Ensim Corporation, a private, public, and hybrid cloud infrastructure management tool, today announced significant enhancements in its SharePoint Manager. As part of Ensim Unify Enterprise Edition’s suite of integrated tools, SharePoint Manager supports both SharePoint 2007 and SharePoint 2010, providing enhanced provisioning, management automation, and compliance capabilities for Microsoft’s SharePoint Server 2010.

Managing the functionality of SharePoint while effectively meeting security and compliance requirements has become increasingly critical, particularly within large organizations including information walling capabilities. Ensim Unify SharePoint Manager ensures that when users are provisioned and managed, business and policy objectives are met on a secure, cost-effective basis.

Key enhancements for Ensim Unify SharePoint Manager include:

  • Provisioning: Automated provisioning of SharePoint sites, including site collection and sub-sites - allows administrators to centralize administration of SharePoint and implement chargeback mechanisms if required

  • Permissions management: Managing user permissions on various SharePoint sites enables users to meet compliance goals by providing an accurate picture of who has access to each area

  • SharePoint group management: This allows employees to add themselves to SharePoint groups based on IT policy
