Webinar: How to Balance Security and Usability for Extranet Single Sign On
Tuesday, June 17, 2014
2:00 - 3:00 PM EST
Why a SharePoint Extranet?
With governance over email and external file sharing services becoming increasingly significant, it is crucial that organizations have a secure portal to communicate and collaborate with external users. Microsoft SharePoint delivers a platform that allows a tailored approach towards a robust, manageable Extranet. In this Webinar, Envision IT will demonstrate a variety of accessibility and authentication scenarios that ensure a rich extranet user experience is maintained for all staff and external users, regardless of the security issues.
We will explore:
What is a DMZ and why won’t IT Security let me connect to resources there with my internal credentials?
Learn how to leverage Microsoft AD FS to allow you to connect without opening any internal firewall ports
IT Security says we have a reverse proxy to our internal SharePoint for staff remote access, but they won’t let me allow external users in
See how the Extranet User Manager’s federated login securely allows those users in without opening ports or establishing trusts to the external user store
I want a seamless sign-up and login experience for my internal and external users
Our EZRealm home realm discovery detects internal users and redirects them through the internal ADFS login process seamlessly, without them ever having to enter credentials
External users can self-register and create their Extranet accounts, with or without approval workflows
Once registered they can log in with their email address and password, or reset their password if they’ve forgotten it
Internal users can also log in externally through ADFS with their standard AD credentials, or VPN access can be required for them for additional security
What about Single Sign-On to my non-SharePoint applications?
Learn how claims and federation are the future direction for Single Sign-On across all types of web applications (not just Microsoft ones or SharePoint
See what is involved in getting a sample ASP.NET web application running with single sign-on
What is this new Web Application Proxy service in Windows Server 2012 R2?
This replaces much of the functionality in Microsoft Forefront TMG and UAG
It is a secure way to publish your Extranet or your internal ADFS
