Compliance and Data Protection: AvePoint Compliance Guardian helps mitigate risk from the moment data is created through its entire lifecycle by proactively monitoring and neutralizing violations of privacy, security, and compliance. The platform provides risk-based data protection to allow customers to discover, map, and create an inventory for all sensitive data, including Personally Identifiable Information (PII). Compliance Guardian also provides ability to tag, classify, and protect data with full support for pseudonymization, anonymization, and encryption.

Cloud: Compliance Guardian Online, part of AvePoint Online Services – used by 5 million Office 365 users worldwide – allows organizations to minimize risk of privacy violations and information security breaches as well as mitigate accessibility and site quality issues for websites, web applications, and SharePoint Online sites without adding additional infrastructure.

File Analysis: AvePoint File Analysis Services, an integrated component of AvePoint Compliance Guardian, identifies which files reside where and who has access to them – reducing the risk of privacy or sensitive information breaches by increasing visibility into an organization’s unstructured data. By discovering, mapping, and classifying the unstructured data – especially within file shares – organizations can make more informed decisions regarding which data to keep and remove.

Governance: DocAve Governance Automation allows organizations to provide end users with a business-centric, role-based service catalogue for provisioning, restructuring, or migrating content across cloud-hosted, hybrid, or on-premises SharePoint deployments.

Privacy: The AvePoint Privacy Impact Assessment (APIA) solution – a free tool exclusively distributed by the IAPP – mitigates the risk inherent with manual privacy impact assessments, helping organizations understand and automate the process of evaluating, assessing, and reporting on the privacy implications of their enterprise IT systems.
