Axceler Launches ControlPoint 3 for Microsoft SharePoint Administration

New Features Include Proactive Alerting, Moving Sites, and Scheduled Analysis

WOBURN, MA--(Marketwire - April 27, 2009) - Axceler, the global leader in administration software for collaborative platforms, today announced ControlPoint 3, the newest version of the fastest growing SharePoint administration product for Microsoft SharePoint. ControlPoint 3 delivers new capabilities so you can be proactive about your SharePoint administration, including alerting, moving sites, policy management, and scheduled analysis. Experts say that the best way to avoid future problems is by thinking ahead and putting a solid, best-of-breed SharePoint infrastructure in place. ControlPoint 3, as part of that infrastructure, can help you avoid the impact as well as the costs of violating your governance policies. ControlPoint 3 is the only administration software that seamlessly lets you analyze and enforce SharePoint permissions, analyze activity storage and content, clean up user accounts, move content within farms or between farms, enforce policies and audit SharePoint environments.

ControlPoint 3 automatically alerts you when any changes are made in your environment, such as changing SharePoint permissions or adding and deleting sites. "With ControlPoint, I feel better knowing about any changes in my environment immediately," said Karen Floyd, City of Charlotte, NC. "Now I can react appropriately before problems can fester."

ControlPoint 3 also lets you move site collections, sites, and lists within a farm or across farms. "The ability to move sites is critical for us," said Mike Herrity, Twynham Schools. "We often move content across departments or from test to production environments, so this will save us a huge amount of SharePoint administration time."

ControlPoint 3 also gives you control over your SharePoint configurations to ensure they stay within your governance policies, including site themes, search settings, and permissions. With ControlPoint 3, you can also run any analysis on a pre-defined schedule and then distribute it, proactively and regularly measuring results and sharing with others such as compliance officers.
