Governance and compliance software specialist AvePoint announced Compliance Guardian Service Pack (SP) 1 to help protect sensitive business data.
Compliance Guardian allows enterprise organizations to scan, audit, and report on data within their enterprise file systems, websites, web systems, web applications, and SharePoint sites. Compliance Guardian not only assesses Microsoft Office files, HTML files and PDFs, but can also evaluate images, AutoCad files, zip files, and hundreds of other file types for privacy and information security issues.
The latest version technology is said to mitigate risk and protect sensitive data with support for file shares, websites, systems and applications, and Microsoft SharePoint.
The firm said the offering enables firms to protect IT environments from harmful information leaks or misuse while ensuring that all activities and information residing in those environments are compliant, accessible and manageable.
"In today’s business world, organizations have a tremendous amount of sensitive data that they need to keep secure, compliant, and accessible. Due to these complex requirements, some compliance officers are concerned with enterprise collaboration platforms within their organizations because they fear data leakage," said Dana Simberkoff, VP of risk management and compliance, AvePoint. "AvePoint’s Compliance Guardian provides an easy to use, centralized management console and reporting system for IT risk managers, privacy officers, security officers and line of business owners to ease those fears."
The new version is said to offer enhanced capabilities for file systems compliance and web compliance; out-of-the-box and customisable algorithms to determine raw risk, stepped risk, and weighted risk across enterprise content; and site quality/link validation reports that help ensure content complies with requirements for site quality and brand management, and maintains a consistent look and feel across an organisation.
