Nashua, NH (PRWEB) October 18, 2012
HiSoftware Inc., a provider of content-aware compliance and security software, today announced record public sector growth for the US Federal fiscal year which ended September 30, 2012, including the addition of three significant United States federal government agencies to its roster of clients. US Treasury, IRS and USDA Forestry Services have all selected HiSoftware Compliance Sheriff® to meet their individual needs for Web accessibility, privacy monitoring and compliance for the Web and SharePoint. The agencies join over 250 other public sector agencies and institutions already leveraging the company’s solutions to enforce content compliance with a wide range of regulatory guidelines and to more effectively mitigate risk across their digital environments including SharePoint.
Mandates for openness and transparency in government have fueled the growth of online resources and services available to constituents. SharePoint has become a widely adopted platform to manage that content within federal agencies. These trends mean that agencies must ensure that both public and internal content balance the need for openness with requirements for accessibility, privacy and information security.
The HiSoftware Sheriff Suite of products offers federal agencies and other organizations an automated, content-aware compliance and security solution. It ensures SharePoint and public-facing Web content can be accessed by all constituents and employees as required by Section 508, that content meets privacy requirements for personally identifiable information (PII), Protected Health Information (PHI) and other confidential factors, and it remains secure both inside and outside of SharePoint. The solution monitors SharePoint sites, libraries, lists, documents, social portals and websites. The HiSoftware Sheriff Suite continuously audits data and documents at rest and in motion for compliance requirements, and identifies areas of risk or specific policy violations. Once violations are detected, pre-defined workflows are put into action to help mitigate risk and ensure swift issue resolution through automatic classification and encryption, notifications and publication prevention.
“There is increased pressure for federal agencies to ensure compliance with regulations for privacy and Web accessibility in federal government,” said Kurt Mueffelmann, president and CEO, HiSoftware. “With data breaches making headlines every day, there is an even bigger focus on ensuring sensitive information remains secure, without hindering the collaboration benefits of an ECM platform like SharePoint. We provide agencies with a solution to address a wide range of compliance needs to identify potential compliance issues, secure sensitive information and mitigate risk before it can harm the agency.”
