We look forward to helping the VA build a best practices program to help ensure compliance across their entire infrastructure. - Jeff Butts, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, HiSoftware
Nashua, NH (PRWEB) September 8, 2010
HiSoftware Inc. (http://www.hisoftware.com), a leading provider of Web content and social computing compliance solutions, today announced the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) awarded a $2.5 million pilot program for the integration of HiSoftware Compliance Sherriff® for SharePoint® at multiple VA Microsoft SharePoint Server farms.
The VA provides a wide range of websites and Web-enabled applications that assist the agency in managing its diverse business. All of these applications must be accessible in accordance with Section 508 of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and comply with regulations governing privacy. HiSoftware Compliance Sheriff will be used to address compliance issues related to Section 508 and the management of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and Protected Healthcare Information (PHI) within the VA’s Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) environment. HiSoftware will also create a plan to address the VA’s enterprise-wide deployment of the solution.
“The pilot program will provide the Department of Veterans Affairs with the software and services to support the compliance issues the agency has outlined,” said Jeff Butts, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, HiSoftware. “We look forward to helping the VA build a best practices program to help ensure compliance across their entire infrastructure.”
HiSoftware Compliance Sheriff provides users with a means to analyze content contributions for compliance issues across SharePoint websites, intranets, document libraries, email and social computing portals – keeping information safe, within regulatory guidelines and appropriate. HiSoftware will provide the VA with all necessary services, materials, products, licenses, training and travel to install, implement, configure, customize and validate Compliance Sheriff in seven (7) pilot MOSS farms. This will include identification and correction of 508 compliance deficiencies associated with these seven (7) sites, an analysis of the MOSS sites, configuration of the software to address both accessibility and privacy (PII and PHI) scenarios and the creation of a tailored plan to address enterprise-wide deployment of the HiSoftware Compliance Sheriff for SharePoint solution.
