In the latest version of Secured eCollaboration, Cryptzone has launched technology which allows organisations to search SharePoint to find encrypted content.
Delivering secure content without impeding searchability and collaboration, the company said that this allows encrypted content on SharePoint can only be searched and discovered by authorised users.
Utilising sophisticated approaches to key management and process whitelisting, Cryptzone said that as well as respecting the principle of the separation of duties, this prevents SharePoint administrators from viewing protected content. With Secured eCollaboration installed, authorised users are able to perform search operations from within Microsoft SharePoint and find encrypted content that matches the search criteria entered.
Anders Hansson, product portfolio manager at Cryptzone, said: “Traditionally, SharePoint’s search functionality leaves files encrypted at rest undiscoverable. This requires organisations to make trade-offs between their security posture, user productivity and convenience. By developing Encrypted Content Search in our Secured eCollaboration solution, we get around this deficiency, without compromising security.”
The company claimed that the Secured eCollaboration rule-based engine can now control SharePoint file permissions, making it possible to create rules that significantly extend SharePoint’s native access controls. It offers automated content-aware access control so that access can be defined and based on content, meta-data or other file attributes.
Also, access can be assigned to individual documents, so if inadvertently moved to an unsecured document library, they still retain their assigned user access rights and remain fully protected.
