Secure Microsoft 2010 SharePoint-Based Solution for Multi-Enterprise Collaboration

Today’s business marketplace is defined by two operating principles that are here to stay: mobility and geographically distributed, multi-enterprise project teams. In this landscape, there’s simply no time or budget for face-to-face communication; remote, secure B2B collaboration is a must. The collaboration solution must be powerful, scalable, easy-to-use, and flexible, yet not burden the IT department or the bottom line.
Exostar’s ForumPass is a cloud-based, enterprise-class, complete B2B project collaboration service offering. It’s built on the Microsoft SharePoint 2010 platform, and it offers desktop integration with Microsoft Office and Microsoft Outlook, so user productivity is optimized. Integrations with Microsoft’s SharePoint Designer, InfoPath, and Visio allow organizations to customize the solution’s look-and-feel and capture and automate project-specific workflows and business processes.
What truly makes ForumPass unique is its security. ForumPass executes within Exostar’s Community Cloud, a connect-once environment anchored by Exostar’s Identity Hub that brings companies and their customers, partners, and suppliers together. Key security features include:
- Federated, claims-aware authentication that supports single sign-on access
- Four tiers of increasingly stringent security profiles that provide the appropriate level of protection and regulatory compliance dictated by the project
- Controlled information sharing through standard database level encryption that protects data at-rest, optional end-to-end encryption that protects information in-transit, and optional restricted WebEx meetings that limit attendance to only those team members with the required credentials
These advanced capabilities allow ForumPass to promote:
ForumPass complements SharePoint with multi-tenancy functionality that lets organizations leverage their existing investments as they extend activities beyond their "four walls," yet do so with a single software instance of the solution hosted at Exostar’s facilities. Our deep knowledge, experience, and expertise related to the demanding information security and identity assurance requirements of industries including aerospace and defense and life sciences mean customers of ForumPass enjoy reduced risk of intellectual property loss and regulatory non-compliance.
With ForumPass, you can manage every aspect of a project’s lifecycle in a secure, online environment, and benefit from improved communication, better quality, faster cycle times, and significant cost savings. It’s ideally suited for integrated program, product, or project teams involving external partners or geographically dispersed team members.
