Social SafeGuard Announces Support for Microsoft SharePoint and Skype for Business

Social SafeGuard, the leading provider of digital risk management, social media protection and compliance solutions, today announced support for Microsoft SharePoint, as well as Skype (News - Alert) for Business. The connectors are flexible, deploy quickly and provide real-time visibility for administrators to protect Office 365 organizations, across on-premise and Internet-based deployments.

The general availability of the new SharePoint and Skype for Business Connectors within the Social SafeGuard platform address a key set of capabilities for the digital workforce built on Microsoft's (News - Alert) ecosystem. The new Social SafeGuard Connectors for SharePoint and Skype for Business help administrators eliminate digital risk associated with cyber threats, unauthorized account changes and potentially malicious activity transpiring on these platforms.

Monitoring digital channels with the capability to demonstrate controls to regulators and to automatically detect threats like malware infiltration, are becoming expected features of Digital Risk Monitoring (DRM) solutions. Digital risk becomes more pervasive when security incidents escalate in volume and severity around channels that subside outside the firewall, and when meeting compliance requirements are in jeopardy.

"As organizations commit to digital ecosystems like Office 365, which are built to be able to collaborate and share within groups, there's a growing ned for definitive governance and protection," said Jim Zuffoletti, CEO, Social SafeGuard. "Our flexible platform is purpose-built to meet the growing governance and security needs of the Office 365 organization to accommodate how employees share and communicate internally and externally with little impact on productivity. Our new Connectors for SharePoint and Skype for Business support our unique approach to reducing digital and cyber risk for customers who have standardized on the Office 365 ecosystem."

Key SharePoint Connector Benefits:

  • Architected to support content for both SharePoint on-premise and Office 365 deployments
  • Supports monitoring and remediation of Newsfeed content within SharePoint (social collaboration features)
  • Archive and security/compliance monitoring of content shared among groups

Key Skype for Business Connector Benefits:

  • Enterprise-class monitoring and remediation capabilities to reduce risk within a Skype for Business (formerly Microsoft Lync) organization.
  • Supports 1:1 and group chat content within Skype for Business, including all text formatting, icons and emojis.
  • Visibility for administrators into essentially all content in the platform.

This latest announcement comes shortly after the most recent release of Social SafeGuard's new Connectors for WhatsApp and Facebook Events, featuring new capabilities to automatically detect, archive, and immediately remediate social account profile changes that are either unauthorized or otherwise require supervision.
