HiSoftware Compliance Sheriff for Web Content Compliance Automation

Your Unmanaged Content is Putting Your Organization at Risk

The Web has taken over as the primary method for delivering information to customers, constituents, patients, partners, employees, shareholders and more. The amount of data in the digital universe is staggering with a 40% projected growth in global data generated per year.* This wealth of information from multiple input points can quickly spin out of control and make it a potential breeding ground for vulnerabilities. You probably have more hidden risk than you realize and it’s growing exponentially every day as content is added, uploaded and changed. Ask your key stakeholders; privacy and policy managers, IT staff, marketing and web managers to assess:

  • How vulnerable are you today?
  • Can you identify inaccessible content, confidential information, inappropriate language, or other governance violations?
  • How do you ensure that content starts and stays compliant?

HiSoftware Provides a Repeatable, Practical and Measurable Solution for Web Compliance

Take back control of your content by translating your paper-based governance policies into a repeatable and enforceable process using HiSoftware’s content-aware compliance automation solution. Enforce corporate guidelines and standards within websites, intranets, extranets, web applications and social computing sites to stay ahead of the explosion of content. HiSoftware Compliance Sheriff Web provides users with a means to monitor online content for potential compliance issues across digital environments – keeping information safe, appropriate and within regulatory guidelines. Compliance Sheriff Web automates content compliance to address a wide range of Web governance issues including Web accessibility, privacy factors, site quality and brand integrity.

As the solution scans and identifies areas of risk or detects specific policy violations, automated email notifications alert site administrators and any other manager affected by the specific content – accessibility managers, privacy officers, marketing managers, etc. – to potential issues so they can be addressed quickly.

Content Compliance Standards for:

Web Accessibility

How many users with disabilities turn away from your public and intranet websites and due to accessibility issues? You could be alienating as much as 20% of your employees, customers and prospects. Automating Web accessibility compliance with applicable standards including WCAG, Section 508, AODA, and Canada’s Web Accessibility Standard, to name a few, can increase participation while reducing costs and the chance of litigation.


Unregulated online content can compromise personal and health information (PII/PHI) such as passwords, credit cards and HIPAA identifiers. Reduce risk and cost through automated enforcement of your content privacy rules.

OPSEC Information Assurance

Protect confidential and secure information: trade secrets, insider information, M&A, redacted content and OpSec (Operational Security) information. Validate for compliance with data and information security guidelines and identify problem or exposed security areas. Measure and manage risk and compliance across the organization; and allocate resources appropriately.

Brand Integrity & Site Quality

Make a great impression online - every minute of every day. Your public website is the face you show to the world. Broken links, typos, slow pages or inappropriate language reflect directly on your brand image. Improper SEO keywords don’t help either. Build brand integrity, consistency and quality into your site with Compliance Sheriff.
