Idera Announces New SharePoint Encryption Product

HOUSTON – FEBRUARY 8, 2012 – Idera, a leading provider of Microsoft SharePoint administration solutions, today announced Idera SharePoint encrypt™. Idera SharePoint encrypt joins Idera SharePoint enterprise manager™ and Idera SharePoint audit™ to provide the most comprehensive solution for SharePoint administration and security management available today. The solution encompasses security rights and permissions management, activity auditing, and now content encryption to protect SharePoint documents as well as the underlying SharePoint and Microsoft SQL Server systems from unwanted access and to ensure regulatory compliance.

Idera SharePoint encrypt leverages technology from CipherPoint to provide a complete encryption solution for Microsoft SharePoint environments, combining strong encryption and key management to secure sensitive content on SharePoint servers. It allows security administrators to specify user access lists that differ from the basic SharePoint permissions setup and keeps files secure from unauthorized users including Windows and SharePoint administrators. This facilitates compliance with regulations such as HIPAA/HITECH, PCI DSS and GLBA. At the same time, it ensures that authorized users have easy, transparent access to their information.

“As SharePoint adoption grows, companies increasingly rely on SharePoint to hold critical data such as employee information or intellectual property, and the risk of exposing that data to the wrong person grows as well. We’ve seen recent examples in the news such as the WikiLeaks security breach in which information was pulled directly out of SharePoint,” said Wayne Washburn, Director of SharePoint Products at Idera.    “SharePoint encrypt provides multiple safeguards against compromised SharePoint data security and provides the perfect addition to our multi-layer security solution across SharePoint and SQL Server.”
