AvePoint unveils Compliance Guardian for SharePoint
AvePoint has released Compliance Guardian, which is designed to ensure information is available and accessible to the people who should have it and protected from those who should not.
AvePoint says its new offering bridges the gap between compliance, IT and the business to begin and maintain a constructive, productive and compliant environment. Further, it allows organizations worldwide to implement a robust risk management framework that supports key compliance and risk areas, including:
Accessibility--Organizations can easily validate their IT systems, applications and content against standards-based and custom organizational policies for accessibility. The software’s accessibility features allow users to test against regulatory requirements including Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act Amendments, Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 1.0 and 2.0, as well as other standards-based accessibility requirements.
Operational security--Compliance Guardian is said to help close operational and security gaps caused by inadvertent mishandling of data or relaxed permissions controls for information stored on the Web or internal systems, ensuring no information that is sensitive in nature can be inadvertently exposed or taken advantage of by a malicious third party, drastically mitigating risks of accidental breaches.
Privacy--The software scans and reports on enterprise content for sensitive data including personally identifiable information (PII), protected health information (PHI) as well as secure sensitive information (SSI); tags or classifies that content appropriately; and takes action to protect your environment from privacy violations by deleting, quarantining, securing or routing content to a more appropriate location.
Site quality--Compliance Guardian helps organizations comply with branding, usability and look-and-feel guidelines to maintain and ensure optimal user adoption, says AvePoint.
