Interesting SharePoint Security Company, CipherPoint Software

An interesting young company that we've run across in the SharePoint security space is CipherPoint Software. CipherPoint's products secure sensitive content in SharePoint sites, and by doing so, they solve compliance issues related to content regulated by various compliance regulations, including GLBA, PCI DSS, HIPAA, and others. There's a natural connection here to what we do at WAND with SharePoint taxonomies, in that many kinds of content that are identified in taxonomies could require special security controls, including encryption. This is where CipherPoint comes in, and their key management console can apply different security policies depending on the compliance regulation.

If you are concerned about the security of your SharePoint content, or if compliance is an issue for you, you can check them out at www.cipherpointsoftware.com.
