Extending SharePoint’s functionality to create a more secure, manageable environment.

Key features include single sign-on capabilities and the ability to access a single, real-time view of identity data from multiple data stores and locations.

SharePoint is the industry-leading business intelligence portal. It enables organizations to organize, share and collaborate information within a web portal environment.

If deployed without the appropriate measures, however, administration of multi-forest SharePoint environments can quickly become a challenge. This leads to a mismanaged deployment with increased cost, complexity and security risks.

VIS for SharePoint enables organizations to effectively deploy and maintain SharePoint in a secure, manageable fashion, saving them time and greatly reducing the total cost of administration.


VIS for SharePoint is built on Optimal IdM’s flagship Virtual Identity Server platform. The Virtual Identity Server has been designed exclusively in .NET to leverage your existing investment in Microsoft infrastructure, while extending the capabilities of Active sharepointDirectory and SharePoint.
