Sproket Intranet Portal provides all the functionality you expect and works with SharePoint to deliver an efficient and productive digital workplace.
Having your own intranet portal in your organization means you'll be empowering your teams with strong internal communications abilities while also helping to keep your network contents secure.
Another word for "portal" is "gateway", and a gateway can be used to keep something out or let something in. The portal you can get from Sproket does this too, by restricting your intranet content to your own network.
The only way to get around that is to intentionally transmit a document to the outside world, but even then only one document is affected and not the whole network.
This is one reason why users should be trained to understand the security implications of using email. Any time email travels outside your network, it had better be encrypted with a strong cypher, or the contents will be wide open to anyone who wants to see.
You might be very surprised to find out just how many people want to see the contents of your emails and how useful it can be to them. This is why security should always be your number one consideration.
When the internal communications of an organization are optimal, productivity is usually optimal as well. Good internal communications allow people to more effectively collaborate and share information with each other.
This means teams are truly empowered, able to work at peak efficiency. Sproket's intranet portal provides many tools to enable your teams to communicate more effectively and achieve better results.
Secure networks are happy networks. You may think your organization is an unlikely target for cybercriminals, but in fact they'll be more than happy to add you to their list of victims if given the chance.
If cybercrime does hit you, the consequences can be very bad. Actually, the probability that your systems have already been affected by cybercrime is very high. This is because most people don't have sufficient knowledge of IT security, and totally underestimate the level of risk they face.
Anti-virus and firewall software are good safety measures to have, but they're not enough to keep you completely safe. Any system is only as secure as its gatekeepers allow it to be, and staff without security training are like blind gatekeepers. Unless a threat blatantly announces itself, they're usually not going to recognize it for what it is.
Using an intranet gives you an extra layer of security. It helps isolate internal content from the external world, so you can present a smaller attack surface, and thus reduce your vulnerability.
Communicating internally and using email sparingly are going to provide a natural security boost, and that is precisely the kind of culture a well-designed intranet system promotes.
Sproket's intranet solution allows your organization to develop an "email as a last resort" culture, because all the other means of internal communication available are so much more efficient.
