Collaborative editing has transformed the way teams work together, making it easier to collaborate on documents, presentations, and other projects in real time. However, many companies have concerns about the security of their data when using cloud-based collaborative editing tools.
That’s why Excellentable has introduced an option to collaboratively edit Confluence spreadsheets behind a firewall for your Confluence data center. In this blog post, we’ll explore the advantages of hosting collaborative editing behind your firewall is a game-changer.
Confluence collaborative editing spreadsheets: Advantages
- Enhanced Security: When you host your collaborative editing behind your firewall, you have complete control over the security of your data. You can set up firewalls, access controls, and other security measures to protect your data from unauthorized access.
- Compliance: Many companies need to comply with strict data privacy and security regulations. By hosting your collaborative editing behind your firewall, you can ensure that you’re meeting all of these requirements.
- Cost-Effective: Hosting your collaborative editing behind your firewall might be a cost-effective option, especially for larger organizations.
- Increased Control: Finally, hosting your collaborative editing behind your firewall gives you greater control over your data.
