In booth #205 at SPTechCon 2012, Idera, a leading provider of solutions for Microsoft SharePoint administration, today announced SharePoint enterprise managerTM4.5. SharePoint enterprise manager 4.5 provides new security and permissions management features, report scheduling and distribution as well as enhanced performance.

The new Security Differencing Engine compares permission settings for any two objects and provides a detailed analysis of differences. Administrators can create baseline security analyses for a site, list, or item to use for comparison at a later date in order to detect changes. This function is critical for SharePoint governance and compliance. The new version also provides enhanced reporting with added export features including the ability to automatically schedule, store and distribute reports in SharePoint or via email.

A powerful web-based solution for SharePoint administration, security and permissions management, SharePoint enterprise manager is part of Idera’s multi-layer SharePoint security and compliance solution, which also includes SharePoint auditTM to provide a complete audit trail of activity within SharePoint and SharePoint encryptTM to protect sensitive content stored in SharePoint.

“Because of the widespread use of SharePoint across different groups in an organization, it can be difficult to track who has access to specific SharePoint data or documents,” said Wayne Washburn, Director of SharePoint Products at Idera. “With SharePoint enterprise manager and its companion products controlling who can do what and where makes auditing and enforcing SharePoint governance and compliance policies easier than ever.”
