New site module for Cryptzone’s Security Sheriff
Cryptzone has unveiled a new Security Sheriff Site Module . This release adds new capabilities for encrypting, controlling and e-mailing sensitive SharePoint data using Microsoft RMS. Cryptzone explains Security Sheriff controls access to SharePoint content by allowing a wide variety of secure sharing scenarios to empower focused audiences to collaborate without changing item permissions and adding complexity. It provides fine grained security to help organizations and administrators gain control over SharePoint sites and increase ROI. As Cryptzone continues to expand the feature set of its SharePoint line of solutions, the new Site Module incorporates all of the features of the former Site Sheriff product for providing dynamic permissions management into the Security Sheriff suite, adding key new capabilities for encrypting, controlling and emailing sensitive SharePoint data using Microsoft RMS.
Key enhancements to the Security Sheriff Site Module for SharePoint 2010 and 2013 include:
- Microsoft Azure RMS integration—the ability to use Microsoft Azure RMS content protection system (encryption and DRM) has been added to the product to provide the ability to encrypt documents and control the operations users can perform when editing these documents (e.g. print, save as etc.);
- secure e-mail—documents can be securely emailed directly from the SharePoint document library leveraging RMS (recipients can be within or outside the organization);
- user activity logging—record all user activity related to documents/items including access, RMS encryption and Security Sheriff rule changes, providing provides a targeted audit capability that does not suffer from the “flood” issues encountered by standard SharePoint logging;
- separation of roles—the Site Module now offers additional protection for the management of Sheriff security rules by implementing “separation of roles,” allowing a select group of people can be nominated as “rule editors” and a second set nominated as “rule activators” thereby providing a separation of administrative roles (defined in the farm-wide central administration to easily close this security loophole).
