AvePoint New Product Update Enhances External Sharing for Microsoft Teams

Melbourne, Australia, March 27, 2019 – AvePoint today announced updates to its Cloud Governance solution that will enhance organization’s ability to safely collaborate with external users in Microsoft Teams.

Office 365 has more than 155 million monthly active users worldwide and Microsoft Teams is the fastest growing business application in Microsoft’s history. The commercial adoption rate of Office 365 and Microsoft Teams is accelerating as organizations experience an increase in productivity and collaboration by leveraging a modern, digital workplace.

Organizations are now looking to duplicate this modern collaboration experience with external users, but need to mitigate security and data governance risks.

The new updates to AvePoint Cloud Governance allows organizations to safely collaborate with external users by providing more granular control over which Office 365 workspaces and data can be shared with external parties.

New policy level controls—which can be applied to Office 365 Groups, Microsoft teams and Modern SharePoint Team sites—ensure each workspace has the appropriate level of external sharing based on the use and type of information stored in that workspace.

“AvePoint knows a successful deployment of Microsoft Teams needs to not only have a viable mechanism for enforcing governance policies, but also ensuring end-users have a positive experience,” said Blair Hainsworth, Managing Director Australia. “With our latest enhancement for external sharing controls for Groups and Group Team sites, we believe it can significantly increase end users’ productivity and collaboration and drive Teams adoption at the same time”

Microsoft Teams and external sharing were among the most frequently discussed topics at AvePoint and Microsoft’s two March workshops in Melbourne and Sydney.
