Smarsh prevents data loss and improves regulatory compliance for Microsoft Teams
Smarsh has introduced the latest version of Control for Microsoft Teams. The data-loss prevention (DLP) solution enables customers to enforce internal policies, and to block and delete content within Teams, strengthening compliance, risk and security efforts.
“Teams is the fastest growing application from Microsoft, and as a featured component of Microsoft Office 365, it is fundamentally changing how organizations communicate and collaborate,” said Anthony West, Smarsh CTO. “Many organizations, including those with rigorous FINRA or SEC regulatory obligations, are strategically investing in Office 365 to reap the productivity benefits. When deploying a rich, dynamic tool like Microsoft Teams, they require a demonstrable layer of risk protection with proactive compliance capabilities that enhance their mandated capture, retention and supervision efforts.”
Using the solution, Teams conversations (one-to-one, multi-party, and channel chats, with emojis, GIFs, files, links and bots) are monitored in real-time using DLP policies implemented within Control. When policy violations are detected, Control performs DLP actions (such as delete and challenge) that end users see in near-real-time within the native Teams application.
All Teams content, as well as full fidelity metadata and contextual data (i.e., images, participants, chat room names), is captured in its native format and available for ingestion into the Smarsh Connected Archive or a customer’s existing archiving solution, in support of regulatory compliance, e-discovery, and/or recordkeeping initiatives.
Control for Microsoft Teams is available now via on-premise deployment for customers using DLP-enabled Office 365 SKUs.
