Administrators and developers have exceptional control over all aspects of site security. Whether CommonSpot's granular permissions, custom authentication capabilities, cross site scripting prevention, or its SSL support, CommonSpot was built as an enterprise scale application with security in mind.



Authentication Feature Thumbnail

CommonSpot provides a robust security framework that you can use out of the box, or integrate with your own authentication system. It enables full user authentication and group management for both content editors and site visitors, and can also call upon any third-party user directory (such as LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol), Active Directory, or any custom data source) so users and groups can be centrally managed.
