Security Made for Small Business

Your intranet software security is our top priority.

Security is important for businesses of all sizes. And just because your business is small doesn’t mean it doesn’t need the same top-notch security bigger companies have access to. With Communifire, your small business intranet has the same security banks have. Single-tenant architecture keeps your data separate from everyone else’s, and application security is thoroughly and regularly tested against cyber attacks. Single sign-on integrations keep logins simple and secure, and fine-grained, role-based permissions give you total control over who sees what.
