Description:

More than ever, companies use Microsoft SharePoint to connect employees, partners, and even customers for real-time collaboration. They’re also using more SharePoint capabilities than ever before— moving beyond simple content repositories to build team sites, create intranet and extranet portals, and utilize wikis and blogs. These dynamic collaboration environments help optimize productivity, but they also multiply your security risks, especially when opened to external users. File sharing and the real-time interactivity of Web 2.0 give cybercriminals more opportunities to infiltrate and steal data— and it only takes one data breach to destroy the trust you’ve built.


Trend MicroTM PortalProtectTM offers a dedicated layer of protection for Microsoft SharePoint, guarding against malware, malicious links, and other threats to help ensure that your collaboration systems are secure. PortalProtect goes beyond standard antivirus protection to deliver highly scalable web threat and data loss prevention, while web reputation technology stops malicious web links—whether intentional or mistyped—from entering your discussion forums, blogs, and wikis. With PortalProtect, companies of any size can use SharePoint to safely distribute information, files, and links while minimizing the risk of data loss and the spread of malware.
