Bethesda, MD (Vocus) September 30, 2009
Epok Inc. announced today it has integrated its Epok Edition for Microsoft SharePoint with Syntergy’s SharePoint replication solution. The integrated solution provides organizations deploying SharePoint extranets with new options for managing content that is also stored in SharePoint intranet sites. As part of the partnership, Epok will also market Syntergy’s Replicator to organizations with multiple SharePoint deployments, such as companies with branch offices, where replicating documents and metadata locally improves SharePoint performance by eliminating Internet bandwidth bottlenecks and latency.
Syntergy’s Replicator allows SharePoint objects on an intranet deployment to be asynchronously replicated to an extranet deployment. This includes shared document libraries, web parts and even entire site collections. This physical separation improves security and allows the structure and features of the SharePoint sites to be separately tailored to the needs of internal and external users. For organizations with distributed SharePoint deployments, the system lets users on a global network have faster access to the most up-to-date version of documents and content, reducing network bandwidth requirements.
The Epok Edition for Microsoft SharePoint increases business agility and simplifies SharePoint extranet user administration, while improving security and information compliance -- in a product platform that scales from a single farm to multiple enterprises. The foundation for this breakthrough is an extensible security, provisioning and authorization system for external users that links to the business agreements and policy governing external user access. Epok’s customers represent every major industry including government, financial services, healthcare, consulting services, construction and manufacturing.
“The emergence of SharePoint extranets is a natural evolution in the use of Microsoft SharePoint,” said David Seaman, the VP of SharePoint Technologies at Syntergy. “There is a practical need to make information stored on intranet sites available to users accessing dedicated SharePoint extranet deployments. The addition of Replicator to Epok’s portfolio will provide customers with a solution that bi-directionally replicates content beyond the firewall, and also includes the user management, security and compliance requirements associated with a SharePoint extranet.”
“Adding Syntergy Replicator to Epok’s extranet solution provides our customers with a an additional secure method for linking content on intranet SharePoint sites to dedicated extranet SharePoint deployments without allowing external users into the corporate SharePoint sites,” said Fred Giordano, CEO of Epok Inc. “In addition, many of our customers are larger enterprises with distributed SharePoint deployments. We are excited about the opportunity to help these customers achieve better security and performance through use of Replicator.”
