SharePoint Security

Protect your sensitive data in internal and external SharePoint deployments.

Web browsers have become the primary interface for accessing information that drives business activity. Microsoft SharePoint often provides the structure for sharing this information. According to Microsoft, 67% of their enterprise customers have deployed SharePoint within their organization. SharePoint makes it easy to set up websites to share information, and organizations are embracing its collaborative nature; a 2010 report from the Radicati Group indicated that by 2014, SharePoint will have an installed base of 477 million, representing a 31% average annual growth rate.

Many organizations are also deploying SharePoint externally, to share information with partners, contractors, and clients. Granting access and making information available to external users can increase efficiency and productivity. At the same time it also increases business risk to confidential information and intellectual property, not to mention compliance regulations.

End users, both careless and malicious, can leak sensitive information such as financial records, customer data, and intellectual property. Sophisticated malware can compromise web sessions after the data has been decrypted, stealing sensitive information or account credentials as they are entered, transparently redirecting users to hostile sites, and mining the session content. How do you protect sensitive corporate information that’s being shared by internal and external users across a platform such as SharePoint?

Quarri enables anytime, anywhere access to SharePoint without compromising data security.

Quarri enables organizations to protect their most valuable data by delivering and enforcing secure web sessions on demand. Our patented technology prevents malicious and careless internal and external threats from replicating data in transport and in use.

With Quarri Data Safe, you can:

  • Deliver an on-the-fly secure browser session that utilizes a site-specified whitelist of browser extensions and blocks hostile or unnecessary plug-ins.
  • Prevent users from copying, printing, or saving sensitive information to the endpoint, while still allowing users to edit documents and save back to the SharePoint server. In addition to browser rendered content, these security controls also extend to browser-launched document viewers like Adobe Reader or Microsoft Office.
  • Shield sensitive data from keystroke loggers, session hijackers, cache miners and other malware, on managed and unmanaged endpoints
  • Enforce centralized, administrator-defined policies regarding acceptable use.
  • Encrypt session data such as cache, cookies, passwords, and history, and securely delete it all when the browser session is complete.
  • Centrally log users’ browser-related data duplication actions, including copying, saving, and printing, to meet auditing requirements.
