Secure Extranet Development

Organizations often need a private / secure website for streamlining business operations and transactions between trading partners, members or subscribers. These sites are not accessible to the public, though they may be accessed through a secure login on a public website or company intranet. Extranets are widely used across all industry sectors because they allow an organization to distribute and access secure information in the most efficient way. The key to a world class extranet is architecture and security.

There is a difference between an enterprise grade software development firm and software developers who tend to focus on basic functionality and the look and feel of a site. The critical difference is enterprise and application architecture and security. Through a variety of proven security and authentication approaches, Brainspire builds feature-rich extranets to ensure your information is shared only with the intended audience.

As an example, Brainspire has provided a secure portal to conduct wholesale purchasing transactions between a local manufacturing company and a large retailer.  Both the manufacturer and the retailer are exchanging information regarding detailed product specifications, pricing, purchase orders, change orders and time of delivery through the secure extranet. The complex application architecture and security ensures that each user only has access to select data on select pages of the site in order to create, edit, view and delete information.
