Microsoft SharePoint Security

Improved Productivity, Increased Risk

SharePoint has been one of the most successful technologies ever released by Microsoft. Tens of thousands of businesses have deployed SharePoint for improved team collaboration, document management, and faster delivery of custom business applications. While Microsoft has an outstanding secure Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) and SharePoint is not inherently insecure, it lacks the enterprise data security capabilities required to meet privacy compliance requirements and secure information from determined attackers.
