Titus™ Launches Version 2 of Metadata Security for the Microsoft® SharePoint® Platform


Making it even easier to secure documents in SharePoint lists and libraries

San Francisco, CA (SPTech Conference Booth #704) - February 10, 2010TITUS a leading provider of security and compliance solutions for email and documents, has released the latest version of TITUS Metadata Security™ for Microsoft SharePoint. The newly enhanced Metadata Security application provides enhanced options for administrators to protect information in SharePoint based on metadata properties. Metadata Security enables administrators to maintain all information in a single library or list while restricting access or permissions associated with items, based on one or more metadata properties. TITUS will be showcasing the solution in booth 704 at SPTech Con in San Francisco, along with their other leading SharePoint security products.

To secure individual documents or items in SharePoint, administrators need to create individual per item security which is complicated and time consuming. TITUS Metadata Security for SharePoint enables administrators to assign security based on attributes or metadata columns. With this solution, it is much easier for administrators to configure security as there is no need to assign permissions to every item. Metadata Security can automatically assign specific permissions for each item in SharePoint, eliminating the need to define security settings and item-level permissions manually. This enables companies to maintain a central repository with permission based access.

Key Features of this versioninclude:

  • Support for metadata security rules based on more than one column. For example, administrators can build special perrmissions for documents where the Department metadata equals FINANCE and Security equals INTERNAL USE.
  • Ease of use with building metadata security rules for documents that have metadata with user names. For example, in a healthcare environment you can protect sensitive healthcare documents, by automatically assigning permissions to doctors and patients.
  • Support for SharePoint document libraries and now SharePoint lists.
  • Support for Microsoft SharePoint Server and now Windows SharePoint Services platforms.

"TITUS Metadata Security is the only product that allows us to catalogue a giant repository of documents that each of our large pharmaceutical clients can access with restricted permissions," said Mark Cutler, Manager Information Technology, Corporate Translations Inc. "We are truly excited about the flexibility of the new release enabling us to give even better service and value to our customers."

"As with all TITUS’ products, customer feedback has driven the development of this latest release," says Charlie Pulfer, VP Product Development and Marketing for Titus. "Administrators need a simple way to control access to information in SharePoint while ensuring team collaboration. Our latest version of Metadata Security enables secure information sharing in SharePoint in a flexible and easy way."
