Businesses are demanding technology that provides higher productivity and greater flexibility to provide value to their customers and generate new customers. It also needs to enable more effective partnerships and lower the cost of doing business. SharePoint is purchased for a number of reasons, but generally the primary purpose is to foster the collaboration and information sharing required in order to achieve these objectives.
However, opening up documents for sharing can open up a can of worms when it comes to security. This white paper will look at the issues around securing documents in the context of Microsoft's recommended inheritance model, which defines permissions and allows them to be inherited through all sites, lists, libraries, folders and items.
- Where does inheritance work and what are its limits?
- How does the inheritance model fit in with the emergent era of claims and the demand for non-employee access?
- Can using inheritance actually stop effective collaboration and cost SharePoint customers more in terms of time and administrative effort?
