Exchange® Server Permissions

tenfold's automatic permission management and reporting for Exchange Server helps you stay on top of mailbox permissions.

How Does tenfold Manage Exchange Server Permissions?

The tenfold Exchange Server Plugin makes it easy to both assign and track permissions, providing you with a clear overview of who has access to specific mailboxes and mailbox folders. By breaking down nested groups, tenfold also shows you the effective permissions held by users.

Thanks to its user lifecycle management, tenfold is able to assign and update permissions fully automatically. Users can also request additional permissions through a convenient self-service interface. Learn more about the mailbox lifecycle in tenfold.

Note: tenfold‘s Exchange plugin covers Exchange Server as well as the Microsoft 365 service Exchange Online. By interfacing with both local Windows infrastructure and the Microsoft Cloud, tenfold is able to offer automated permission management for local, cloud and hybrid environments.
