When it comes to compliance and management of sensitive data, context is very important.

According to a recent report from the Association of Image and Information Management (AIIM), more than 60 percent of organizations fail to incorporate Microsoft SharePoint deployments into existing compliance, human resources, retention, and long-term archive policies. To mitigate the potential for regulatory compliance issues, privacy incidents, and security data breaches, AvePoint, the leader in governance and infrastructure management solutions for Microsoft SharePoint, today announced the release of a new compliance solution that enables organizations to automate access and controls for their SharePoint deployments in order to not only mitigate the likelihood of a catastrophic incident, but also help establish a comprehensive risk management program.

Key features and benefits of AvePoint Compliance Solutions include:

  •     Prevent content leaks and misuse by applying SharePoint permissions, tagging, and security settings as well as assigning policy access rights and permissions to content stored in file shares.
  •     Detect offensive content with real-time scans and scheduled risk reports, as well as the ability to search for user permissions with security search or profile security permissions for individual users or groups.
  •     Track user activity with user lifecycle reports and monitor content lifecycle with item lifecycle reports.
  •     Respond and resolve breaches by archiving and encrypting all SharePoint content; implementing and managing Legal Holds on discrete SharePoint content on-demand; and quickly restructure permissions, access metadata and security of content itself.

“When it comes to compliance and management of sensitive data, context is very important,” said Dana Simberkoff, Senior Director of Risk Management & Compliance at AvePoint. “It is not only the existence of the data itself, but also information about who can and who has accessed it, what they accessed, when they accessed it, where they accessed it, how they accessed it and why they had access to it – that sets the stage for a true compliance review. AvePoint’s ability to provide comprehensive, in-depth reporting and analysis of the lifecycle of sensitive data as well as the actions of users within their SharePoint environments helps organizations improve security of SharePoint as a system for managing sensitive data not only positively impacts regulatory compliance, but also promotes confidence in the platform’s viability – a quality integral to successful SharePoint adoption.”
