Oct. 28, 2009 - PRLog -- ActiveShareFS 2007 is a Microsoft ASP.NET compliant drop-in software solution for enabling secure inter-institutional collaboration between trusted partners using the Microsoft SharePoint 2007 platform. Product website: .

The ActiveShareFS solutions enables collaboration by enabling secure federated access and Single Sign-On (SSO) in Microsoft SharePoint 2007 server. ActiveShareFS 2007 uses open industry standards such as Shibboleth and SAML for achieving SSO access. SAML is the security assertion markup language industry standard backed by OASIS members.

ActiveShareFS 2007 provides a flexible and scalable solution for enabling secure external authentication in Microsoft SharePoint 2007. In addition, it automatically provisions users into SharePoint from authorized trusted partner institutions based on configured business rules for access. As a result, only trusted users from trusted partner organizations are provisioned into SharePoint and given appropriate level of access to secure parts of the SharePoint server.

Trusted users from remote Shibboleth or SAML Identity Providers are automatically provisioned into SharePoint 2007 server based on configured business rules. Using ActiveShareFS 2007, the Shibboleth/SAML user attributes can be mapped automatically into Sharepoint for enabling access management in SharePoint. Access can be managed based on username, full name, role, affiliation, and other user attributes.

One reason ActiveShareFS solution is so popular is that no software programming is required for integration with Microsoft SharePoint 2007. Just install and configure the ActiveShareFS software and you are ready to go!!
