To address this issue, data security solutions provider Imperva recently announced the availability of its SecureSphere for SharePoint. According to the company, the new product addresses security requirements of the software’s database, file and web infrastructure, by allowing only users with proper credentials to access the data.
“SharePoint is a widely-deployed enterprise collaboration tool,” said Imperva. “Although collaboration with SharePoint increases the value organizations get from their unstructured data, protecting broadly accessible SharePoint data from internal and external threats is an ongoing challenge.”
Imperva’s chief technology officer added that, while SharePoint offers organizations immense collaboration tools, the software is unique when it comes to security issues.
Even though more companies are using SharePoint, some may not be maximizing the technology’s full potential. To help businesses utilize the software’s best practices, Wrox Publishing recently announced a new book authored by SharePoint experts Chris Caplinger, Brett Grego, Russ Houberg and Todd Kitta called SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise Content Management.
