Smart Security 2000 Size: 484k Shareware $25.00

Smart Security is a service for Windows NT and Windows 2000 which allows the administrator of the machine, or the domain, to set permissions for the local devices of the machine.  This is achieved by including users into the membership of some special user groups:  These groups can be local, or can be ©global? groups held on the server. If the user is a member of the group, then they will be allowed to use that particular local device.  If the user isn©t a member of the appropriate group, then permission will be denied, and they will not be permitted to access that device.  If there is no group relating to a particular device, then everybody has access to that device. Administrators of both the local machine, and the domain, are granted complete access to all devices. Rated 5 stars by ZDNet
