You would probably know about the default External Sharing feature in Office 365. What if you need to share your site with someone who doesn't have a Microsoft/Office365 Account? What if your client is adamant on using their organization email for access? That's why we have got shareXT (powered by Microsoft Azure) to manage your external users effectively.

shareXT helps you to share your intranet content outside your firewall without worrying about security implications. shareXT’s unique Microsoft Azure based security architecture allows companies to easily create Microsoft accounts for external users. It manages access for large numbers of external users with ease.

No Office 365 or Microsoft License? Are you kidding me? Well, its true and that's exactly what shareXT is capable of!

So what exactly is shareXT? Let's find out:-

shareXT’s mission is to facilitate secure sharing of SharePoint online content with authorized parties outside of your organization. Utilizing the Microsoft Azure Active Directory, shareXT creates user credentials for the individuals with which you want to share content. ShareXT’s unique architecture helps organizations to use Azure AD’s great security features to overcome the external sharing challenges.

  • Invite external users through email to view files in internal network.
  • Provide access to a large number of users at once.
  • Take advantage of easy content sharing.
  • Disable the guest link at any time from shareXT.
  • No Office 365/ Microsoft License to be assigned.

Members can Share

SharePoint is about connecting users and empowering others to make smart business decisions, along with giving them proper levels of control. Internal SharePoint members can now invite both internal and external users to view a document or file. This enables users to be more productive and gain control over managing documents and sharing content.

Folders & Files can be shared with Multiple Users

Share multiple files by sharing a folder or share individual files with any user. Notifications are sent to all recipients in the same email. Select the desired email addresses rather than sending individual emails to each person.

Share content securely

Whether you’re collaborating with customers, suppliers, or partners, External Share will help you work more efficiently and collaborate more effectively without ever leaving your desk. In addition, the users are created in Azure external console, eliminating the need for assignment of separate Microsoft licensing.

When sharing a site with external users using shareXT, you can send them an invitation so that they can log into your site. You can send this invitation to any email address. When the recipient accepts the invitation, they can log in using their organization email ID or whichever email address was provided to the shareXT admin. When sharing a site you can also select the type of permissions you want the person to have on your site.

Since it's managed through Microsoft Azure, you don't need to worry about the security or data breach as Microsoft ranks amongst the top for cloud security.
