Policies Panel 1 automated security policy enforcement

Automated security policy enforcement

Policies makes it easy to automate common rules for access, settings, and other configurations. Set white/black list policies, policies for external sharing, and more. When Policies catches configuration drift, notify and even revert the change automatically. Securing collaboration in Teams, Groups, Sites, and OneDrive has never been easier.


We see the solutions working when we get our monthly report. We don’t have uncontrolled growth. We are saving money on storage and will continue to save as we grow bigger and the solution scales with us.

Proactively manage access, white/black list, sharing, and even version controls for your Teams, Groups, Sites, and OneDrives. You define the rules – and we’ll do the rest.

Policies Panel 5 Get Insights

The Power of AvePoint's Confidence Platform

Get Insights for Microsoft 365 to create better policies

Not sure which policies and rules make sense for you? Get Insights, and get the insight you need to build better policies. Insights uses Microsoft’s own data, so we’re not crawling Microsoft 365, or adding to your throttle concerns. We do the dirty work of combining, parsing, and prioritizing your potential issues – so you don’t have to! How else will you know what rules are most critical? Admins can stay focused on what matters most.
