The Importance of Collaboration and Intranet Security

Fort Knox, Intranet Security

I recently came across a blog post written by Alexander Wolfe on information week about the top three pros and cons of Team Collaboration Software and Enterprise Social Intranet Tools.  This blog is about his most important point, intranet security.

Alex writes:

Security, security, security. In terms of potential exposure of proprietary data, Enterprise 2.0 is one huge thumb drive. By flattening your organization and making it easier for people to get at information which can help them do their jobs better, you’re also giving bad actors an opportunity to walk that data out the door to competitors. This is one big scary gotcha, and something CIOs will be grappling with for the foreseeable future.

We wholeheartedly agree with you, Mr. Wolfe. That is why MangoApps offers three different intranet security deployment options. You can try out MangoApps Team Collaboration Tool or Social Intranet on Shared Cloud which offers users a choice of 6 Amazon data centers across the world. We also handle all the backups and upgrades.  Alternatively, we also offer private cloud. Like Shared Cloud, this allows you to host your team collaboration from a choice of 6 Amazon data centers across the world and we, of course, manage all backups and upgrades and you can have it on premise. You can read more here.

When it’s absolutely necessary to have the most secure data possible you can move your single tenant database with full access to source code behind your firewall. It doesn’t take talking to more than a couple enterprise-grade CIOs in sectors like healthcare and law firms to realize that a private cloud or behind the firewall solution is a must for enterprise wide adoption. Send us an email or call us and we would be happy to go over all your options and give you a live demo of MangoApps.
