Proofpoint Enterprise Governance for Microsoft Office 365
Business enterprises create millions of files every year and they end up in disparate locations across the enterprise: hard drives, shared drives, removable drives, Microsoft Office 365, and Microsoft SharePoint. The nature of distributed enterprises exacerbates the issue as more employees work remotely, from multiple computing devices, and using a multitude of cloud applications. This unprecedented growth of business information creates serious legal, compliance and cost issues.
Proofpoint Enterprise Governance is an information governance solution that provides organizations the ability to monitor and apply policy to critical unstructured information, that is, information "living in the wild" outside of manage repositories. The solution leverages Proofpoint's patented "Digital Thread™" technology to enable business enterprises to track, classify, monitor, and apply policy to unstructured information across the enterprise—"in-place," or regardless of where it is stored. "In-place" information governance minimizes end user training and improves compliance by allowing users to not have to change their existing workflows with their files.
By proactively governing unstructured information, organizations can effectively protect brand and manage regulatory compliance, security and confidentiality. Organizations also increase visibility and control over information; mitigate the risks of court sanctions and regulatory or government investigations; minimize discovery costs; and leverage existing technical infrastructure.
