BELMONT, CA--(Marketwire - May 1, 2012) - Actiance, helping organizations benefit from new forms of communications and collaboration, announced today the release of Vantage for Microsoft SharePoint 2010, a new addition to the Actiance security and compliance platform. The solution allows enterprises to create granular policy controls for content inspection, real-time alerts and role-based workflow for supervisory review, logging and archiving. For organizations in regulated industries, including financial services, legal and healthcare, this is a critical step to reduce risk and ensure corporate compliance with regulatory, legal and corporate governance rules.

"SharePoint has become pervasive as a collaboration platform across the enterprise, but with this comes the same information management and compliance challenges facing other business critical applications," said Katey Wood, senior analyst of Information Management, ESG. "As with email, companies need efficient tools to help manage the lifecycle of SharePoint content from cradle to grave. Actiance's enhanced information management capabilities address these requirements, ensuring compliance and minimizing exposure by monitoring, preserving and discovering SharePoint content."

Collaboration tools, such as SharePoint, are changing the way enterprises conduct business, enabling the rapid creation and distribution of content and materials inside and outside organizations. Extending SharePoint features to monitor and manage publishing activities with contextual capture of content along with the creation of custom policies can help ensure compliance with corporate governance requirements and industry-specific regulations.

"More and more businesses are choosing SharePoint as their enterprise collaboration solution," said Michal Gideoni, Group Product Manager, SharePoint Product Management at Microsoft Corp. "Partners like Actiance support organizations in managing the growing amount of sensitive data being housed in SharePoint."

The Actiance platform provides robust security-enhanced compliance and management capabilities across a wide range of communication and collaboration systems. Enterprises can apply tailored polices and controls to comply with specific industry regulation, corporate governance, or legal-hold. The platform also offers proactive features to monitor activity, including real-time alerts based on content detected and role-based reviews that include search capabilities and workflow review. Actiance users can both lower the costs needed to comply with regulatory, legal and corporate governance rules, as well as simplify policy control for the platform.

"According to Actiance's Annual Survey, more than 75 percent of respondents use or plan to use SharePoint as their primary enterprise collaboration platform. Actiance is able to ensure that organizations feel confident in collaborating in real time without the fear of disclosing sensitive or confidential material," said Kailash Ambwani, CEO, of Actiance. "Vantage makes the onramp to compliant collaboration a more seamless experience for both end users and compliance teams ensuring organizations meet their supervisory and archiving requirements."
