Washington, D.C. - November 3, 2015 - Metalogix, the premier provider of unified management software to migrate, manage and secure content across enterprise collaboration platforms in the cloud and on-premises, today announced ControlPoint 7.0. With new, embedded security intelligence, ControlPoint 7.0, delivers real-time situational awareness into suspicious SharePoint user activity to help prevent costly data breaches and leakages. Metalogix Sensitive Content Manager with ControlPoint 7.0, provides a powerful security combination and reinforces Metalogix' commitment to deliver a new era of unified management software to optimize the availability, performance, and security of content across the collaboration lifecycle.
According to the Experian 2015 Second Annual Data Breach Industry Forecast, almost half of organizations have suffered at least one security incident in the last 12 months and 73% acknowledged the likelihood of a breach by developing a data breach response plan. With nearly 60% of organizations (according to AIIM.org) using SharePoint for content collaboration, the need to secure SharePoint in the face of data breach risk is clear.
"Data breaches are one of the top concerns for CIOs, CSOs and their IT organizations," said Steven Murphy, CEO, Metalogix. "The primary focus today has been on securing and hardening the perimeter against outside threats, but little has been done to address the risk of insider threats. SharePoint is a central content collaboration platform for enterprises with highly sensitive data that is exposed and at risk. Current solutions simply can't provide the proactive intelligence and insight required to protect this critical content repository. With ControlPoint 7.0 we are addressing this security gap and changing the game for SharePoint security by automating and providing the insight and proactive management organizations need to identify and lock-down sensitive content to minimize the risk of data leakage."
As opposed to conventional, passive SharePoint security solutions which include a mix of permissions management and compliance-driven reporting functions, ControlPoint 7.0 is the only offering that delivers intelligent monitoring and content awareness, filling a gap in the existing SharePoint security model. This new software product provides real-time situational awareness into suspicious user activity with around the clock monitoring into what users are doing and accessing in SharePoint. It pinpoints unauthorized access and alerts on suspicious behavior up to, and including locking users out of SharePoint.
ControlPoint 7.0 features technology that uses real-time machine learning to analyze and detect suspicious patterns of activity in SharePoint and prevents unauthorized access to content. This advanced technology monitors SharePoint continually and alerts on suspicious behavior, tracking behavior anomalies and unauthorized access based on geo-location to protect against both internal and external threats. By providing insight into the content users are accessing, including when, where, what time and how often, ControlPoint can help organizations avoid unauthorized access and usage.
Perficient, Inc. is a leading technology and management consulting firm and Metalogix partner with deep expertise in enterprise content management and SharePoint infrastructure solutions for the Global 2000. According to Joe Crabtree, Senior Solutions Architect, MSFT Modern Apps Consultant for Perficient, "SharePoint is a powerful collaboration platform for the majority of businesses today, and as a result corporations are using it to store more confidential and sensitive information. The risks are simply too great to leave this content exposed. Metalogix has significantly raised the bar in SharePoint security with the new ControlPoint 7.0 release giving organizations the proactive solution they need to stay one step ahead of the security breaches that put sensitive data at risk."
Metalogix Sensitive Content Manager when used with ControlPoint 7.0 is redefining Data Loss Prevention (DLP) for securing sensitive content such as PII in SharePoint both in the cloud and on-premises. Powered by advanced machine learning technologies, Sensitive Content Manager surpasses existing data protection strategies and provides a far higher degree of accuracy for context aware identification, filtering and classification of content. While other DLP solutions employ rules and techniques that amount to little more than "Ctrl + F" to find PII, Metalogix Sensitive Content Manager provides a forensic analysis of the true nature of an organization's content.
