External Access to SharePoint

QA3113

Question

Is your SharePoint infrastructure exposed to the internet and what authentication method do you use?

The majority of authentication strategies were guided by the sensitivity of the data; sensitive data was either not stored or required two factor authentication.  69% of the members responding had allowed external access to their SharePoint environments.  Of these, 50% use one factor authentication (username and password), 10% included the use of a PINsafe device and the remaining 40% used a two factor authentication solution using a mixture of RSA SecurID tokens, SiteMinder and Active Directory.  Forced password changes were recommended in line with the sensitivity of the data.
