Security Manager for SharePoint

Overview

The Challenge with SharePoint Security

Keeping track of who has access to what content isn’t easy in SharePoint. It can even be challenging to change security permissions across multiple SharePoint sites or farms. Security Manager for SharePoint can help.

Analyze and manage SharePoint permissions in real-time across multiple SharePoint site collections and farms. With Security Manager, administrators can see and manage what a user has access to; identify orphaned users; and compare or synchronize permissions across SharePoint or Office 365, including hybrid environments.

Take control of your SharePoint permissions today! Or combine with our Informant solution and take complete control of your content security.

The MetaVis Solution for SharePoint Security

Analyze:

Compare- an object’s permissions to better manage permission templates and identify where permissions do not match the templates.

Analyze & Identify- a user’s or group’s permissions for any site, list or item as well as which users or groups have permissions for a specific object.

Resolve- potential security problems such as disabled or deleted users who still have access rights in SharePoint.

Analyze Object Inheritance- reset or break inheritance for any object.

Then Action:

Add, Edit & Delete- SharePoint groups, users, permissions and permission levels in a visual hierarchical structure of site collections, sites, lists and individual items.

Copy- groups, users, permissions and permission levels between server farms, site collections, sites, lists and individual items across user directories (LDAP, ADFS, RDBMS).

Transfer & Manage- between users addressing issues such as employee turnover and new hires while managing multiple objects at the same time.
