FolSec is a web-based solution to manage share areas effectively. It allows us to look at the sharing fields from 3 perspectives. Reporting, managing,
auditing of folder permissions on sharing fields according to the file types.


       1.  Folder permission perspective (NTFS Permissions Management)

1.2.   Each department or user can manage the privileges of the folder in their own sharing field.

1.3.    You can grant periodical folder permissions. For example; full rights was given Mr. İsmail for  2 hours on \\ fileserver \ finance folder. The rights are automatically removed at the end of the period. The periodical rights report is sent by an e-mail.

1.4.    Copy all rights of one user to another user.

1.5.   Move all rights of one user to another user.

1.6.    Be notified by automatic e-mail if the Everyone group is defined in a folder.

1.7.    You can see and manage who has what rights in a folder in the sharing field. (Authorization of folder rights, add authority, remove authority, change authority.)

1.8.    Report and manage in which folders a user is entitled. Delete or change all rights in bulk

1.9.    Report the change in folder rights (Who, When, To, What rights are granted in which folder)

1.10.  You can undo folder rights changes from FolSec Panel. (For example, in the \\ fileserver \ Finance folder, İsmail's Full Rights have been changed to Read). Restore with restore feature.

1.11. You can be notified by e-mail if there is a change of authority in a specified folder. (For example, full rights are given to ismail user in finance folder)

1.12.  Your users can make folder claims from the FolSec panel. The system can authorize admission claims. Who has made the claim for which folder is registered who has authorized

2. File access control perspective

2.1.   You can report file accesses in sharing fields. (Who, When, Which file has been deleted - created or read.)

2.2.  Which file types have been deleted these days and when deleted!

2.3.  Which file types were created these days who created when.

2.4.  What kind of authority changes were made in which folders through Windows? You can analyze security logs.

2.5.  The owner of which folder has been changed. Who changed it when?

2.6.  Windows events when deleted by whom!

2.7. Who tried to delete the finance folder when? Find failed deletion and read attempts.


3. File type analysis 

3.1.    You can analyze and report the types of folders and files in the share fields.

3.2.    What types of files are there on the sharing server?

3.3.    What types of files does the user have on the sharing server and where?

3.4.    You can report on file sharing server by file type, size, creation date (Oldest file - Most recent file).

3.5.    You can create folder in file sharing area, copy, move, delete and correct name.

3.6.    What is the largest folder size in the share area? Who is the owner? What types of files are in the folder?

1.1.  Minimum Hardware: 16GB Ram 4Core CPU 50GB Free Disk space. (SSD Disk infrastructure is recommended for performance)

1.2.  Software requirement: Windows 2008 (64bit), Windows 2012 (64bit), Windows 2016, Windows 2019 (64bit)

1.3.  Database Requirement: Mysql DB . Folsec automatically installs the database.

1.4.  Supported Browser: Google Chrome, Firefox, Yandex.

1.5.   Access Ports: The default web port is 5000. It is replaceable. (https: // localhost: 5000

  5000, 5003 and SMB port 445 must be open to access server for sharing fields where FolSec is installed.

Softwares to be installed on the server: FolSec automatically installs the Visual C ++ 2015 version required during installation.


1.1.  Download the FolSec Setup file from www.folsec.com

                Run the setup file and complete the installation as shown














  Dashboard; the number of Servers, the number of shared folders, the number of users in shares, the number of permissions detected and changed in folders, the panel showing how many folders everyone has rights to, the panel showing the number of folder permissions requests, and the fields where the information about the server is displayed here.
