Kroll Launches SharePoint Recovery Tool

MINNEAPOLIS -- Kroll Ontrack, the leading provider of data recovery and legal technologies products and services, today announced the availability of Ontrack® PowerControls™ 5.1, a new tool compatible with Microsoft® Office SharePoint® Server 2007 that allows IT administrators to easily and efficiently search and restore items from a SharePoint database. Administrators familiar with Ontrack PowerControls software for Exchange can now apply the same time and cost saving recovery capabilities to this widely used enterprise content management (ECM) application.

“While SharePoint Server 2007 has advantageous ECM capabilities, the human management element all too often poses data loss risks to users and companies that rely on this popular data collaboration tool,” said Jim Reinert, vice president of product development, Kroll Ontrack. “By way of accidental deletion or improper editing, the 100 million users of SharePoint Server 2007 often have needs to restore information and documentation from their backups. Regulatory and legal demands further reiterate the importance of archiving or restoring SharePoint data. With Ontrack PowerControls for SharePoint, restoration is no longer a technically difficult and involved process.”
