The new release also includes the optional Accessibility Foundation Module (AFM). AFM provides users with a set of tools to create an accessible platform/framework for a SharePoint portal or intranet site. AFM is integrated into the Compliance Sheriff offering to provide a more complete and easy-to-deploy method of addressing SharePoint framework accessibility. The most significant advantage of AFM is the enterprise-friendly installation method that allows a SharePoint Server Administrator to easily apply a master configuration to multiple SharePoint Applications. Improvements were also made to the control adapters, making it much easier to customize, add, or subtract them as needed.
Thomas Logan, HiSoftware Vice President of Product Management commented, “By integrating the Accessibility Foundation Module with Compliance Sheriff, SharePoint architects and developers now have the ability to readily identify and address issues in their code, deploy fixes to their code, and ultimately report on improvements to accessibility compliance. Our AFM beta site customers all experienced significant levels of accessibility improvements helping them meet compliance requirements.”

It allows organizations to integrate a comprehensive and automated solution for managing Web Governance standards and custom polices within SharePoint Server 2007/2010 as part of their best practices and corporate Risk Management strategy.
Kurt A. Mueffelmann, president and CEO of HiSoftware stated, “SharePoint is the fastest-growing collaboration platform on the market. While organizations that use SharePoint are taking advantage of the Internet in a powerful way, they are potentially putting themselves at risk through uncontrolled content creation.” He continued, “This latest release provides a wider umbrella for SharePoint governance and regulatory compliance by allowing organizations to not only monitor their websites and intranets for compliance, but also by extending this capability to include social media, collaborative tools, document libraries and even email.”
