AvePoint Brings Information Governance to the Cloud with Compliance Guardian Online

AvePoint’s new release ensures organizations’ web applications, websites, and SharePoint Online sites are protected from privacy and security risks without adding additional infrastructure

Jersey City, New Jersey — April 29, 2014AvePoint, the established leader in enterprise-class big data management, governance, and compliance software solutions for next-generation social collaboration platforms, today announced the general availability of AvePoint Compliance Guardian Online. Compliance Guardian Online, running on Microsoft Azure, helps organizations ensure that web applications, websites, and cloud platforms offer content and information securely and within organizational guidelines to minimize risk of privacy violations, malicious threats, or unintended data leakage.

Compliance Guardian Online provides a comprehensive governance, risk, and compliance solution for web and cloud platforms, which allows organizations to say what policies they are going to implement to achieve compliance, do what they say, and prove conformance.

“While enterprise cloud and web platforms provide an ideal landscape for improving global collaboration, they come with an inherent risk factor,” said Dana Simberkoff, Senior Vice President of Risk Management & Compliance, AvePoint. “In order to protect both their corporate brand and their customers accessing content and applications through the Web—and to fully accept the cloud as a viable platform for business—organizations must first trust that their content is safe, then be able to provide their clients with the same assurance. Compliance Guardian Online gives users the insight and control needed to build this sense of trust.”

AvePoint Compliance Guardian Online allows organizations to do the following:

Say It. Establish information governance and compliance policies to ensure sensitive or regulated content is classified, secured, and protected appropriately. Scan enterprise content stored on web and cloud platforms against a wide range of U.S., international, and vertical-specific compliance regulations and guidelines. Organizations can also automate compliance assessments of web-based Internet and Intranet systems through the use of Compliance Guardian Online Web Transaction Scripting.

Do It. Determine the severity of risk-defined business data with advanced risk calculators to help compliance personnel prioritize resolution. With options such as highlighting areas that violate the specified compliance standards or guidelines as well as providing multiple perspectives on potential risk within content using out-of-the-box and customizable algorithms, organizations can quickly address non-compliant information.

Prove It. Prove policy compliance with ongoing monitoring, detailed reporting, and granular incident tracking. Monitor on content and systems for ongoing compliance. Produce detailed reports of preventative and corrective actions taken to ensure content is uploaded, stored, classified, and secured in accordance with information governance policies. Combine human review with automated process to ensure risk report accuracy, confidently reporting on risk levels at any point in time as well as demonstrating to chief security personnel progress in reducing overall organizational risk.

“AvePoint Compliance Guardian Online was the ideal solution to help us assess our members and partners’ websites in order to offer a fully holistic audit of their recruitment processes,” said Tracey Abbott, Recruitment Specialist, Business Disability Forum. “Compliance Guardian Online is now a vital enabler, working to keep the Business Disability Forum in line with its purpose: To build disability-smart organizations to improve business performance by increasing confidence, accessibility, productivity, and profitability.”
