AvePoint, the established leader in enabling enterprise collaboration across platforms and devices, today announced it has been named to the Gartner 2016 Market Guide for Data-Centric Audit and Protection (DCAP). The DCAP Market Guide outlines the status of the emerging market in order to help organizations make purchasing decisions suited to their technology needs.
According to Gartner, DCAP is a category of products characterized by the ability to centrally manage data security policies and controls across unstructured, semi-structured and structured repositories or silos. Within its matrix comparing DCAP vendor capabilities, Gartner lists AvePoint for integrated policies, data classification, and data discovery across multiple data silos – including file shares, Microsoft SharePoint, and Microsoft Office 365.
“Companies have been using AvePoint solutions to discover sensitive information, analyze system security, and check for Key Control Indicators across enterprise collaboration systems in order to better respond to audits for many years,” said John Hodges, Vice President of Product Strategy, AvePoint. “AvePoint’s inclusion in the DCAP Market Guide underscores the capabilities our software has to create a safe and well-governed place for data.”
AvePoint solutions for DCAP provide the following capabilities to organizations:
