In booth #617 at the Microsoft SharePoint Conference 2011, Idera, a leading provider of Microsoft SharePoint management and administration tools, today announced Idera SharePoint audit. Idera SharePoint audit is a comprehensive SharePoint auditing solution that captures and records all audit events, manages the audit data captured in a central repository and provides comprehensive reporting and analytics regarding 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 and compliance solution. Idera SharePoint audit enables administrators to simplify audit administration, automatically turning on auditing for new SharePoint site collections and configuring specialized auditing at the web application or site collection level. Leveraging proven technology acquired from Muhimbi, it collects the data needed to comply with regulations and data security requirements such as Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) and HIPAA. Idera SharePoint enterprise manager then ensures security standards are properly applied in SharePoint by remediating potential security or compliance issues.

“As we started to research what functionality we would add to our SharePoint product portfolio, a powerful SharePoint auditing solution that can audit activity across all versions of SharePoint with minimal performance impact rose to the top of the list,” said Wayne Washburn, Director of SharePoint Products at Idera. “We invite all SharePoint professionals to try SharePoint audit.”  

In related news, Idera also announced SharePoint backup 3.1 and SharePoint diagnostic manager 2.6 today. To learn more go to or visit Idera in booth #617 at the Microsoft SharePoint Conference where the company will be doing informative product demonstrations and hosting giveaways.
