AvePoint—a governance, compliance and management solutions provider—has introduced the latest release of AvePoint Compliance Guardian. AvePoint Compliance Guardian provides unified risk management from the moment data is created through its entire lifecycle, proactively monitoring and neutralizing violations of privacy, security, and compliance.

Organizations can now ensure information security across SharePoint, file shares, databases, and Office 365 with all-in-one scanning, reporting, and built-in issues resolution. AvePoint Compliance Guardian provides individualized reports and dashboards surfacing only relevant issues, automatically delegating violations to the right people so they can be addressed quickly.

Features and enhancements include:

Data Discovery: Continuously identify and review data with monitoring tools for alerts of potential privacy or permissions violations to resolve threats before they become costly fines. Businesses can scan and analyze data at the file and content level to better sort and secure every file, block inappropriate content, and protect valued assets. 

Data Classification: Standardize classification by automatically tagging new and existing content based on context and ownership. This saves time and reduces the burden on IT resources while allowing administrators to automatically enforce permissions and information governance policies.

Data Loss Prevention: Implement a plan of action to proactively monitor and secure data while enabling a collaborative working environment for end users. By integrating content-level scans with automated tagging, classification, neutralization of potentially sensitive documents, permissions and policy enforcement, as well as location-based mobile access controls, organizations can secure information while allowing users to work the way they naturally do.

Incident Management: Take action to quickly and efficiently resolve issues with security-trimmed and pre-prioritized reports, providing guidance to content owners and compliance teams to target the most critical violations.
