WorkBook: secure Facebook for the enterprise

WorkBook is a Facebook application that allows employees to use the social networking site to communicate securely. It has the same look and feel as Facebook, and is employee-driven, but it adheres to the strictest corporate security standards.

With WorkBook, employees can securely use Facebook to:

  • Find colleagues by name, location, department, project and area of expertise
  • Collaborate with peers using familiar Facebook capabilities
  • View up-to-date, corporate-specific information about peers such as status, department, role and location
  • Receive general and personalized company news directly from a Facebook news feed
  • Create groups around shared interest areas and work-related projects
  • Setup Q&A forums with colleagues to get quick answers

In addition, WorkBook provides businesses with:

  • Secure provisioning that ensures the application can be used only by authorized employees
  • Information security – corporate-related information is visible only to employees
  • Compliance with existing security policies – enterprise security integration authenticates WorkBook users via corporate authentication facilities, enforces access control policies and supports Single Sign-On (SSO) 
  • Integration with the company’s directory or applications to augment  information from Facebook profiles
