Sitecore’s On-Demand Web Compliance Application Audits Digital Content for Compliance with Regulatory Requirements

Sitecore has announced availability of a new application. The HiSoftware Compliance Sheriff App scans content for privacy, accessibility and website quality issues prior to publishing and reports on violations to ensure compliance with regulatory and other internal policies. By adding this application to Sitecore’s Customer Engagement Platform, organizations can reduce the risk of litigation, fines and penalties, and ensure digital content is in line with privacy guidelines.

Available through the Sitecore App Center – an online marketplace of pre-integrated, on-demand applications, services, and integration solutions developed for Sitecore’s Customer Engagement Platform – Sitecore provides enhanced compliance capabilities that validate web content and applications against standards-based and organization-specific policies for accessibility and privacy. HiSoftware Compliance Sheriff for Sitecore App Center is based on technology from HiSoftware, a leading developer of content-aware compliance and security software.

“The increase of information and transactions on websites and intranets has helped to streamline processes and achieve economies of scale,” said Kurt Mueffelmann, president and chief executive officer, HiSoftware. “However, maintaining compliance of online content is a perpetual risk that escalates as organizations empower more people to post content at a faster rate. With so much information being made available online, the business risk associated with poor compliance is high, and growing. Companies must adopt a comprehensive approach to address content compliance and mitigate risk.”

The HiSoftware Compliance Sheriff App allows organizations to scan content on-demand in Sitecore to ensure compliance with over 75 pre-defined checkpoints built-into the app, including pre-defined checkpoint groups for WCAG 2.0, and select privacy and site quality checks.

The HiSoftware App provides easy to select and configure tests against pre-defined policies – eliminating the need for costly consulting and/or programming resources. It scans content as part of the content development process, and validates compliance against the policies selected. The results on the compliance status of the content tested are immediately displayed within Sitecore. The scan reports provide information on content that has passed, failed, or is flagged with a warning, and provides detailed capabilities that pinpoint the specific issues to help with remediation.
