Replace or regenerate your Intranet with Huddle
Huddle as an intranet
Why does your Intranet inhibit collaboration? The clue is in the word. In most commercial and government organizations, your Intranet is protected from unauthorized external access by means of a network gateway and firewall. That makes it slow and sometimes impossible to collaborate with third parties, such as contractors, agencies or partners.
Huddle breaks through this barrier, providing a secure online environment where content can easily and securely be accessed by team members—whichever side of the firewall they sit. No more VPN and firewall configurations and no need to create additional profiles.
TEST-DRIVE HUDDLE AS AN INTRANET
“Huddle enables us to keep track of projects in real-time, view client feedback and clearly identify final proofs. We also appreciate the ease and speed of Huddle’s intuitive interface, ensuring that new members of staff and clients understand it immediately.”
Robert Burns, Executive Director of Information Technology, AKQA
Collaboration with anyone, anywhere
Unlike your Intranet, Huddle enables you to work seamlessly through the firewall with your extended partners, such as consultants, contractors and agencies. No more hours in conference rooms hunched over the speakerphone; no more confusion over content version shared with external partners. You simply invite third-parties into the secure workspace and they instantly share the same view of content as you do, subject to the permissions provided. Third-parties are no longer a backwater; they’re back alongside you
If your staff are reliant on the Intranet for collaboration, they will most likely turn to non-secure systems like email and personal cloud services to transfer data with partners outside the firewall. One slip and the data is lost forever. Huddle keeps your content secure with high-caliber security features. And unlike other collaboration tools, we provide a closed-security model to prevent accidental disclosure of content. We are pan-government accredited, ISO 27001 certified, and FISMA compliant.
Access the right version of everything, every time
When you go to your next meeting, everyone will be on the same page. Huddle cuts out all the time that’s wasted with the Intranet when team members share, update or finalize the wrong version of a document. You can get those precious hours back and ensure your team focuses more on the projects that matter. You can access, compare, or roll-back older versions if necessary—all in just a few clicks. When users make comments and updates, Huddle automatically notifies everyone involved, accelerating the review cycle.
One central location for your content
With Huddle, file sharing, project collaboration and content management are all together in one secure, shared environment. Unlike intranet software, you can work using your preferred device; and your extended supply chain can too—online or offline. Everything is synchronized so you can see who has made which changes. File size limits aren’t an issue either: there is no need to zip documents, or deal with the cumbersome, difficulties of FTP.
Look, no IT
Being cloud-based, Huddle requires no upfront cost, initial deployment or maintenance. This allows IT to focus on more strategic activities, and your team to focus on innovation and agility. With an ever growing number of extensions and an open API, Huddle can be fully integrated into your enterprise stack. An integrated service with Salesforce.com, for example, allows documents to be surfaced into Salesforce against an account, contact or any type of record.

Sensibly securing the cloud
Because cloud infrastructure exists mostly or entirely outside of on-premise data centers, IT admins aren’t always properly equipped with the full scope of knowledge needed to evaluate cloud security practices among vendors and form comparisons between cloud services. This cloud security field guide will give you a solid understanding of the key components of cloud security and help guide you to make well-informed purchasing decisions.
