Governance & security for Office 365

Empower end users with self-service IT for Office 365 provisioning, management, and lifecycle operations. Transcend rigid provisioning or security solutions with user-driven services for Groups, Teams, and sites, and automatically apply governance policies.

Empower users

Self-service with control. Grant Office 365 users access to whatever they need, based on who and where they are.

Secure collaboration

Provision and recertify collaboration spaces with pre-set policies for classification, ownership, metadata, and access.

Scale IT resources

Ensure IT works smarter by packaging repetitive tasks into services. Reverse data sprawl with lifecycle automation.

Justify IT investment

Reporting and auditing lets management review Office 365 usage and provides ROI statistics for resource allocation.

For your most common IT operations


Users can request new workspaces—like Groups, Sites, and Teams—through a self-service catalogue. Proactively apply access, classification, and retention policies upon creation.


Periodically recertify content ownership and classification to maintain accountability and validate relevance. Users can keep and update permissions with limited IT intervention.


Ensure required or relevant content is kept in Office 365 and get rid of the rest. Reduce risk and improve data quality to improve search results and user satisfaction.

Easy on your users

Access to service catalogues from Office 365. We integrate with Office 365 controls so users requesting access to a site natively, for instance, can be redirected to your service.

Easier on IT

With the flexibility to delegate approvals entirely to business owners, IT can save time previously spent fulfilling basic requests. Build a service once, use it again, and again.

Touch-free servers

Cloud Governance is a SaaS application, 100% hosted in Microsoft Azure—no install, no servers, nada. Updates automatically so you’ll always support the latest Office 365 features.
