ESET Security for Microsoft SharePoint Server 6—what's new?

Solution

ESET Security for Microsoft SharePoint Server (ESHP) 6 protects Microsoft SharePoint environments from malicious threats and unauthorized users. ESHP 6 supports Microsoft SharePoint Server 2016, 2013, 2010 and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007.

ESHP combines technology used in ESET Endpoint and ESET File Security products to proactively scan servers or nodes running the Microsoft SharePoint infrastructure and notifies the administrator when a problem arises.

What's new in ESET Security for Microsoft SharePoint Security 6?

Support for ESET Remote Administrator 6.4
ESHP 6 can be remotely managed using ESET Remote Administrator (ERA) version 6.4 and later.
 
Added protection layers
The latest ESET protection technologies have been added to ESHP, including:
  • ESET LiveGrid®—Helps to decrease reaction time and performance impact by automatically skipping "whitelisted" files during scanning.
     
  • Advanced Memory Scanner—Active protection for internal memory. Monitors processes and can detect and terminate malware before damage is done.
     
  • Exploit Blocker—Monitors suspicious patterns in existing or running software applications to detect generic exploit attempts.
     
  • Anti-phishing—Inspects the contents of email messages for links or scripts that might mislead users and trick them into visiting fake websites. 
     
  • Device Control—This feature can be configured to block all ports from device access, or to only allow exceptions that meeting previously defined security standards. Useful when attempting to isolate a server from physical access and atypical intrusions (for example, insider attacks and USB-attached hardware key-loggers).
     
  • Special module responsible for inspecting SharePoint storage and safeguarding user access.
ESET License Administrator
ESET License Administrator (ELA) is a standalone portal that allows users to manage license information, seat distribution, and computer inventory in one place.
 
SharePoint content database scan parallelization
In situations where SharePoint farm database storage adds too much overhead time during scanner requests, parallel database queries and scanning in multiple threads can be carried out according to the sequence of incoming files. This can significantly improve the overall time of an on-demand scan. Click here for information about configuring content database scan parallelization.
 
SharePoint content processing rules
New content processing rules allow you to configure how every single object accessed in a given SharePoint structure should be handled. Click here for more information about how to configure content processing rules.
 
Native clustering for multi-node deployments
For typical SharePoint deployments running on multiple servers, workstations can be joined to nodes for automated management of all cluster members. Click here for information on managing clusters.
 
Component-based installation
You can now customize your ESHP installation to only include modules you need, or to ensure optimal server performance and stability.
 
ESET Log Collector
ESET Log Collector is an application that automatically collects information and logs from a computer to help resolve issues more quickly. Click here for more information about ESET Log Collector.
 
Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) provider
The ability to report product-state information and forward logs using standardized framework for accessing extended information in Windows operating systems is now supported by ESHP. This capability helps to bypass one management layer (that is, ESET Remote Administrator) if only basic data monitoring is required.
 
ESET Shared Local Cache extension
ESHP can now utilize the services of ESET Shared Local Cache. ESET Shared Local Cache can help accelerate scanning across local networks without an active cloud reputation link. Click here to learn more about ESET Shared Local Cache.
 
Optional snapshot independence
ESHP allows you to define alternative paths for storing updates and program modules during initial installation so that a machine restored to an earlier machine-state snapshot can utilize untouched updates and avoid large downloads.
 
Hyper-V storage scan
In environments where SharePoint nodes also host Hyper-V machines, it is possible to use ESHP to scan the storage structures of these virtual machines (guests) without having another instance of ESET antivirus products installed.
