Glen Rock, NJ (Feb. 1, 2011) Stealthbits Technologies today announced the release of a new SharePoint management and reporting solution available within the StealthAUDIT Management Platform (SMP). The newest addition to Stealthbits’ Data Governance offering bridges the gap between IT Management and Compliance, helping to address critical security risks such as open sites, broken inheritance, and ethical wall violations. Deep visibility into SharePoint permissions, infrastructure, content, and activity combine with SMP’s feature-rich framework to provide organizations with the advanced auditing, reporting, and workflow facilities they expect from DevConnections 2010’s “Best Windows Product.”
The new solution set gives administrators the ability to answer some of the most difficult administrative and compliance questions around SharePoint today, such as who effectively has access to SharePoint sites and content, what’s being used, which sites have gone stale, how servers have been configured, what’s been changing, and more. Uniquely, SMP for SharePoint allows administrators and auditors to see user activity across sites, a critical requirement for many governance campaigns.
Beyond just data collection, the SharePoint solution features a comprehensive reporting and analysis engine that gives users instant business intelligence rather than pages of raw data. Additionally, users have the ability to create their own solutions by leveraging the data collection, analysis, and reporting facilities native to SMP.
“SharePoint is already a business-critical application, and its value will only continue to increase with time. That being said, just like we’ve seen with the distributed file system, SharePoint sites can quickly grow out of control. We see it daily in customer environments — the need for an extensible, out-of-the-box solution is huge. SMP provides users with insight and features not available anywhere else, along with visibility across the entire SharePoint ecosystem and the vast majority of the Microsoft environment,” said Jeff Warren, Technical Product Manager at Stealthbits.
The SharePoint solution is the newest component of the StealthAUDIT Management Platform, an extensible engine that allows users to measure, manage, and maintain their critical infrastructure and applications across the Microsoft framework and beyond. Other solutions available within SMP include Exchange, Public Folders, Active Directory, BlackBerry and ActiveSync, Systems Governance, and Data Governance and Compliance.
