Huddle as an extranet

An extranet is undoubtedly a great way to share protected information with clients, business partners, and privileged customers. However it brings with it an extra big bucket of headaches. An extranet can be expensive to implement and maintain within an organization, often absorbing significant use of hardware, software and staff training costs, if hosted internally. Extranet security can also be a concern when hosting valuable or proprietary information—exposing sensitive data outside your perimeter.

Huddle reinvents the extranet. The easy-to-use, cloud-based extranet software gives your distributed employees, customers and partners a central, secure online location to easily share information anytime and anywhere.
