MetaVis Feature of the Day: SharePoint Permissions Backup

Unlike for some other objects in SharePoint there is no recycle bin for SharePoint permissions and security group membership. Once permission record is deleted or changed there is no way to roll back the change or at least to peek at how did it look before the modification. To help administrators with this situation MetaVis has an option to backup up and restore SharePoint site, list and item level permissions only without the content as well as browse historical snapshots with backed up permissions. As a compliment to this functionality MetaVis also has an option to backup SharePoint security groups including groups membership with the further ability to browse groups and group membership in the backup snapshots as well as the option to restore groups or group membership to SharePoint sites. All of it without any server side agents and fully compatible with Office 365 and any other hosted SharePoint environment.
