Egnyte ensures greater security across Microsoft 365 with latest integrations

Egnyte has launched new integrations with Microsoft, designed to ensure greater insight and security across Microsoft 365.

According to a statement, more specifically the new integrations are aimed at helping mid-sized organisations prevent data loss, address a growing number of regional privacy regulations, and simplify the overall management of content with minimal administrative overhead.

Egnyte launched a series of integrations with Microsoft Teams in 2020. This latest announcement covers the other most popular aspects of Microsoft 365, including the following.

Exchange Online/Outlook: To automatically identify and classify sensitive content in Microsoft Exchange Online and Exchange Server emails and attachments to help prevent improper disclosure or accidental data loss.

SharePoint and OneDrive: To classify and find regulated and sensitive content sprawled across different SharePoint and OneDrive libraries through a single pane of glass.

Word, Excel, PowerPoint: To access and co-edit files using the respective Microsoft desktop apps while their IT and security teams govern the data through Egnyte, creating a best of both worlds experience.

Egnyte co-founder and chief experience officer Rajesh Ram says, "Accelerated by the rapid shifts to remote work, Microsoft's cloud suite, increasingly front-ended by Microsoft Teams, is now pervasive among organisations of all sizes, which has introduced new and unfamiliar risks.

"Mid-sized organisations, in particular, struggle to implement the various compliance, security and privacy tools that Microsoft offers as add-on options to its service.

"The complexity challenges are particularly acute in regulated industries, such as financial services and healthcare."

Brookfield Properties director of IT service delivery, Tony Schwingel, says, “Our employees love using Microsoft 365 but with the multiple applications, including Teams, SharePoint, OneDrive, and desktop applications, we find it increasingly difficult to manage and secure all of our content.

"With Egnyte we gain greater insight across how our content is being accessed and used, as well as the ability to establish and enforce consistent governance across all of our Microsoft applications."

In addition to these announcements relating to Microsoft 365, Egnyte is also announcing general availability of a new Public Cloud Connector to synchronise selected files between Egnyte and Microsoft Azure object storage.

Previously in closed beta, this connector is being used in live deployments to support virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environments, cloud data processing, cloud archiving, and more.

Egnyte provides a unified cloud content governance solution for collaboration, data security, compliance, and threat prevention for multicloud businesses.

Egnyte is used to reduce risks and IT complexity, prevent ransomware and IP theft, and boost employee productivity on any app, any cloud, anywhere. Investors include GV (formerly Google Ventures), Kleiner Perkins, Caufield & Byers and Goldman Sachs.
