Idera Acquires SharePoint Auditing Solution

Adds Auditing to Broad Portfolio of SharePoint Management Products, Announces Public Beta of Idera SharePoint Audit

ANAHEIM, CALIF. – OCTOBER 3, 2011 – In booth #617 at the Microsoft SharePoint Conference 2011, Idera, a leading provider of Microsoft SharePoint management and administration tools, today announced the acquisition of Muhimbi’s SharePoint Audit Suite renamed Idera SharePoint audit™ 2.5. Muhimbi is an international provider of products for the SharePoint and InfoPath markets.

Today, Idera also opened the public beta program for Idera SharePoint Audit, a comprehensive SharePoint auditing solution that captures logon events, views, inserts, updates, deletes and changes all the way to the field level, to give administrators a complete view of who is doing what, and where in their SharePoint environments. Idera SharePoint audit enables administrators to automatically turn on auditing for new SharePoint sites, configure specialized auditing at the web application or site collection level and monitor the level of auditing across the farm. Administrators can also collect the data needed to comply with regulations and data security requirements such as Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) and HIPAA.

“As we started to research what functionality we would add to our SharePoint product portfolio, Muhimbi’s SharePoint auditing solution rose to the top of the list because it is easy to use and provides immediate value much like our current solutions,” said Wayne Washburn, Director of SharePoint Products at Idera. “SharePoint audit quickly and easily provides administrators with granular information about their farm activity, which can be used to improve SharePoint security and compliance management. We invite all SharePoint administrators to try SharePoint audit and send us your feedback.”
