AvePoint Unveils New Compliance Guardian to Ensure Information Security Across the Enterprise at Privacy. Security. Risk. 2015

AvePoint Compliance Guardian mitigates privacy, information security, and compliance risk across information gateways, including SharePoint, file shares, databases, and Office 365

Las Vegas – September 29, 2015 – From the halls of IAPP Privacy Academy and CSA Congress’ Privacy. Security. Risk. (P.S.R.) 2015, AvePoint, the established leader in enabling enterprise collaboration across platforms and devices, today introduced the latest release of AvePoint Compliance Guardian. AvePoint Compliance Guardian provides unified risk management from the moment data is created through its entire lifecycle – proactively monitoring and neutralizing violations of privacy, security, and compliance.

Organizations can now ensure information security across SharePoint, file shares, databases, and Office 365 with all-in-one scanning, reporting, and built-in issues resolution. AvePoint Compliance Guardian provides individualized reports and dashboards surfacing only relevant issues, automatically delegating violations to the right people so they can be addressed quickly. With this release, organizations have access to a comprehensive tool for security, risk, and compliance across the enterprise. Features and enhancements include:

Data Discovery: Continuously identify and review data with monitoring tools for alerts of potential privacy or permissions violations to resolve threats before they become costly fines. Businesses can scan and analyze data at the file and content level to better sort and secure every file, block inappropriate content, and protect valued assets.

Data Classification: Standardize classification by automatically tagging new and existing content based on context and ownership. This saves time and reduces the burden on IT resources while allowing administrators to automatically enforce permissions and information governance policies.

Data Loss Prevention: Implement a plan of action to proactively monitor and secure data while enabling a collaborative working environment for end users. By integrating content-level scans with automated tagging, classification, neutralization of potentially sensitive documents, permissions and policy enforcement, as well as location-based mobile access controls, organizations can secure information while allowing users to work the way they naturally do.

Incident Management: Take action to quickly and efficiently resolve issues with security-trimmed and pre-prioritized reports, providing guidance to content owners and compliance teams to target the most critical violations.

“No matter the industry, geographic location, or company size, organizations are dealing with increasing amounts of risk as data is created, collected, stored, and shared throughout information systems across the business,” said Dana Simberkoff, Chief Compliance and Risk Officer, AvePoint. “With the latest release of AvePoint Compliance Guardian, we’re helping compliance officers, IT administrators, and business users efficiently identify this risk, take action by breaking up responsibilities into easy-to-manage portions across roles within the organization, and mitigate issues as they arise in as little time as possible.”
