Huddle Strengthens Security for External Collaboration

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM — (Marketwired) — 08/23/16 — , the leader in secure collaboration tools for enterprise and government, today announced general availability of the Unified Authentication Portal. Account managers can now apply authentication and security policies such as Single Sign On (SSO) across Huddle–s web, desktop and mobile apps in one step, simplifying the process of keeping content secure. Coupled with more granular permissions control and additional mobile security features, enterprises now have even greater control over internal and external access to content in Huddle.

With the ever-increasing risk of data breaches, security has become paramount in today–s enterprise organization. This need is even more evident for professional services firms, who often handle large volumes of extremely sensitive client data, or work on projects with clients or partners outside of the organization. Huddle–s of professional services firms identified robust data security as a crucial factor for winning new business, with 12 percent of firms citing data breaches as a specific and direct cause of client losses.

“Security is a top concern for most enterprises; however this is especially true of professional services firms who are collaborating with internal and external stakeholders on a regular basis,” said Stuart Cochran, CTO, Huddle. “In our latest release we–ve doubled down on our commitment to being the industry–s most secure cloud-collaboration platform, making it even easier to keep data secure regardless of who has access. This is especially important, particularly when the success of an engagement depends on efficient collaboration and communications between internal teams, the clients and other external partners.”

Released today, the following features make it easier than ever to keep corporate and client data secure:

: Provides unprecedented insight into user access levels, allowing administrators to identify and control internal and external users and set permissions independently.

Automates the process of adding, removing or changing users, allowing an organization to onboard and maintain their users without any manual oversight.

Allows organizations to use SSO for employees, while also using 2-factor authentication for clients and partners.

Keeps data secure by forcing users to unlock the Huddle iOS app with a unique code.

Provides more granular permission control for managers who can now enable users to view and collaborate on content online, without allowing them to download, copy or print it.

“Our latest security features provide even greater control over access and permissions levels in a mixed –internal – external– user environment. For example, access for internal users can be managed via Single Sign-on, coupled with external access control via multi-factor authentication,” continued Stuart. “Security is the cornerstone of our product, which is why 80 percent of UK government departments, NASA, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the National Institutes for Health, and other agencies across the U.S. federal government have chosen Huddle.”

In addition to a full suite of administrative controls to manage user authentication, access and auditing, Huddle–s government-grade security adheres to strict certifications from data encryption to threat protection. Huddle is independently ISO 27001:2013 certified by BSi, adheres to NIST 800-53 rev 4 under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) and has achieved Cyber Essentials Plus.
