AvePoint, the leader in governance, compliance, and management solutions for social enterprise collaboration platforms, today announced the start of its preview program for AvePoint Perimeter, its mobility solution that ensures business critical Microsoft SharePoint assets are accessed by trusted users, within trusted locations, on trusted devices.
For many organizations, an employee’s workday is no longer confined to inside the walls of company headquarters. Mobile devices and remote access have become vital for productivity, but organizations must still address the countless security challenges presented by mobile collaboration. AvePoint Perimeter combines traditional 2-Factor Authentication (2FA), the organization’s existing device authentication security systems, and location-based controls to enable secure, remote access to SharePoint content from every endpoint.
Organizations can decide which employees should have mobile or remote access to SharePoint content. These trusted users are then granted secure content access from their registered mobile device. AvePoint Perimeter also allows for “short-term access”, which can be given to trusted users without the need for Federation, Active Directory (AD), or SharePoint accounts.
With location-based controls, organizations can also ensure documents are only accessed from known or trusted locations, using Location Services built into today’s mobile devices as well as most modern browsers (Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox).
Verify trusted mobile devices by providing 2-Factor Authentication using either a QR code or an access code, in conjunction with your existing authentication and authorization systems.
“The global workforce is changing – as more employees work outside of the office, some need mobile access while others work remotely, which forces organizations to put a mobility plan together that allows their employees access to their SharePoint deployments without jeopardizing the security of the content,” said Dr. Tianyi (TJ) Jiang, Co-Founder and Co-CEO, AvePoint. “AvePoint Perimeter provides employees with secure mobile or remote access to the content needed to innovate no matter where they are, while giving IT confidence that the information is secure.”
AvePoint has helped more than 10,000 organizations across 63 countries achieve SharePoint success since its founding in 2001. With robust protection, management, compliance, reporting, and migration capabilities, as well as true, global 24/7 live support, AvePoint is the leader in governance, compliance, and management solutions that enable organizations to collaborate with confidence.
