Trend Micro commissioned Osterman Research to undertake a survey of North American and European organizations to determine how and why they are using Microsoft SharePoint and to determine their requirements for security specifically focused on SharePoint.
A total of 269 surveys were completed with individuals who are involved in managing the messaging and collaboration infrastructure for their organizations.
This white paper outlines the key findings and recommendations from that research, including:
- SharePoint security concerns are more focused on protecting sensitive information
- Employees are the most common SharePoint users
- Regulatory issues may drive some organizations to deploy SharePoint security
