HAWTHORNE, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 09/02/14 -- STEALTHbits Technologies, Inc., a leading supplier of Data Access Governance solutions for unstructured data and Microsoft Infrastructure Management solutions, announced today complete support for SharePoint Online (part of Microsoft's Office 365 platform) within their flagship product, the StealthAUDIT Management Platform. Through deep understanding of effective access rights, data ownership, and more, StealthAUDIT provides the insight and tools needed to enforce secure collaboration within SharePoint, whether on-premise or in the cloud, ensuring that only the right people have access to the right data.

"Adoption rates for SharePoint Online are increasing within large enterprises," said Jeff Warren, VP of Product Management, STEALTHbits Technologies. "However, a main concern for IT is SharePoint Extranet Access, or allowing users outside of the organization to access content stored within SharePoint. SharePoint Online makes external sharing an even more integrated part of the SharePoint experience, and what we've developed will help organizations of any size alleviate the concerns they have around the security of their data in Microsoft's SharePoint Online environments."

There are two primary ways users can take advantage of granting outside users access to SharePoint:

1. Sharing a site with an individual user, by sending them an invitation
2. Providing an external sharing link for anonymous access to documents

According to Microsoft, "Anonymous guest links could potentially be forwarded or shared with other people, who might also be able to view or edit the content without signing in."

StealthAUDIT's deep and complete visibility into data and access across the entire SharePoint ecosystem, combined with simple, easy-to-use Entitlement Review and Self-Service Access Request workflows, enables organizations to significantly reduce the risk of data loss and insider threats. Furthermore, organizations can integrate the SharePoint entitlement catalog that StealthAUDIT creates with any Identity and Access Management platform, including those from existing STEALTHbits partners like SailPoint, RSA/Aveksa, IBM, and Microsoft.

STEALTHbits Technologies has extensive experience in the SharePoint Security and Governance space, with some of the world's largest organizations relying on STEALTHbits' Data Access Governance solutions for SharePoint to:

  • Identify access risks like open SharePoint sites and where unprotected "sensitive data" exists
  • Monitor SharePoint activity
  • Identify owners of SharePoint resources, and more
