Security and compliance
The security of business data should always be top priority for any organisation and Microsoft SharePoint is the most secure platform available. SharePoint has a large range of built-in security features that allows you to control who has access to specific content as well as access to sites. This also includes the monitoring of exact documents and seeing when they were accessed.
For example, an organisation may decide that only a certain team can see a specific set of documents. Adding permissions means that these files and folders become inaccessible to anyone else within the business, thereby improving security.
Microsoft SharePoint has built-in site hierarchal structure and the Site Administrator has the authority to organise initial permissions. Your employees can access interactive Excel spreadsheets which are running on SharePoint. Using single, centralised versions of these spreadsheets, and proprietary information within can be protected even while multiple users are accessing.
