SharePoint Collaboration: Secure and Mobile

Collaboration tools such as Microsoft SharePoint make it even easier for sensitive enterprise information to be shared, but this also increases the risk of unauthorized access, data loss, or data exposure. Market trends in collaboration, mobility, and cloud-based deployments have further exacerbated this inherent tension.

In Aberdeen’s research, SharePoint users were found to be leaders in their use of complementary security technologies such as data classification, data loss prevention, and encryption. But they were also found to be laggards in establishing who has accountability for authorizing access, and in investing in awareness and training for data creators, owners, and consumers.

This Analyst Insight describes the basic steps toward establishing a more secure and mobile SharePoint environment, along with solution selection considerations specifically for access to SharePoint from mobile devices.
