An extranet is a computer network that requires authentication to access. It is typically used by businesses to provide access to company information for partners, vendors, customers, etc. by using a virtual private network (VPN) to send and receive data across public networks. A SharePoint Extranet is a SharePoint farm or SharePoint sites where employees, partners, and customers can securely access shared data for collaboration and distribution.
Our state-of-the-art data centers bundle redundancy with SSAE16 SOC1 control auditing to safeguard your data with Fpweb.net’s secure network.
We simplify the licensing process by using your current licensing or procuring it for you. Mitigate licensing costs by hosting everything on the same farm.
Deploy your infrastructure quickly and connect from anywhere in the world when your extranet resides in the Fpweb.net private cloud.
A very common scenario involves employees hosting their intranet in house while hosting their SharePoint extranet in the Cloud. This keeps private documents on premises while allowing for easier connectivity for partner and vendor access to the extranet.
For the most advanced security and accessibility features, companies host their intranet and their SharePoint extranet in a private cloud. A one-way AD trust keeps your intranet and network resources hidden while allowing secure VPN access to your extranet.
It’s possible to host your SharePoint extranet in the Cloud without an intranet. Employees with no intranet typically use Active Directory in the Cloud and require a different set of credentials for security reasons.
