HiSoftware Site Sheriff is Selected as a KMWorld Trendsetting Product of 2014

We are honored to be named a KMWorld Trendsetter for the fourth consecutive year. This award validates the innovation we are continuously striving to achieve to help organizations collaborate data securely.

For the fourth consecutive year, KMWorld honored HiSoftware, now a Cryptzone company, on its annual list of Trend-Setting products. The company’s newest solution, HiSoftware Site Sheriff™, for SharePoint permissions and access management was selected as one of 91 products to receive the publication’s 2014 award.

Since 2003, KMWorld has issued its Trend-Setting Product award list. More than 650 offerings were assessed by the publication's judging panel, which consists of editorial colleagues, analysts, system integrators, vendors themselves, line-of-business managers and users. All products selected demonstrate clearly identifiable technology breakthroughs that serve the vendors’ full spectrum of constituencies, especially their customers.

“Securing content in the age of stringent compliance regulation requires solutions that are innovative and solve a real problem for organizations,” said Hugh McKellar, editor in chief at KMWorld. “Site Sheriff was selected by the panel because it demonstrates thoughtful, well-reasoned innovation and execution for the most important constituency of them all: the customer.”

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 leverages dynamic access, deny rules and a secure viewer to help ensure that only the right users can access the right content and helps to keep confidential information in SharePoint. Site Sheriff provides fine grained security using metadata-driven permission rules to help organizations and administrators gain control over SharePoint sites and increase ROI.

“We are honored to be named a KMWorld Trendsetter for the fourth consecutive year,” said Kurt Mueffelmann, President and CEO. “Information security is top of mind these days and organizations need to think about security holistically to protect data from the inside out. This award validates the innovation we are continuously striving to achieve to help organizations collaborate data securely, and is underscored by the rapid uptake of Site Sheriff since its release this May.”

HiSoftware also announced last week that it was acquired by Cryptzone, a global provider of data security and identity and access management (IAM) solutions. HiSoftware’s product portfolio provides a highly complementary set of solutions that will enhance Cryptzone’s already robust capabilities in securing critical data in the cloud, on mobile devices, and in customer datacenters. The combined company will offer a complete suite of context-aware access control, data security and compliance solutions designed for today’s dynamic, mobile, cloud-centric enterprise IT.
