Nashua, NH (PRWEB) May 05, 2014
One of a site administrator’s biggest challenges is who has access to what and who can see what is in SharePoint. They waste time and energy trying to balance how to maintain inheritance, while avoiding the continual proliferation of new sites in order to manage security and permissions. Even if security is well-configured, users can move or copy content to unsecure, unmanaged platforms like email and desktops, circumventing those controls. HiSoftware Inc., a leading provider of compliance and security solutions, today announced the release of HiSoftware Site Sheriff™, a new solution that leverages dynamic access, deny rules and a zero-footprint secure viewer to allow a wide variety of secure sharing scenarios and keep confidential information in SharePoint.
“Enterprise admins face a broadening array of demands on their time. Site Sheriff offers a clean, easily deployed and powerful solution to the most common problems faced in SharePoint enterprise content management and governance,” said Chris McNulty, HiSoftware’s CTO.
Solutions for site owners to regain control over SharePoint sites and increase ROI
HiSoftware Site Sheriff controls access to SharePoint content by allowing a wide variety of secure sharing scenarios to empower focused audiences to collaborate without changing item permissions and adding complexity. It uses business logic – document metadata, user properties and more – to create powerful rules that allow or deny access to selected content, sites and Web applications. Using Site Sheriff, site administrators can adjust the user interface to trim ribbons and menus and remove selected options like desktop copying, email and offline sync. It helps assure that SharePoint documents stay in SharePoint with an agentless secure document viewer. Site Sheriff provides fine grained security using metadata-driven permission rules to help organizations and administrators gain control over SharePoint sites and increase ROI.
Key features and capabilities:
“Companies are still struggling with how to best leverage SharePoint for confidential information while still maximizing the collaboration benefits. The key is to ensure that only the right users can access the right content,” said HiSoftware CEO Kurt A. Mueffelmann. “Site Sheriff provides a simple, yet sophisticated answer to this problem by leveraging dynamic access to manage complex sharing scenarios that aren’t available out-of-the-box. It provides deny rules to ensure confidential information stays that way.”
