Mitigate Risk in Microsoft SharePoint with AvePoint

For organizations worldwide, Microsoft SharePoint continues to deliver tremendous value as an enterprise content management and collaboration platform. With a broad array of business solutions and social capabilities at their fingertips, virtually every employee within a company is now a "content contributor" through the platform. Along with this new content, however, come new regulatory, statutory, and organizational compliance risks.

According to a recent AIIM report, more than 60 percent of organizations have yet to bring their SharePoint deployments into existing compliance, Human Resources, retention, and long-term archive policies. To combat potential exposure of sensitive or classified information such as personally identifiable information, it is imperative that organizations bring their SharePoint farms in line with existing compliance policies. As deployments grow, organizations must also find ways to efficiently store records in compliance with retention or records management policies.

AvePoint Compliance Solutions allow compliance officers, company executives, and administrators to implement automated access and content controls for their enterprise-wide SharePoint and file share systems to prevent breaches. If and when a breach does occur, AvePoint's Compliance Solutions can swiftly detect, track, respond, and recover. Organizations can further reduce compliance risk by enabling consistent disposition of content in accordance with records management policies for content preservation, remediation, or retention.

This powerful combination mitigates the likelihood of a catastrophic incident, and helps provide information that will lead to system hardening and improvements for the continuous life cycle that must make up a successful risk management program.
