"SharePoint is a great way for businesses to collaborate and share documents, but using the platform can also increase a company's vulnerability to malware. If one company unintentionally posts a contaminated file, then everyone who accesses the same file can become infected," said Nigel Hedges, technical services manager, Kaspersky Lab Australia and New Zealand.
The product is also able to block file uploads based on their name, extension or content type. "Kaspersky Security for Collaboration can be personalised to suit a company's policy, to ensure offensive or explicit content can't be accessed, even if it has been posted to the platform," added Mr Hedges.
A single console manages Kaspersky Security for Collaboration across multiple SharePoint servers.
It is available as a standalone product, or as part of the Kaspersky Total Open Space Security Solution.
