Axceler Launches ControlPoint 3.5 for Microsoft SharePoint Server Administration

New Capabilities Bring More Control and Increased Security to SharePoint

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - October 19, 2009) - Axceler, the global leader in administration software for collaborative platforms and a Microsoft Certified Gold Partner, today announced ControlPoint 3.5, the latest version of the award-winning administration product for Microsoft SharePoint. By giving SharePoint managers the ability to measure performance against SharePoint governance policies, ControlPoint 3.5 helps enterprises adopt and embrace Microsoft SharePoint more than ever before. ControlPoint 3.5 boasts powerful new capabilities that give enterprises more control over their configuration and deployment of SharePoint while strengthening their SharePoint security. ControlPoint 3.5 will be unveiled for the first time at Axceler's booth #300 during SharePoint Conference 2009, October 19 - 22 in Las Vegas, NV. ControlPoint 3.5 is also available for download on Axceler's website.

"ControlPoint has quickly become the gold standard in SharePoint administration," said Errin O'Connor, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, EPC Group. "The release of ControlPoint 3.5 brings even more powerful administration capabilities and gives my clients much more control over their SharePoint infrastructures. Since ControlPoint 3.5 improves SharePoint management across the enterprise, it helps increase the adoption and use of SharePoint applications by individuals and companies everywhere."

Among the many new capabilities, ControlPoint 3.5 gives you more control over the configuration of your SharePoint environment. Specifically, ControlPoint makes it easier to be proactive about managing your SharePoint content. Now, from one interface, you can analyze how your SharePoint content databases are utilized and, using ControlPoint 3.5, you can reorganize, optimize, and re-architect SharePoint as your needs change and evolve.

ControlPoint 3.5 also enables you to manage SharePoint Features so you can have clearer insight into where features are being used or not being used. You can quickly activate or deactivate those SharePoint Features across any set of sites or site collections, avoiding the need to go into each site independently, while dramatically saving IT resources.

ControlPoint 3.5 extends its leading permissions management capabilities to now manage SharePoint groups making it easier to ensure permissions consistency across sites within your farm. ControlPoint 3.5 further strengthens your SharePoint security with the ability to backup and restore SharePoint permissions for any set of sites or site collections, even down to the item level. Additionally, you can duplicate site security to ensure that permissions are set consistently across a number of sites anywhere in your farm.
