Managing SharePoint Extranets
From SharePoint Solutions comes SharePoint Extranet Collaboration Manager 2010—an add-on solution to create, secure, manage, monitor and streamline the use of SharePoint 2010 extranets. It lets delegated users perform routine administrative tasks such as sending invitations, adding accounts, unlocking accounts, managing passwords, granting access, and removing access. Admins can define security policies to govern site access and activity–at the site collection level, at the site level, or based on email domain. A new feature is the online extranet sandbox to enable users to test drive the product before purchasing it. To learn more, see the company's website.
