Our goal is to help make it easier for our customers to manage and secure sensitive information in SharePoint and this partnership helps us to achieve it.
Nashua, NH (PRWEB) December 15, 2011
HiSoftware Inc., a provider of content-aware compliance and security solutions, today announced that it has been selected by Microsoft as a Managed Partner in the High Potential ISV (Independent Software Vendor) Group. HiSoftware Compliance Sheriff® SP and HiSoftware Security Sheriff™ SP enable organizations to monitor unstructured content stored in SharePoint repositories and then matches the uses of that content against corporate and federally regulated policies.
"Only a handful of companies achieve Managed Partner status within the High Potential ISV partner program, and even fewer are working with SharePoint," said HiSoftware President and CEO Kurt A. Mueffelmann. "SharePoint is one of the fastest-growing enterprise content management ecosystems, being part of this program puts HiSoftware in elite company within this environment."
Earlier this year HiSoftware announced the first content-aware compliance and security solution optimized for SharePoint 2010. Compliance Sheriff SP and Security Sheriff SP are designed to protect sensitive enterprise data including Personally Identifiable Information (PII), Protected Health Information (PHI), pre-release financials, strategic product information, HR data and more.
The security of this data is increasingly important, as SharePoint continues to become the go-to content repository in the enterprise. In its "State of the ECM Industry" report, AIIM noted that many enterprises are using SharePoint as their primary ECM. In fact, 70 percent of the largest global organizations surveyed use SharePoint in some capacity.
"Being part of the High Potential ISV Group gives HiSoftware the resources and close relationship to continue to build on the highly successful Compliance Sheriff platform. Our goal is to help make it easier for our customers to manage and secure sensitive information in SharePoint and this partnership helps us to achieve it," continued Mueffelmann.
HiSoftware provides content-aware compliance and security solutions for the monitoring and enforcement of privacy and information risk management guidelines across digital environments. These solutions create an auditable, highly-configurable information governance platform for content management and collaboration processes that ensure confidentiality, accessibility, brand integrity and site quality for public websites, Web portals, intranets and SharePoint sites.
