After conducting an initial feasibility analysis, the GSPANN team proposed the integration of Seclore with SharePoint. We developed a custom solution to protect the document during file upload in SharePoint using Seclore API. We performed multiple quality checks to ensure that Seclore performed as per the client’s expectations.
The solution allows the users work on a document while they are offline using the Seclore Lite, the client’s desktop application, which authenticates a user with Active Directory before they start working with the documents. SharePoint document permissions are mapped to Seclore permissions and a user access on documents is controlled through Seclore policies.
The solution restricts a user from copying document content and hides the protected documents' content during screen sharing. The files can be viewed online in a browser using the ‘Seclore online viewer’ feature. The solution also generates audit reports to track action taken by the users on a document.
Automated protection of documents saves a lot of manual effort that was previously involved in the process. It also reduced the number of issues related to document protection. More than 2500 users, both internal and external, are using the solution seamlessly and can apply user-based permissions.
