Our company is moving away from files shares and moving more towards sharepoint. Does the LANGuardian have the ability to decode this traffic?

We have successfully created new reports for SharePoint activity for some of our customers by capturing the IP addresses or hostnames for their main Sharepoint servers.

They did not require any new decoding engine as we got the information from our web reporting engine which we already have.

Such reports are as follows:

Sharepoint :: All file activity.
Allows you to report on all file activity associated with all users. You can also use the username filter to focus on a particular user.

SharePoint :: All Microsoft Office Files With Usernames.
Focuses on files with the extensions .doc, .xls, .ppt, or .pdf and again you can run this report for a specific user via the username report filter.

SharePoint :: Top Users.
We can report on traffic associated with the clients/usernames and these reports can be very useful for identifying the top users accessing SharePoint across the WAN connections based on the amount of data they are generating.

We are doing further work on this protocol and can work with you to see how much visibility we have to this sharepoint traffic.

See attached for some sample reports also.
