ESET ESA and SharePoint 2013 Foundation

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I tested ESA with SharePoint 2013 Foundation a few months ago when ESA2 was released. The Installation was possible on SharePoint 2013 Foundation and ist was working as expected. The only thing at this time was, that there was no whitelisting of IP's (needed for internal use). Now whitelisting is possible, but the newest ESA Release can not be installed on Foundation Server. Is there a specific problem regarding the Foundation Version? Is there a Workaround to get it running, because I've always searched for a good solution for my customers but they all have the Foundation version?

 

regards,

Rudolf

Hi Rudolf

 

We do not support Sharepoint foundation. Also we did not support it in the past. This fact is also stated in the Product manual.

It is interesting you was able to make it work.

 

I presume, you are a reseller/partner of ESET. Are you able to provide us via your dedicated channels details about the opportunities you are mentioning? This kind of information will help us better grasp the urgency and prioritize such requirement in the future releases of the product (incl. the feasibility of such requirement).

 

thank you

 

regards.

Hi Vladimir

 

yes I am a Reseller/Partner and ESA was definitly working in SharePoint 2013 Foundation Environment in an a early 2.x version. Therefore I was very disappointed about the limitation. Fact is, that many small and medium business customers use Foundation version although it is discontinued in Sp2016. They often use Foundation with SQL Standard so they get around the database size limit as a cost-effective workaround.

I also reported the problem that it must be possible to implement something like Whitelists for IP Address range because most of the time, users would access SP from inside the domain and the problem was that if you open a Document on SP you have to authenticate again because a second session is created which is ok for external usage.

 

So, now there is a whitelist option integrated but a huge potential group of customers is locked out. I don't think it's because of technical incompatibility. Thats sad because the ESET solution was one of the best in my opinion. Even the Microsoft solution with Azure MFA is very unhandy to setup.

Maybe ESET give it's most important business customer group - small/mid business - a chance to get such a great solution.

Hi Rudolf

 

please ask your local partner or channel manager to contact the Product manager of ESA directly (he would know who is responsible for ESA). Please also share the opportunity details (how big is the opportunity etc.) you are talking about with him, so I can use the data to prioritize the requirement. As I do not want to discuss the specifics in this open forum.

 

Yes, whitelisting issue was added on March 2016.

 

Thanks again for the feedback I really appreciate that you consider ESA one of the best solutions.

Hi Rudolf

It seems, that probably, we will be able to bring support for Microsoft Sharepoint Foundation 2013 in the upcoming ESA release.

Hi Vladimir,

that would be great. I recently had contact with my region partner and he forwarded my suggestion to somebody at ESET but I didn't get a reply yet.

When will the upcoming release be available?

 

regards
