The willingness of our government customers to recommend us to other agencies is a testament to the quality of our solutions and our continuous commitment to customer success.
Nashua, NH (PRWEB) October 04, 2011
Increasing deployments of Microsoft SharePoint across federal government agencies and other public sector organizations, combined with the evolving need to enforce regulatory and other data privacy guidelines across digital environments, continues to drive growth in the market for Web content compliance and security solutions.
HiSoftware Inc., a provider of content-aware compliance solutions, today announced significant customer momentum in the public sector, particularly in the third calendar quarter, with large contract awards for its SharePoint product as well as a number of new engagements for non-SharePoint Web properties from agencies including the Department of Veterans Affairs, National Institutes of Health, US Army TACOM, Department of Commerce Office of the Attorney General, Department of Labor, Federal Trade Commission, GSA, SEC, Womack Army Medical Center and the Department of Homeland Security.
SharePoint and overall Web content compliance is crucial for government agencies and all public sector organizations. Agencies must provide intranets, extranets, websites and SharePoint environments that are compliant with regulatory mandates such as HIPAA, FISMA and Section 508, including assurance that Personally Identifiable Information (PII), Protected Health Information (PHI) and other sensitive data is collected and stored in accordance with privacy guidelines.
"Many federal agencies are concerned about the lack governance and policy enforcement within their SharePoint environments, putting at risk their ability to properly utilize it as a content and collaboration platform that meets the strict accessibility and privacy requirements set for agencies, their employees and the general citizenry they serve,” said Dana Simberkoff, HiSoftware Public Sector Vice President. "HiSoftware helps these agencies realize the full business value of SharePoint while protecting sensitive content and maintaining strict compliance standards.”
HiSoftware’s Compliance Sheriff for SharePoint complements the powerful content publishing and collaboration features in SharePoint Server 2007/2010 by continuously auditing data and documents for compliance requirements such as privacy, information security, accessibility, site quality and brand integrity. Along with the hundreds of checkpoints included in the Compliance Sheriff rules engine, including pre-defined checkpoint groups for HIPAA, FISMA, Section 508 and other regulatory mandates, Compliance Sheriff allows users to easily define and configure tests for an organization’s unique policies without costly consulting and/or programming resources.
HiSoftware's ability to help agencies tailor Compliance Sheriff to meet their individual needs has generated significant attention amongst government agencies looking for SharePoint compliance solutions. Referrals from existing government customers and partners make up a significant percentage of new government awards acquired this year.
"The willingness of our government customers to recommend us to other agencies is a testament to the quality of our solutions and our continuous commitment to customer success,” added Simberkoff.
