Sentri Uses Axceler Governance Tool for SharePoint Access and Security

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Jul 25, 2012) -   Axceler and Sentri today announced that Sentri is including Axceler's ControlPoint governance tool in their SharePoint Managed Services offering. Sentri's SharePoint Managed Services assist organizations with day-to-day administration, ongoing maintenance, governance, enhancements, patches and updates, and overall performance analysis and tuning so organizations can realize the productivity gains and ROI they expect from SharePoint. Axceler ControlPoint gives organizations the ability to tightly control access to information stored and shared on the Microsoft® SharePoint collaboration platform.

Sentri was recently recognized as 2012 Microsoft East Region Partner of the Year. The company was honored as a partner providing outstanding solutions and services based upon Microsoft technologies, as well as fostering superior customer engagement across the East Region.

"Access and security are primary concerns to our SharePoint customers. Without effective governance, we found that our customers' SharePoint implementations were rapidly becoming unwieldy," said Jason Himmelstein, Sentri's SharePoint Practice Director. "We reviewed several solutions and chose ControlPoint because of their superior governance solution."
