- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Monday, April 26, 2010 TIME: 16:30-17:30 CEST, 10:30am Eastern
In this webinar, we will look at the SharePoint Security and the SharePoint Security Add-On market, with specific focus on what you need to fulfill the GRC requirements in SharePoint environments and how to do that integrated with other information systems.
SharePoint has over the past years grown rapidly and become the most popular Microsoft product of the decade with more than 100 million user licenses sold. Companies experience that SharePoint is easy to install and deploy and business end users find it easy to use. In many organizations SharePoint is moving from being an information and content portal into being a central business platform that provides business processes for the organization. In addition more and more companies also want to utilize their existing SharePoint investments and deploy SharePoint in external portal scenarios for B2B collaboration like partner, customer and supplier portals. However, fast deployment of SharePoint without carefully considering governance for use and administration, comes with a risk and usually results in significant challenges. Companies report about difficulties to overview and control site creation and lack tools for provisioning SharePoint users and manage their permissions.
Is SharePoint thus the big beast which companies can’t tame? Martin Kuppinger will look at the SharePoint Security and the SharePoint Security Add-On market from an analyst perspective, with specific focus on what you need to fulfill the GRC requirements in SharePoint environments and how to do that integrated with other information systems. He will also analyze how changes in SharePoint Security with SharePoint 2010 might make information security and governance easier and what will still be missing then. He will especially focus on how architectures of an integrated approach for information security and governance in the context of Enterprise GRC and IAM initiatives – SharePoint Security should be part of an holistic approach, not done by point solutions.
Afterwards, Omada’s Jesper Urban and Martin Kuhlmann will outline the big picture of SharePoint Governance and drill down into how effective access and site Governance can be implemented for SharePoint environments with multiple portals. Effective Governance of SharePoint require strong processes for managing access and sites and effective reporting tools for compliance and auditing. The web cast will also include a short demonstration that shows how these challenges are addressed by the Omada SharePoint Governance Manager.

IT endpoints are no longer just workstations and servers confined to corporate headquarters, branch offices, customer sites, and data centers, they can now be just about anything located anywhere, from employee homes to airports, hotels and in the cloud. But every endpoint represents a potential entry point for cyber attackers, and needs to be managed.
