Metadata Security for SharePoint by TITUS
Metadata Security allows administrators to protect documents in SharePoint based on their metadata properties. Access to documents, and permissions associated with documents can be based on the document’s metadata properties.
It allows administrators to build access rules based on the document’s assigned metadata properties. These metadata rules can then be assigned to a document library or content type. Metadata Security can automatically produce specific permissions for each document in the library, without having to do tedious item-level permission assignment.
Because per-document security is much easier to set up, administrators can easily create a Document Library that different groups of users can share. Each group can have different and specific types of permissions.
- Protects files based on SharePoint content type
- Protects files based on standard or customized SharePoint columns (metadata)
- Protects files based on the file type (file extension)
- Enables metadata security rules to be easily changed
- Automatically applies permissions to files based on the file’s metadata properties (columns)
- Secures any type of file based on metadata
- Metadata security leverages standard users and groups from Active Directory

Simple SharePoint Security Management by Users
We were in a situation where we were migrating a legacy application over to SharePoint, but the documents could be targeted to one or more of 400 different security groups.
With over 7000 documents and 400 security groups needed, security management using standard sharepoint would be impossible.
This software enabled us to program the rules, load in the documents, and then allow the users to simply set the corrent metadata, which allowed us to successfully use SharePoint!
Dealing with Titus was amazing as well, they were able to quickly help with any issues that arose, as well as introuduce new features into the software.
Very dedicated and responsive support team
Simplify SharePoint document management
Our SharePoint implementation had started and stopped a few times, always with the same issue; how would we manage documents for the various departments and branches in our company without creating either a security risk or a management nightmare. Each approach we came up with led towards one of those risks. Metadata Security allowed us to use a single document management library that with a few additional metadata elements allows us to maintain security at the document level without burdening IT staff or the end user with a laborious publishing process.
With one security rule we allow the creator of a document to select the user group or groups who have Read, Modify or Full Control of the document.
As the MetaData Securty can be applied to any SharePoint list it has also allowed us simplfy our design and improve the end user experience by presenting only relevant information; again, with one simple security rule allowing Read, Modify or Full control access.
Responsive and effective support.
