Metalogix Enables Secure Transfers Of SharePoint Content For Government Agencies

By - Source: Metalogix

Metalogix, provider of management tools for Microsoft SharePoint, Exchange, and Office365, announced the availability of Metalogix Replicator Cross Domain Edition, which can securely transfer live data between government agency networks of varying security levels. Transfers of this kind between SharePoint networks was typically done using USB, DVD, or CD removable media. New Federal security guidelines now prohibit this type of data transfer.

 "We’ve seen an aggressive spike in insider threats and data leaks from within the government due to outdated methods of handling sensitive content," said Steven Murphy, CEO, Metalogix. "Replicator Cross Domain Edition was purpose-built to help government agencies mitigate potential leaks and insider threat risks by eliminating the need for removable media and manual methods when transferring SharePoint content."

Replicator Cross Domain Edition was developed in collaboration with the U.S. Defense Informations Systems Agency (DISA) and is capable of automated, two-way transfer of live data between Department of Defense (DOD) Nonsecure IP Router Network (NIPRNET) and Secure IP Router Network (SIPRNET) domains with data guard blocking, auditing and redacting of documents. Replicator Cross Domain Edition works between Restricted, Compartmentalized, Top Secret, Secret, Sensitive But Unclassified, and Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) networks.

Replicator Cross Domain Edition can work with any version of SharePoint 2007, SharePoint 2010 or SharePoint 2013, enabling customers to sync data among SharePoint networks regardless of which version is installed on the server. Synchronization of content can be controlled based on compliance rules, permission management or individual agency security policies. All transfers are logged, allowing administrators to view SharePoint synchronization activity.

"Insider information leaks will continue to grow into one of the costliest threats to government content security and management," said Major General (Retired) Steve Smith, Security Technology Advisor to Metalogix. "To answer those threats, government agencies need smarter ways to minimize the use of removable media as well as provide redaction, non-repudiation and audit capabilities."
