Axceler, a leader in enterprise collaboration governance, administration and migration solutions, today announced Axceler ViewPoint for SharePoint, a first of its kind free community tool that enables administrators as well as business users to easily see and report SharePoint permissions. With this new tool, SharePoint administrators and site owners gain detailed visibility into who has permissions to what content, enabling a deeper understanding of how employees are using the platform.

Additionally, Axceler announced the availability of ControlPoint Change Manager, which allows businesses to quickly respond to policy and organization changes, with minimal disruption to employee productivity.

Axceler will be demonstrating both ControlPoint Change Manager and ViewPoint for SharePoint at SPTechCon in San Francisco from March 5-6, 2013 in Booth 507.

ViewPoint for SharePoint
In a recent survey of SharePoint administrators, 60.8 percent named managing security and permissions the top challenge around managing SharePoint within their organization. The new ViewPoint for SharePoint is a free community tool that easily streamlines how content managers and SharePoint professionals evaluate SharePoint permissions. With a single view of permissions, SharePoint administrators are armed with the most up-to-date information to swiftly make data-driven platform management decisions and improve how the business uses SharePoint.

“While businesses understand the value of collaboration platforms, permissions is all too often an afterthought or ignored entirely,” said Claudine Bianchi, CMO, Axceler. “Our new ViewPoint for SharePoint enables SharePoint administrators and site owners to easily visualize SharePoint permissions and understand the reach and accessibility of business content. With this new tool, administrators can simplify permissions reporting, while still giving users the level of access needed to efficiently and accurately make decisions.”
Axceler’s ViewPoint for SharePoint is available for free download now and includes the following features:
• Specific insight around how many SharePoint users have access within each permission level
• An immediate snapshot of the specific users within each SharePoint group, ensuring the group includes the appropriate individuals
• An understanding of how individual and group permissions were granted to quickly pinpoint opportunities to improve or adjust user access
• An intuitive dashboard to easily visualize permissions and create personalized reports on permissions settings
