NextLabs Entitlement Manager for SharePoint provides an integrated and streamlined solution to ensure access is controlled and security is maintained to prevent cyber breaches, maintain regulatory compliance and minimize administrative costs.
Entitlement Manager is natively integrated into SharePoint so the additional security capabilities are transparent to the end user. It provides centrally-managed, policy-based access control across SharePoint sites and servers to enhance the native security model of SharePoint by enabling attribute-based authorization to SharePoint data. Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC) enables powerful rules that authorize users based on multiple factors about the user, the data and the environment, including classification of the file, user status, and information about the device or network location.
An ABAC policy may state, “Allow only Engineers on Project Destiny, located in US or UK, to access parts classified as Project Destiny.” When a user attempts to access a document classified as Project Destiny, no matter where the file is stored in SharePoint, this rule is validated in real-time with no perceptible latency.
