Security and Policy
Asking users to upload important documents and information content to SharePoint without providing a level of security to protect their data is like driving without a seatbelt. Users like to know that their data is secure when they are asked to move it from their work machines to shared servers and collaborative platforms, like SharePoint. Therefore, Microsoft has ensured that SharePoint, since the early days, has had security measures baked into the platform. The security model in SharePoint 2013 itself has not changed a lot since the previous versions, SharePoint 2007 and 2010, which benefits users of the legacy versions, since they do not have to learn a new model for securing user content.
