Nashua, NH (PRWEB) September 22, 2010
HiSoftware Inc. (http://www.hisoftware.com), a leading provider of Web content and social computing compliance solutions, today announced the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Enterprise Services, Infrastructure Architecture and Engineering team has awarded a contract to integrate HiSoftware Compliance Sherriff® for SharePoint® as part of its agency-wide Microsoft SharePoint 2010 implementation.
IRS will be using SharePoint 2010 as the backbone for its employee portal and to support a variety of applications across the agency. In addition to Section 508 accessibility requirements, the IRS Privacy Office and Chief Information Security Office also identified the need to manage content compliance for Personally Identifiable Information (PII), Financial Information and Sensitive Secure Information (SSI) within the SharePoint environment. HiSoftware Compliance Sheriff for SharePoint was chosen as the solution to manage compliance for these governance objectives.
HiSoftware will work with the IRS to install, implement, configure, customize and validate HiSoftware Compliance Sheriff across the IRS SharePoint Infrastructure. This will include identification and correction of 508 compliance deficiencies associated with the SharePoint implementation and configuration of the software to address both accessibility and privacy (PII and SSI) scenarios.
