FileTek Trusted Edge - Improving SharePoint Implementations.
Rockville, MD (PRWEB) July 7, 2009
FileTek, Inc., a pioneer developer of large-scale data management and information governance solutions, today announced that the Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc. (ESG), an industry-leading analyst firm providing strategic guidance and service to technology vendors, IT professionals, venture capitalists, and institutional investors, recently published a new white paper called, "FileTek Trusted Edge - Improving SharePoint Implementations." The paper was written by Brian Babineau, a renowned senior analyst who covers storage and information management solutions as well as regulatory compliance, corporate governance, and eDiscovery issues for ESG.
The ESG white paper initially explains Microsoft® Office SharePoint® Server (MOSS) popularity and drawbacks and then discusses how Trusted Edge® improves MOSS productivity, controls MOSS storage costs, enhances records management and eDiscovery, and helps organizations using MOSS comply with data privacy and security mandates. The white paper is available for download at http://www.filetek.com/frmtrustededgeESG.aspx.
Trusted Edge is best-practices information classification and asset management software that cost-effectively extends control to content created and stored at the "edge" of corporate networks - where more than 80% of electronic information originates and resides. Trusted Edge supports a comprehensive policy-driven engine, a fully automated and/or manual classification capability, and auto-tagging and asset branding technology that ensures data authentication and integrity. In addition, the software automates the movement of content to the proper repository of record (for example, MOSS) and, if desired, to other repositories in a federated storage architecture.
"FileTek wholeheartedly agrees with Mr. Babineau when he writes that 'Trusted Edge moves MOSS forward.' MOSS is a proven product but it can unfortunately become cluttered with too much irrelevant data. Trusted Edge certainly helps to overcome this problem," commented Mike Smith, the FileTek Product Manager for Trusted Edge. "Trusted Edge monitors user desktops in real-time and extends centralized document control to all enterprise desktops, laptops, and workstations, whether network-connected or offline. The software supports comprehensive classification features that eliminate irrelevant content uploads to MOSS. Furthermore, Trusted Edge not only proactively classifies and tags new documents and email at creation but also reviews and classifies existing legacy content. From a feature perspective, Trusted Edge is a real productivity booster. As Mr. Babineau wrote, 'When used with MOSS specifically, Trusted Edge enables organizations to generate even more measurable cost savings and productivity enhancements.'"
