Making Your Enterprise Wikis Secure - Zoho Wiki offers Three Tier Permissions

Wikis have come a long way from being just another tool for information aggregation. They are now widely used for online content sharing and collaboration at multiple levels. One of the biggest concern for people who opt for Wikis inside their organization is Security. Companies strictly adhere to privacy policies and would like their data to be highly confidential.

SMBs who look out for quality wiki software had to settle between free wiki sites that didn't have enterprise level security or choose expensive alternatives in the market. Zoho Wiki would be the ideal bet in such a scenario. If you want to use an easily affordable enterprise wiki for your company, look no further.

Fine grained Access Controls with Zoho Wiki


Wiki has a three tiered architecture: Wiki -> Workspaces ->

Pages. Within your wiki, you can categorize your content into

independent and fully customizable Workspaces. So, in a business

organization, it is easy to create independent workspaces for each team

and more importantly, each team has its own security controls.

Zoho Wiki Permissions
Zoho Wiki enables you to

have certain confidential project plans as private, share few product design pages alone with a

particular team (Group Sharing)

or publish common company documents to everyone in the organization (organization wide sharing). Being

online, Zoho Wiki removes the firewall constraints and makes it easier

to share and collaborate securely with third parties like clients,

partners and vendors. You can easily build a secure Company Extranet.


see how we can go about making a wiki secure in just a few steps

A. Adding Users to a Wiki:


adding users, you have the option to categorize them as

individual users, group users, organization users, domain users (wiki

content will be shared by users of a particular domain) or Zoho

Registered users (instead of allowing

anonymous guest viewers, this will facilitate valid users to access

the pages) .

B. Setting Granular


The users can then be assigned separate

permissions for viewing, editing, commenting, deleting and creating

pages. This gives more control to the administrator to decide on who can

edit content,

who can view pages, who can post comments etc.

User Permissions

C. Secure Access

By enabling 'only HTTPS' option,

secure access can be guaranteed.

D. Permission Inheritance

  • You can allow default

    permission inheritance, i.e the pages and workspaces

    can inherit the wiki permission itself or

  • you have the

    flexibility to define permissions for wiki, workspaces and the pages

    separately. For example, the wiki by itself can be shared with the

    entire company but finance workspace alone can be private.

So, go

ahead and try & see how helpful Zoho Wiki can be for your business
