SharePoint’s flexibility is powerful. It allows organizations to use the platform in numerous ways for numerous purposes. But at its core, the goal of a SharePoint site is to increase collaboration through increased access to data.
With the increase in data availability, it’s more important than ever for admins and security teams alike to understand when sensitive information is being stored on SharePoint sites and who has access to that data. Native tools fall short of accomplishing this, but STEALTHbits can help.
Discover Sensitive Data
Identify where sensitive information exists and automate remediation
Cleanup Open Access
Detect and secure sites exposed to inappropriate open access to ensure only the right people can access information.
Identify Data Owners
Empower the business to make decisions about access. Automatically assign data owners to SharePoint sites for self-service entitlement reviews.
In a recent survey conducted by Dimensional Research and commissioned by Preempt, 65% of respondents were concerned about stolen data and abuse of admin credentials.
91% of respondents said insiders have access to systems they shouldn't, and 70% said they're unable to monitor privileged user activities effectively.
-The Growing Security Threat from Insiders
Getting SharePoint under control starts with insight. You need to understand the scale of your SharePoint environment. You need to understand what content is being exposed and how. You need to understand who has access and who is granting that access. Most of all, you need to get a process in place to ensure that the business users making the SharePoint explosion happen are also taking responsibility for securing this powerful new platform correctly.
Identify Data Owners
Data belongs to the business, not to IT and no one knows better who should have access to what than business owners. STEALTHbits uses a number of different criteria to identify the owners of SharePoint sites. Automated workflows confirm that the identified owner is the correct choice and associate the owner to the resource.
