Disaster recovery and high-available SharePoint systems

High availability of the SharePoint Server – this is one of the main reasons which makes companies think: “SharePoint system is the exactly what we need!”.

Are you want to have a SSL secured SharePoint environment and be sure that SharePoint data is secure? In this case, you are at the right place! I would like to tell you about SharePoint SSL security and SharePoint SSL certificates in this post.

SSL – Secure Sockets Layer

What is SSL (Secure Socket Layer)

It stands for “Secure Sockets Layer” and it is a protocol that creates secure (HTTPS) connectivity between the server and your application and allows encrypting and decrypting data sent between the two. The applications like web browsers (Internet Explorer and Firefox), email programs like Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, Apple Mail.app, and SFTP (secure file transfer protocol) programs are configured to run SSL. These programs are automatically able to receive SSL connections. But to establish a secure SSL connection your application must have an encryption key assigned to it by a Certification Authority in the form of a Certificate. When your application owns its unique key, you can establish a secure connection using the SSL protocol. In case you are transmitting confidential, business critical information using your SharePoint environment with the SSL encryption will protect it from others seeing it. Do not let your data to be available for those who shouldn’t have it. You can always be sure that sensitive information like Social Security numbers, credit card numbers and so on is protected by a secure HTTPS connection and your customers can trust to your site.

Capabilities of dedicated SharePoint servers

With PlexHosted dedicated SharePoint servers you can easily implement a fully managed and highly secured environment and apply data security policies in order to control access, authentication, and authorization to the SharePoint data. These SharePoint security policies will help you to make dedicated SharePoint servers more securely and securely store all SharePoint data to SharePoint servers.

Dedicated SharePoint have a number features like permission management to allow access to those users who deserve and require it. You can apply the necessary permissions level using three groups automatically created for you: Owners, Members and Visitors or customize them by adding your own security levels and granting unique permissions for different users.

Dedicated SharePoint – secure business system

PlexHosted team can customize required security policies of your dedicated SharePoint servers to meet all specific needs starting from the encrypted SharePoint traffic and finishing with the password policies configuration.

Dedicated SharePoint and data security requirements

Dedicated SharePoint server requires all users to use strong passwords. These passwords help prevent the compromise of user accounts and administrative accounts by unauthorized people who use either manual methods or automated tools to guess weak passwords. Strong passwords that are changed regularly reduce the likelihood of a successful password attack. When applying SharePoint password policies, you can force users to set strong passwords, change them after a certain period of time. You can set passwords to meet complexity requirements, for example, set them to have at least N characters and include a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols. You can determine the number of unique new passwords before an old password can be reused like “previous N passwords cannot be used”. To make these settings more effective you can set the minimum password age and allow users to change it only after several days and, additionally, set the maximum password age to force users to change their passwords every N days. Account lockout policies provides you with the ability to configure the account disabling for a preset period of time after a specified number of failed attempts.  Please note that a locked-out account cannot be used until it is reset by using the admin account.

So, if you want to have a secure, flexible and always working SharePoint servers do not waste your time and choose dedicated SharePoint servers for this purpose.
