Jasson Walker, Jr. PresidentWith over 9 years of experience in SharePoint integration and administration for a number of large federal government customers, cFocus Software Incorporated (cFocus) has first-hand knowledge of the evolving SharePoint landscape. In the past, cFocus noticed that SharePoint was severely under-utilized as not much more than a glorified shared drive. And customizing SharePoint required long drawn out development processes which were not pocket friendly. To address these challenges, cFocus custom designs nimble and effective SharePoint solutions. “Clients want to move past using SharePoint as glorified shared drive, and instead use SharePoint to ingest data and take specific action on that data—cFocus is an integrator that makes it possible,” states Jasson Walker, Jr., President, cFocus Software Incorporated.
cFocus offers SharePoint as a versatile platform that can be developed and customized exactly to the extent that the customer feels most comfortable. “We do not have a one-size-fits-all approach—that is, we do not offer the same vanilla SharePoint implementation to all of our customers,” remarks Walker, Jr. Instead, the company takes the time to understand the needs of customers, and combines it with its deep knowledge of the available SharePoint services and third party add-ons to create a custom SharePoint solution that meets the customer’s specific requirements, budget, timeframe, and risk tolerance.
“We further help our customers with our unique ability to implement effective SharePoint security and high availability,” says Walker, Jr. While other SharePoint integrators treat SharePoint security as an afterthought, cFocus has extensive experience with SharePoint security hardening. The company has implemented secure SharePoint solutions on Internet-based, unclassified, and classified federal government networks.
cFocus has a thorough understanding of National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), DoD Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP), and Risk Management Framework (RMF) security standards.
We have over 9 years of experience creating enterprise-level SharePoint solutions for our customers
“We are able to design and configure SharePoint solutions that are in compliance with these security standards.”
cFocus has differentiated itself from the competition through its long history of creating efficient SharePoint solutions. “We have over 9 years of experience creating enterprise-level SharePoint solutions for our customers,” extols Walker, Jr. “It is this experience that empowers us to provide specific solutions to our customer’s problems.” The culture of the company is reflected in the name cFocus, which stands for ‘Customer Focused.’ cFocus is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner. cFocus has also partnered with Metalogix, an award-winning SharePoint product company, to deliver high quality SharePoint governance and SharePoint disaster recovery solutions.
Through their insights into the SharePoint platform, their custom SharePoint development skills, and their knowledge of federal government security standards, cFocus plans to create a set of tools that will allow SharePoint admins to easily and effectively implement SharePoint-related security standards. Furthermore, cFocus is hard at work to create easy-to-use tools that allow network administrators to install, scan, and assess the effectiveness of the cyber security features of an organization’s perimeter defenses. “We are in the very early stages of development for both initiatives, but we are excited about the development process we are going through, and we look forward to making further announcements about these tools in the near future,” concludes Walker, Jr.
