Extend Security with TITUS Security Suite for Microsoft SharePoint

New suite helps enhance SharePoint security; promotes stronger data governance

Anaheim, CA (Microsoft SharePoint Conference 2011 – Booth #354) —October 3, 2011 TITUS, a leading provider of security and compliance solutions for email, documents and Microsoft SharePoint, today announced the release of TITUS Security Suite for Microsoft SharePoint. This suite delivers a complete security-enhanced solution designed to provide additional security features to organizations relying on SharePoint for information sharing and collaboration.

The sheer amount of information being uploaded, shared and collaborated on each day within SharePoint means organizations need to take a more proactive approach to protecting valuable data. In addressing security, enterprises need to properly manage permissions and raise awareness of sensitive information across the organization.

"Everyday, leading businesses from every market sector choose SharePoint as their enterprise collaboration solution," said Jared Spataro, senior director, SharePoint Product Management from Microsoft. "With the amount and sensitivity of data in SharePoint environments growing, it is critical for enterprises to implement data governance policies that will secure important information assets."

TITUS Security Suite for SharePoint is comprised of TITUS Metadata Security for SharePoint and TITUS Document Policy Manager for SharePoint.

  • TITUS Metadata Security for SharePoint helps to protect information in SharePoint by automatically applying permissions to sensitive folders, documents and lists based on their metadata. Security is applied consistently and automatically across content, removing the potential need to manually define access rights for each individual document or library.
  • TITUS Document Policy Manager for SharePoint helps raise awareness of sensitive information in SharePoint by applying visual labels to existing and new documents. By routinely converting documents to PDF, unauthorized editing of documents is prevented.

TITUS Metadata Security for SharePoint can set permissions on each document so that some groups can see all content within the library, but other groups can only see documents of a certain classification.

"Many organizations require specialized solutions to meet their specific security needs," said Tim Upton, President and CEO, TITUS. "Our security suite for SharePoint provides a practical way for organizations to extend SharePoint security while driving end-user awareness of how sensitive data should be handled."

TITUS Security Suite for Microsoft SharePoint is available immediately through TITUS and through authorized reseller partners.
