Extranets

Extranets have become increasingly popular with companies looking to exhange information with external partners. SharePoint is an ideal platform for creating extranets, offering a secure way to interact with outside parties from within the same familiar SharePoint environment.

Benefits of a SharePoint Extranet:

  • Easy access to information. Internal users can access data from within the corporate network, while external users can access the same data from outside
  • Secure information. External users can access the extranet, but are completely segregated from the internal corporate intranet
  • Familiar environment. Users familiar with using a SharePoint intranet will find a SharePoint extranet site easy to use
  • One platform. SharePoint can be used to create intranets and extranets, negating the need for another platform or program
