Cloud Governance

What’s new in Cloud Governance?

The insight-driven renewal process continues to bring guidance directly to workspace owners so they can make informed decisions when validating workspace ownership, classification, and permissions. With this release, Cloud Governance will now display risk details during the renewal process, ensuring owners are always aware of high-risk content in their workspace. Admins will now have a single view into requests submitted via Cloud Governance with a new request report. The new request report consolidates existing request reports from the classic admin center into a single request report and integrates with report permission groups to help scale operational management while also enforcing security.

Get more value from your Cloud Governance capabilities via our on-demand webinar to learn how to leverage an updated and automated renewal process.

avepoint policies


What’s new in Policies?

This release offers new tenant-level setting enhancements, focusing on underlying support for admin-level activities in Exchange, Azure AD security groups, and other privileged settings. Additionally, you can now match defined groups with security groups in Azure AD, and admins can now customize email templates for notifications sent to end-users for each rule and add comments to provide additional context and insight. Plus, rules for admins and policy creators can now be separated out from those sent to end-users who created the violation.

avepoint insights


What’s new in Insights?

While Insights has focused on risk surrounding external sharing, sensitive information is often shared with “anyone within the organization with a link.” With this release, Insights offers a quick view of files shared with “everyone” under the exposure tab, making it easier to see content that may not have been over exposed yet, but stands a possible risk. You can now pin users as favorites on the dashboard. Plus, when reporting on external users, all users of a domain can now be targeted. Risk analysis reports are now easier than ever to navigate and offer more context by highlighting the existing sharing settings for all workspaces, and risk-summary reports can now be imported from dashboards into Excel files.

Plus, AvePoint EnPower now offers support for Exchange mail users and mail contact management.

What’s new in Cloud Backup for Salesforce?

Restores are now up to 10X faster with new, more focused restore options. Plus, when building a new environment or synchronizing production Salesforce tenants with sandbox environments, out-of-place-restore for metadata now makes these new builds even faster! New audit record preservation options are available, as well as new UI options to allow Salesforce orgs to be renamed in the Cloud Backup interface, which will come in handy when working with multi-tenants or sandbox orgs. And, if you use Salesforce as a case management solution, new search fields are now available making it easier to locate a deleted record when running a restore.

Cloud Records

What’s new in Cloud Records?

Enhanced search capabilities! Term management search has been extended to now include descriptions and rules. Build, save, and share a search profile with a configured group of users so that this becomes their standard search profile, enabling a more consistent, accurate, and relevant search experience! Search results can now be exported into an Excel file, new search criteria now enables users to search by physical record template type, and metadata columns can now be configured to easily sort search results. Plus, when moving documents to a new location, you can now maintain the existing classification term of the document or adopt the classification term of the destination.

The Physical Records Explorer now has a new dashboard. The dashboard displays the total number of physical locations configured, locations with the largest volume of content stored, physical records requests, and overdue physical records. Plus, loan requests have now been extended to boxes, so users can now request boxes in the same way they do physical folders. In addition, new manual approval process updates let users assign approval tasks to a site collection owner rather than a named user or group, ensuring a seamless review process even as roles shift within an organization.
