Extranet Publisher is a new product from Envision IT. It is intended for scenarios where you need to publish content to a broad external user audience. They don't need to collaborate, they just need to be able to easily consume that content. This could be your public website, or a private site you want to share securely with a particular audience.
While out of the box in Office 365 you can anonymously share individual documents, there is no way to share a whole site anonymously. With Extranet Publisher you can leverage Azure websites to do this very cost effectively.
Both our Envision IT (www.envisionit.com) and Extranet User Manager (www.extranetusermanager.com) sites are built using this technology. For a customer scenario, please visit the OntarioMD customer case study on our Envision IT website.
