Combining the two solutions provides customers with the ability to manage SharePoint permissions across multiple server farms including Office 365 while giving individual SharePoint site managers more control and flexibility over individual site security.

Microsoft SharePoint Conference 2011 -- Lightning Tools, a leading provider of Microsoft SharePoint productivity tools, and MetaVis Technologies, Inc., a leader in SharePoint information management tools, today announced a partnership to combine their respective SharePoint permissions management products to offer a more powerful solution for managing and reporting on SharePoint 2010 permissions. The combined solution offers SharePoint administrators the ability to manage SharePoint permissions in the cloud, for Office 365, or on-premises – regardless of where the SharePoint installations are hosted.

Under the partnership, Lightning Tools and MetaVis will offer customers DeliverPoint, Lightning Tools’ SharePoint permissions management and reporting solution, and MetaVis Security Manager, which offers permissions management across SharePoint 2010, 2007 or Office 365, including hybrid environments. Combining the two solutions provides customers with the ability to manage SharePoint permissions across multiple server farms including Office 365 while giving individual SharePoint site managers more control and flexibility over individual site security.

“Understanding how SharePoint 2010 permissions are defined and the ability to accurately manage SharePoint security is a must for any SharePoint installation that needs to protect its content,” says Brett Lonsdale, Product Author, Co-Founder and Chief SharePoint Evangelist at Lightning Tools. “DeliverPoint provides powerful SharePoint permissions management reports and an easy-to-use interface to safely administer SharePoint permissions. Partnering with MetaVis is key to our strategy, allowing our customers to have the same powerful permissions management capabilities regardless of where SharePoint is hosted.”

“Complexity and high costs are usually associated with a secure and well-maintained SharePoint permissions model, both of which multiply when securing and maintaining SharePoint installations across different locations or the cloud,” said Peter Senescu, President and Co-Founder of Metavis. “MetaVis Security Manager brings the flexibility to secure SharePoint content no matter where the SharePoint installation is, from a central location without any additional installation, instantly minimizing the complexity and costs. With MetaVis Security Manager and Lightning Tools DeliverPoint, you receive the best SharePoint permissions and security management tools at a very affordable price.”

Lightning Tools and MetaVis will present their new solution for SharePoint permissions management at the Microsoft SharePoint Conference 2011 (SPC 2011), Anaheim, CA. SPC 2011, October 3-6, 2011, at the Anaheim Convention Center. Lighting Tools will be in Booth #651 and MetaVis at booth #438.

Additionally, Lightning Tools and MetaVis will offer a live webcast on October 24, 2011, entitled “Everything You Need to Know about Managing SharePoint Permissions in a Hybrid Environment.” The webcast will offer a live demonstration of the new SharePoint permissions management solution from Lightning Tools and MetaVis.
