Idera and Epok Team Up to Provide End-to-End SharePoint Security

Leaders in Intranet and Extranet Security Work Together to Secure SharePoint

HOUSTON, TX and BETHESDA, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 06/02/09 -- Idera, a leading provider of management and administration solutions for Microsoft Windows Servers, and Epok, a leader in the access control and authorization management software industry, today announced that they are teaming up to provide SharePoint administrators with end-to-end SharePoint security. With the security tools in Idera's SharePoint admin toolset(TM) and the Epok Edition for Microsoft SharePoint, SharePoint administrators can rest easy knowing their vital SharePoint content is safe when accessed both internally and externally.

"SharePoint is a powerful and popular environment for sharing data and Idera's goal is to make it easy to manage, administer and secure," said Rick Pleczko, President and CEO of Idera. "By partnering with Epok, our joint customers now have the tools required to ensure the complete security of their SharePoint content."

Idera's SharePoint admin toolset provides two essential security tools:

--  Security Reporter - Enables SharePoint administrators to find out who
    can access SharePoint content including site collections, sites, libraries,
    folders, lists, list items and documents.
--  Permissions Analyzer - Provides powerful analysis enabling SharePoint
    administrators to establish what content a user has access to and what
    gives them the rights to access that content.

Epok edition for Microsoft SharePoint is the industry-leading product for securely extending SharePoint to extranet users such as partners, distributors, and customers. Epok products provide authorization, user management and content control for SharePoint farms, and enhance network security by integrating with Microsoft Forefront security products such as ISA server and Intelligent Application Gateway. Epok provides SharePoint administrators with the following benefits:

--  Security and Compliance
        --  Integrate business agreements with every user activity
        --  Audit across site collections from one centralized location
        --  Watermark sensitive documents
--  Ease of Provisioning and User Management
        --  Empower site owners to manage extranet users and access rights
        --  Delegate user management to external partners

"SharePoint deployments naturally migrate from intranet configurations to include extranet users such as customers and partners. This raises the security, compliance and user management challenges that Epok's products address," said Fred Giordano, President and Chief Executive Officer of Epok. "Our partnership with Idera will provide their large base of customers a proven path to extend their SharePoint sites to extranet users."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
