, possibly exposed to risk due to excessive permissions and adding little to the organization’s productivity. Like data, the security groups and access control lists grow stale—groups may be empty or unused on the file systems, or may be deleted from directory services and not removed from the access control lists, resulting in the “unresolved SID/orphan SID” issue.
In order to properly update directory services and permissions, it takes more than a search of active directory—it requires answers to difficult questions:
