ControlPoint by Axceler
ControlPoint gives you the ability to explore, protect, analyze and control your SharePoint environment. Specifically, ControlPoint helps you manage permissions, clean up user accounts, manage sites, analyze site activity and usage, identify problem sites, anticipate site growth, and analyze trends.
With ControlPoint, you now have the ability to identify and manage the growth of sites, perform trend analysis on KPI's, as well as the ability to manage those sites within your own department. The result is you can restore order before your environment gets away from you. ControlPoint also lets you quickly identify problems and, even better, act upon them.
- Establish better control through permissions management, making sure that only the right eyes see the right content.
- Analyze and enforce the governance policies you’ve put in place.
- Easily navigate to sites and perform any action or analysis.
- Quickly identify problems within your SharePoint environment so you can correct them.
- Quick and easy administrative search to find and identify potential problems within particular sites, like those close to quota or those with unique permissions.
- Security trimmed architecture allows administrators to manage sites while only seeing what SharePoint permissions allows.

I use it often
I use ControlPoint daily for reporting, reviewing and changing our SharePoint farm. It's such a relief to have a tool that allows you to make mass changes across the farm. Before we purchased ControlPoint, there were several changes I had to manually apply to each site collection.
Great reporting options
Quickly make changes to all site collections with a few clicks
Manage 1 site or entire Farm
Great piece of software to allow for easy administration of SharePoint. It makes the routine tasks of administrating SharePoint much easier.
- Cost effective
- Great Customer Service
A Relief To All SharePoint Managers
For any middle to large sized organisation who are using either MOSS or WSS this is the SharePoint Management console you have been waiting for.
It really does do the lot and lets you really take control and be a SharePoint Big Brother. If your an IT Manager responsible for SharePoint you have problem been asked what permissions has so and so got or can you give 'so and so A' the same permissions as 'so and so B'. With ControlPoint you can do this with a few clicks.
On its own the permission settings get my vote, but there is much much more. Like the ability to change the logo on all the sites from just one place. So the next time those clever marketing guys say we have just redesigned the company logo to change the shade of green you can make the change on all of the sites in under a minute.
The more you look into ControlPoint 3 the more you realise just what you have been missing and I don't just mean the lovely graphs.
This is one SharePoint application I would happily recommend.
Can move complete sites across servers.
Full useage reports can be sent to managers.
