Idera, a leading provider of Microsoft SharePoint administration solutions, today announced the conclusion of its public beta program and the general availability of Idera SharePoint audit. Idera SharePoint audit is a comprehensive SharePoint auditing solution that captures and records activity taking place in SharePoint.  The captured audit trail is stored in a central repository enabling comprehensive reporting and forensic analysis of who is doing what, when and where in a SharePoint environment.

Idera SharePoint audit and Idera SharePoint enterprise manager work hand-in-hand to provide an overall SharePoint security, governance and compliance solution. Idera SharePoint audit enables administrators to simplify audit administration, by automatically turning on auditing for new SharePoint site collections, and configuring specialized auditing at the web application or site collection level. It collects the data needed to verify compliance with regulations and data security requirements such as Sarbanes Oxley (SOX),HIPAA and PCI. Idera SharePoint enterprise manager then ensures security policies are properly applied in SharePoint,  remediating potential security or compliance issues.

The product wraps up its beta program to strong acclaim. “SharePoint audit works great!” said SharePoint System Administrator Ben Adams. “We were testing it primarily for workflow auditing, but we also tested the access auditing and found that both areas work well.”

“SharePoint audit is a natural and powerful complement to our portfolio of SharePoint security and compliance solutions, which help administrators prepare for compliance audits and quickly detect and fix security issues,” said Wayne Washburn, Director of SharePoint Products at Idera.

Idera SharePoint audit is now available and is priced at $4,995 per web front end.  For a limited time, Idera SharePoint enterprise manager and Idera SharePoint audit can be purchased together at the discounted price of $8995 (normally $9990) plus maintenance. Contact for more information.
