Nashua, NH and Copenhagen, Denmark: HiSoftware, a leading provider of compliance and security solutions for SharePoint, has announced the release of HiSoftware Security Sheriff™ SP Version 3.0 for SharePoint, featuring new and enhanced features for content security, encryption, tracking and asset management.

 

Alan Pelz-Sharpe, research director - Content and Collaboration at 451 Research said: “As organizations look to consolidate and deploy on lower-cost platforms, SharePoint continues to be pervasive across global organizations. Though SharePoint itself provides some security features, for many buyers this is not enough. They have a need for much deeper, more granular and auditable security capabilities to ensure that enterprise information stays within the enterprise and is not accessed inappropriately.”

Securing SharePoint Content at the Document Level

HiSoftware Security Sheriff SP handles security and access at the document level using HiSoftware's secure metadata process within SharePoint. This enables organizations to ensure that only authorized personnel, not even site administrators unless required, access individual documents regardless of where those assets reside. Version 3.0 includes enhancements in the areas of asset management, document tracking and encryption.

Security Sheriff SP is part of the HiSoftware Sheriff Suite of SharePoint solutions, which also includes HiSoftware Compliance Sheriff® SP. Together these solutions help organizations manage and automate compliance with policies for content security, compliance and privacy.

“I always say the best thing about SharePoint is you can put anything in it, and the worst thing about SharePoint is you can put anything in it. Organizations can now mitigate the dichotomy they are experiencing as they balance an increasingly social collaborative environment with those of organizational security,” said Kurt Mueffelmann, president and CEO, HiSoftware. “Security Sheriff SP resolves the content issues through metadata-driven, item-level security to secure sensitive content in SharePoint in accordance with polices. Organizations can collaborate with confidence to leverage their SharePoint investment and mitigate risk. It also features a rich API that can support mobile devices including iPads.”
