ScriptLogic Introduces New Security Management Features for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 in Security Explorer 6.5
Enhancements Manage Permissions and Access Controls for Popular Document Portal Server; Product Demonstrated as Part of Company Activity at Microsoft Tech-Ed 2007
Orlando, Fla. - Microsoft Tech-Ed 2007 (Booth 1013) - June 4, 2007 - ScriptLogic Corporation (www.scriptlogic.com), a leading provider of systems lifecycle management solutions for Microsoft Windows-based networks, today announced enhancements to ScriptLogic's Security Explorer product that specifically address security challenges inherent to Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. IT administrators can rely on Security Explorer 6.5 for SharePoint to improve the security management related to end user access to SharePoint, assisting with regulatory compliance while optimizing IT resources.
The release of Security Explorer 6.5 for SharePoint allows management of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS 07) and Windows SharePoint Services v3 (WSS3), increasingly popular solutions used by enterprises to centrally store and manage documents and files. With the new Security Explorer 6.5 for SharePoint version, IT administrators can explore a tree view of the entire SharePoint site, easily set and search user permissions for SharePoint libraries and files, and back them up and restore security settings as necessary. Finally, Security Explorer 6.5 for SharePoint can edit SharePoint permission levels and SharePoint groups, making it the most comprehensive permission management solution for SharePoint.
"The SharePoint Server solution is quickly emerging as a viable alternative to direct connections to file servers, and for that reason our customers are very interested in a solution that will manage SharePoint security and permission settings," said Nick Cavalancia, vice president of marketing at ScriptLogic. "We've enhanced Security Explorer to bring the full power of the solution to the SharePoint environment. Our customers can rely on the product to save time, enhance security efforts and assist with compliance."
With today's announcement, Security Explorer extends its capabilities to SharePoint Server, dramatically reducing the time and difficulty involved in managing access rights to SharePoint content, and assisting with reporting on file server compliance for regulatory purposes. In addition to the world-class SharePoint security management features, ScriptLogic's Security Explorer manages access controls, services and tasks on Windows servers and desktops. Without Security Explorer, completing these IT tasks is time-consuming, prone to error, and requires a high level of skill. IT professionals use the product for rapid, comprehensive management of user permissions for file systems (NTFS), printers, the registry, file shares, services and scheduled tasks.
"ScriptLogic's Security Explorer 6.5 for SharePoint is a cool product for IT administrators that have deployed or are adopting SharePoint," said Ivan Sanders, a SharePoint consultant with Dimension Solutions. "With a simple point & click interface, my clients can manage their SharePoint permissions by cloning existing permissions, adding users to existing roles or granting new permissions on SharePoint servers. Plus, managing their NTFS, share, registry, printers, and service permissions - as well as backing up and restoring those permissions - is just as easy. Security Explorer is one of the best on the market allowing you to quickly assess and apply permissions throughout SharePoint. This saves time and, more importantly, contributes to other tasks that IT pros are regularly tasked, such as reporting and the many edicts from the board rooms of companies requiring close control over content that employees access."

ScriptLogic company officials will demonstrate Security Explorer 6.5 for SharePoint and other company solutions in the company's booth (No. 1013) at Microsoft Tech-Ed, held this week (June 4-8) at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.
