Aggregate and report on SharePoint permissions
SecureSphere aggregates and consolidates user rights across SharePoint sites to provide visibility into effective permissions. With SecureSphere for SharePoint, organizations can conduct rights reviews, eliminate excess rights, and identify dormant users, all of which help ensure access is based on business needto- know.
Allow data owners to control file access
SecureSphere identifies data owners by providing visibility into the top users of SharePoint files, folders and lists. Once the data owner is determined, organizations can reduce risk and keep files secure by directly involving data owners in access rights reviews.
SecureSphere features an intuitive Data Owner Portal that allows business owners to log in, make file access decisions, and submit the results directly to IT to take action. By putting file access control decisions in the hands of those who know corporate data the best, such as the VP of Finance or HR, access rights reviews are more accurate and can be performed more quickly.
Audit all data access activity
SecureSphere provides continuous monitoring and detailed auditing of all data access activity so organizations have a complete audit trail showing the "Who, What, When, Where, and How" of each data access. This enables security, compliance and SharePoint administrative staff to understand exactly who accessed, moved, changed or deleted data.
Enforce security policies in real-time
SecureSphere for SharePoint delivers a flexible policy framework that allows business to take action immediately when data access activity deviates from corporate policy. Organizations can respond by generating alerts, or in certain situations, blocking access completely. Your sensitive files are safe with SecureSphere for SharePoint, the only security technology that can stop unwanted access to files stored in SharePoint.
Protect against web-based attacks
SharePoint is a web-based system, subject to online attacks such as SQL injection and cross-site scripting. SecureSphere for SharePoint incorporates market-leading SecureSphere Web Application Firewall, which protects SharePoint from current and future web security threats.
Prevent unauthorized database access
SharePoint stores all data – files, lists, and application data – within a Microsoft SQL database. SecureSphere for SharePoint incorporates market-leading SecureSphere Database Firewall to monitor all database access and ensure unauthorized access is prevented.
Identify unused data
SecureSphere helps alleviate the constant growth of SharePoint data by identifying data that is stored in SharePoint, but which no one is using. This allows organizations to archive or delete the data, which reduces management overhead and frees valuable storage space.
