As the internet evolves and computer networks become bigger and more complex, keeping your systems secure becomes more and more critical. In addition to robust content security, CommonSpot includes network security features to keep your site up and running and safe from unauthorized use. As a first line of defense, sites can password-protect their environments using CommonSpot's highly secure encryption right out of the box. Other options include enabling cookie-based authentication for site visitors, custom authentication to integrate third-party mechanisms (LDAP, Active Directory, Kerberos, etc.), or combining techniques and strategies. CommonSpot provides extensive API and documentation support for any implementation.
Sites running over HTTPS can do so in CommonSpot and send email securely using either SSL or TLS. To protect form submissions CommonSpot includes built-in tools for adding CAPTCHA verification. Any form designer can easily add this safeguard to any and all forms at your site. Creating and changing IP address restrictions is just as easy through standard administrative options — no low-level configuration or management required.
CommonSpot is regularly and thoroughly tested, reviewed, and updated to close potential exploits and vulnerabilities and currently meets the standard of CMS security established by United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (CERT).
