MetaVis Announces Office 365 and SharePoint Permissions Management Tool

MetaVis Security Manager Allows Organizations to Easily View and Manage Security Permissions Across Multiple SharePoint Environments

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - Aug 11, 2011) - MetaVis Technologies, Inc. today announced MetaVis Security Manager for SharePoint and Office 365, which allows users to analyze and manage security permissions, groups/users and levels across multiple on-premise or hosted SharePoint site collections and farms. With MetaVis Security Manager, SharePoint administrators will be able to see and manage what a user has access to and who can access specific sites; identify orphaned users; and compare or synchronize permissions across SharePoint 2010, 2007 or Office 365, including hybrid environments.

MetaVis Security Manager is the first permissions management tool for Microsoft Office 365 which launched in June. Since the solution is totally agentless, users can manage hosted SharePoint environments such as Office 365 in the same way as on-premise systems. MetaVis now offers a complete set of security, migration, classification and change management tools for organizing content in Office 365.

"Legacy permissions management tools rely on server-side installations or agents on the SharePoint server or even a dedicated server, making them hard to install. More importantly, they are not designed to work across hosted environments," said Steve Pogrebivsky, CEO and Co-founder of MetaVis Technologies. "MetaVis Security Manager is designed to simplify permissions management and reporting without installing anything on your SharePoint servers. We are providing customers with an alternative solution to quickly and affordably manage SharePoint permissions and enforce security policies."

MetaVis Security Manager deploys in just a few minutes and takes full advantage of standard SharePoint APIs eliminating the need for custom server side controls, SQL Server access or elevated privileges. MetaVis ensures that SharePoint permissions management and security policies are assigned properly and offers reporting capabilities to help identify potential security risks. Security trimming is built in so that users are only able to view and manage objects that they have rights to in SharePoint.

MetaVis Security Manager allows user to:

  • Manage Permissions - by making it easy for administrators to set up, delete, transfer duplicate and enforce SharePoint permissions across multiple sites or farms in minutes.
  • Reduce SharePoint administration costs - by allowing administrators to quickly administer security and permission policies across sites, folders or lists in bulk that traditionally can be difficult and time-consuming to implement.
  • Simplify SharePoint Management - by providing complete control over security permissions even at the item-level.
  • Maintain Compliance standards - by allowing administrators to compare permission levels to discover potential compliance problems and address them immediately.
  • Improved SharePoint Visibility - with detailed reports focused on security.

Built on MetaVis Information Architecture Platform, Security Manager operates seamlessly with the MetaVis family of products for SharePoint migration, design, change management and classification. Security Manager supports SharePoint 2010, 2007, BPOS and Office 365.
