Enable Secure Mobile & Web Access to Microsoft SharePoint

Empower employees with external access to SharePoint and other intranet resources

 

Empower employees with external access to SharePoint and other intranet resources

 

Microsoft SharePoint authorizes user access based on a Microsoft domain session using Kerberos or similar technologies. An external user without a direct domain session cannot access SharePoint directly using common Single Sign-On (SSO) solutions deployed at the perimeter of the enterprise. Requiring VPN access to the enterprise for accessing SharePoint and other intranet resources is not practical and widens the attack surface of the enterprise.

Layer 7 delivers a simple solution for brokering access to Microsoft-based Web applications and APIs. By deploying Layer 7’s SecureSpan Gateway in the DMZ, the enterprise can enable and control access to Microsoft SharePoint without the need for VPN connections. The enterprise can leverage the same SecureSpan Gateway to control access to any Web applications and APIs that need to be consumed by mobile applications.
