As Microsoft SharePoint becomes an increasingly critical platform for document and records management, administrators and content owners are faced with the challenge of protecting sensitive content and preventing data breaches. Enter TITUS Security Suite for SharePoint.
TITUS Security Suite for SharePoint enhances security by automatically enforcing fine-grained access control and applying visual labels – promoting strong, consistent data governance for SharePoint content. TITUS products leverage existing document metadata combined with trusted user claims to ensure that security is applied automatically and consistently across all SharePoint content.
“It makes sense for businesses to organize their digital content in the way that is most useful to how they need to create, publish, distribute and consume it, not strictly by its security level,” said Derek Brink, Vice President and Research Fellow for IT Security and IT GRC, Aberdeen Group. “Solutions that are designed to protect sensitive information while also helping to keep it organized and accessible – such as the TITUS SharePoint security products – are approaching the problem in the right way.”
TITUS Security Suite for SharePoint is made up of two products that can be purchased individually or together:
· TITUS Metadata Security automatically controls access to sensitive content and manages permissions based on metadata properties and trusted user claims.
· TITUS Document Policy Manager automatically applies visual labels and converts documents to PDF to enhance security and raise awareness of sensitive content.
“We have been using TITUS Metadata Security for SharePoint for the past number of years to secure the thousands of documents we have housed in SharePoint – from building plans to contracts,” said Will Henderson, IT Director for Winter Park Construction. “We needed a rules-based security product to help us determine who should have access to specific information in SharePoint, and found exactly what we were looking for from TITUS.”
What’s New in SharePoint Security Suite 3.2
The latest version of TITUS Security Suite for SharePoint is focused on making SharePoint a more secure platform for organizations while simplifying SharePoint security for administrators:
· Dynamic Policies – enforce dynamic, fine-grained security in SharePoint with policies based on trusted user attributes (claims) and metadata. With TITUS dynamic policies, organizations can ensure that the right people are accessing the right information at the right time. Dynamic policies can be used to instantly deny access to SharePoint content when a user’s status changes, such as employee resignations or terminations, as well as to block individual group members from accessing sensitive content, even if the group itself has access to the content.
· Centralized Policy Administration – apply TITUS policies across site collections, sites, libraries, or folders using powerful new administration options. Administrators can centrally control policies or delegate administration to business unit managers or site owners.
· Software Development Kit – leverage the TITUS SharePoint Security Software Development Kit (SDK) to easily integrate with existing line-of-business applications and apply security to large and complex SharePoint farms.
· Auditing for Effective Data Governance – support effective data governance and compliance by auditing TITUS administrator and security policy actions. Organizations can track when administrators create, edit, or delete a TITUS policy. They can also track when TITUS sets or changes content permissions, enables user access through dynamic policies, applies visual markings to documents, and converts documents to PDF.

TITUS Security Suite for SharePoint works with Microsoft SharePoint 2013 and 2010 (Server and Foundation) and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007.
