Secure M365 Collaboration with a Zero Trust Framework
Increase security posture with a focus on least privilege across users and admin permissions, automated policy monitoring and enforcement, and data exposure reduction
Don't just protect with a moat - Evolve your security model in M365
A modern threat protection strategy that relies on user authentication and data level tagging for M365 is not enough to satisfy a "never trust, always verify" model. If your organization isn't taking proactive steps to ensure employees, administrators, and guests only have access to site collections, Groups, and Teams they need within M365 you are leaving the data within those collaborative workspaces vulnerable. Leverage our Confidence platform powered by AvePoint Online Services to secure your collaboration.
Reduce insider threats
Make sure every person's access to M365 is to information they only need.
Optimize policy compliance
Automate policy enforcement across workspaces and content while reducing policy oversight IT burden.
Prioritize security issues
Monitor sensitive data, the risk of exposure, and where the data is being accessed.
To say that AvePoint tools are valuable to us can’t be stressed enough.

Whether you need to manage by application, department, or location, the bottom line is anyone with admin permissions will gain access to your entire tenant. Not only will EnPower break down administration permissions with role-based access controls (RBAC) architecture to focus current admins on their assignments but opens the possibility of who can complete daily tasks creating much-needed efficiency and scale.
Manage multiple tenants in one window for complete visibility across your organization
Enable systems integrators to manage the scope of content and services they've been contracted to manage without over-privileging them with access to another division's content.

Can your sensitive data live in a "free and open sharing" system?
With AvePoint’s Cloud Governance, you can empower users to create Teams, Sites, and Groups in real-time, automatically protected by the policies and procedures required to ensure your most sensitive data is safe. From the very moment, a Microsoft 365 workspace is provisioned, it enters the lifecycle management process. Organizations can right-size their policies to ensure that provisioned assets have the correct classification, retention, metadata, and access controls in place from the outset. Going forward, workspace owners can also be automatically asked to review permissions and metadata and revise or confirm as necessary.
Oversee configuration settings, membership, and ownership change requests, with the ability to delete, revert, or notify of unauthorized changes
Improve data quality and speed up processes with automated, structured end-of-life processes that trigger alerts for potentially idle or irrelevant sites and content
Ask workspace owners to explicitly confirm extending a workspace’s lease or flag it for managed disposition
- DATA: PROTECT AND MONITOR
Easily enforce controls for sharing, permissions, membership, and configuration.
Automate and monitor security policy enforcement
By combining AvePoint’s Policies and Insights products your organization can easily enforce Microsoft 365 security rules and best practices while continuously monitoring and prioritizing action on your biggest risks. Get started by defining the rules for your organization from scratch or choosing from 30+ pre-loaded policies, including external sharing, ghost guest user detection, and Teams settings enforcement. Then measure your potential exposure with our out-of-the-box Risk Assessment Report that will summarize changes in your environment, as well as identify and prioritize high-risk action items that require immediate action.
Automatically detect, notify, and revert configuration drift and security issues. We pull directly from Microsoft 365 data, so no need to worry about throttling issues.
Prevent oversharing to external users and unauthorized changes on permissions or security settings
Gain context from basic permissions reports by cross-referencing an item's Sensitive Information Type with historical audit logs
