DocPoint Solutions, Inc., a leader in the implementation, customization, training and support of SharePoint solutions and its integrated suite of products, and CipherPoint Software, Inc., the global leader in securing collaboration environments, are enhancing their efforts to improve data security within government agencies’ SharePoint deployments. With CipherPoint’s solutions now on DocPoint’s GSA Schedule 70, federal organizations can more easily deploy a secure, comprehensive and effective SharePoint enterprise content management (ECM) solution. CipherPoint’s security solutions identify, encrypt, control and audit access to sensitive and regulated data across on-premises and cloud file sharing collaboration systems.
“Many of today’s federal agencies are standardizing on Microsoft SharePoint to collaborate on information across the enterprise,” said Scott Swidersky, president, DocPoint Solutions. “At the same time, data security continues to be a chief priority. In order to simultaneously support our government clients’ ECM and data security needs, DocPoint has brought CipherPoint onto our GSA Schedule to give these organizations a single place to turn to for a complete ECM solution.”
Since establishing a strategic partnership in 2014, DocPoint and CipherPoint have been working together to add value to the government sector’s SharePoint ECM investments. The combination of CipherPoint’s solutions and DocPoint’s breadth of SharePoint offerings and expertise – including third-party tool integrations, customizations, and training and support services – gives government agencies the opportunity to safeguard their most sensitive data while improving their efficiency and productivity.
Most recently, CipherPoint added Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC) that allows organizations to dynamically apply different access decisions according to user (subject) and information (object) metadata. The control also includes the ability to filter library contents such that users only see the existence of files for which they are able to open. This functionality is in addition to the capabilities CipherPoint has always had to restrict content views up to and including the IT Administrative staff.
“Increasingly stringent regulations, such as the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS), have placed more pressure on government agencies to safeguard sensitive information from both inside and outside threats,” said Mike Fleck, CEO, CipherPoint. “The synergy between CipherPoint and DocPoint will help the federal sector maintain compliance with such standards for years to come.”
