Combining efficiency, security, and compliance, Exostar’s ForumPass OFFICIAL meets all 14 Cloud Security Principles and enables organizations to work together in a shared internet-based, collaborative workspace. Built on Microsoft SharePoint and protected by multi-factor authentication, this solution has additional security features that make it one of the most secure online collaborative platforms available. It delivers robust functionality, including end-to-end encryption, through an easy-to-use, intuitive user interface. ForumPass OFFICIAL functions the same as ForumPass, but requires Medium Level of Assurance (MLOA) Software certification to access the solution.
With integrated collaborative functionality and 24/7/365 global availability, the solution enables organizations to exchange business-critical documents such as engineering drawings, proposals, specifications, project information and more with external partners and geographically dispersed teams. Users benefit from improved communication, better quality, faster cycle times, and significant cost savings, all while maintaining compliance with UK government security requirements.
An Encrypted Library is a library type available only on Sensitive, Restricted, Protected, and OFFICIAL site templates. The Encrypted document library offers all the same functionality as a standard document library; in addition, all documents uploaded in an encrypted library are end to end encrypted (E2E). The Java applet (version 5.0 or higher) must be installed on the user’s computer for E2E to be successful.
End to End Encryption provides a high level of information integrity and security by maintaining encryption on transmitted data from the origin of the data to the destination. ForumPass encryption is invoked at the document library level to ensure files contained within that library are handled and maintained with the additional level of security encryption provides.
