Axiomatics Launches Dynamic Authorization Extension for Microsoft® SharePoint
European Launch in Collaboration with Leading Consultancy, Knowit Secure AB
STOCKHOLM – May 15, 2018 – Axiomatics, the leader in fine-grained dynamic authorization, has collaborated with Knowit Secure AB (KNOW:STO), a consultancy firm that creates unique customer values by offering digital and cross-functional solutions, to release the Axiomatics Extension for SharePoint. This functionality facilitates businesses’ use of a policy-based approach to SharePoint access control.
The extension integrates the Axiomatics Policy Server into existing SharePoint sites to provide dynamic Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC) to documents and data managed within SharePoint.
SharePoint is one of the most popular enterprise document management system and collaboration platforms on the market. Although document-level permissions are available, they require time-consuming ongoing manual maintenance, and are not suited to large deployments. As enterprise deployments expand, this creates a burden on SharePoint and IT administrators alike, and becomes increasingly significant when sensitive data and critical assets are stored within SharePoint documents.
“A growing need for centralized access control in SharePoint has emerged to control access to documents containing intellectual property and regulated data,” said Gerry Gebel, vice president of business development at Axiomatics. “Our SharePoint extension will reduce time spent managing authorization and enable centralized reporting to ease the administration and management burden, help prove regulatory compliance and simplify ongoing audit tasks.”
The Axiomatics Extension for SharePoint was developed in collaboration with Knowit Secure. By extending dynamic fine-grained access control using an Attribute Based Access Control framework into SharePoint, customers can implement one central regulatory framework for information access, for all documents stored in SharePoint. It allows organizations to evolve the access control to a hybrid approach that extends, not excludes, legacy SharePoint access control.
“We collaborated with Axiomatics to develop the Axiomatics Extension for SharePoint, designed to leverage the power and flexibility of Axiomatics’ Dynamic Authorization. Customers are seeing great value in the ability to manage SharePoint with a policy-based approach.” said Henrik Johansson, IAM Evangelist & IT Security architect at Knowit Secure.
The Axiomatics Policy Server is the fastest, comprehensive dynamic externalized authorization solution available on the market, known for its ability to easily connect to other ecosystems. This extension complements native SharePoint access control by adding ABAC capabilities where needed to reduce the SharePoint administrative burden, and to simplify the access management process. The policy-based framework within this extension helps eliminate toxic combinations and avoid stale and silent permissions.
