With the latest integration between SharePoint and SAP Jam, end users can communicate with different departments quickly, securely, and without having to jump between multiple systems.

AvePoint, the Microsoft Cloud expert, today announced the general availability of AvePoint Perimeter Service Pack 6 – with a new ability to connect Microsoft SharePoint and the SAP® Jam™ social software platform. This integration allows groups and teams to work on projects and information from a single platform. AvePoint has also launched its storefront on the SAP HANA® App Center site, where customers can view information about the product and links to the AvePoint website to purchase the product.

As a member of the SAP PartnerEdge® program for Application Development, AvePoint will help organizations make the use of SharePoint for document collaboration transparent in SAP Jam for enterprise social collaboration. With this integration, organizations can allow SAP Jam communities to collaborate on documents that reside in SharePoint without leaving SAP Jam. Group administrators can simply “pin” SharePoint documents and folders to their SAP Jam communities, and the SharePoint documents are surfaced through AvePoint Perimeter from within the SAP Jam group interface.

“Departments do not operate within a silo, so it is necessary to collaborate with other areas of the organization that may be using different systems,” said John Peluso, Senior Vice President of Product Strategy, AvePoint. “With the latest integration between SharePoint and SAP Jam, end users can communicate with different departments quickly, securely, and without having to jump between multiple systems.”

Released in 2013, AvePoint Perimeter allows organizations to empower end users with mobile SharePoint access and secure collaboration while reassuring IT administrators’ of content security. Additional new features in AvePoint Perimeter SP 6 include:

Geo-location fencing for Contact Access Control – Administrators now have the ability to control access to the Perimeter portal, which provides a single point of access to an organization’s content, based on a user’s location. Now, organizations can prevent access to shared content for both internal and external users by setting coordinates for viewing only within a defined range.

Domain Restriction – Administrators can also restrict content sharing by whitelisting approved domains or blacklisting unauthorized domains. This ensures that internal users can only share with those who are approved, preventing data leakage.
