Secure team collaboration: How to use already existing business processes in collaboration tools in a highly secure way

Digitalization, cloud and collaboration tools belong together for you. You want to take advantage of these applications without compromising on IT security. To guarantee security, you need solutions that fit seamlessly into the existing processes of your secure cloud collaboration tools. At the same time, you want to have control over the security level yourself and automatically set an appropriate level depending on the document. Furthermore, compliance with various regulations is of particular importance to you.

Collaboration tools and applications running in web browsers are now commonplace in all organizations. The benefits of this secure cloud collaboration are obvious: the productivity of your employees experiences a quantum leap. They put an end to the often confusing exchange via email, ensure better communication between your teams and provide an easy way to share information with colleagues. And even more:

"Cloud computing has become the core technology of digitalization."
Peter Heidkamp, Head of Technology bei KPMG

However, the applications themselves often involve numerous cloud security risks that are not acceptable in a business environment. In addition, many collaboration tools run in web browsers. These, however, suffer from various weaknesses: Malware, plug-ins, cookies and JavaScript compromise security.
