New in SysKit Point: Security Alerts, License Reports, and Adoption Metrics

We have prepared some delightful new features in a new version of SysKit Point! Check them out and see how it can improve your budget, drive ROI, and automate security.

Automate Security with Point Alerts

An IBM study showed that the average time to detect and contain a data breach is 280 days. So, how can companies cut the detection time, respond faster, and reduce costs? Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR) technologies might be the answer to that problem.

We, in SysKit Point wanted to help you tackle those Office 365 security challenges and make your tenant bulletproof with a new security automation feature – Security alerts!

The alerts will help you act proactively on suspicious actions and prevent severe problems. SysKit Point lets your owners configure alerts for their teams, groups, and sites making them reliable partners in securing company content and minimizing risky sharing. It is all done in two clicks without requiring any additional administrative privileges.

With SysKit Point security alerts, you can automate regular checkups on suspicious activities by receiving timely notifications directly to your email.

Each notification contains critical information to figure out what happened on the spot without having to log into Point and search for details. That’s why they’re equally useful to your admins and content owners.

SysKit Point’s multiple security alerts will help you keep an eye on:

  • external collaboration
  • group membership changes
  • changes in team, group, and site settings
  • user activities
  • sharing across the environment
  • file activities

Customize Permission Review Policies

SysKit Point enables you to schedule regular access reviews empowering your owners to take responsibility for their content security. SysKit Point sends automated tasks to owners’ emails to complete the access governance tasks. They need to review access for their owners and members and validate sharing across their teams, groups, or sites. The streamlined wizard leads them through the process in a couple of steps.

And now, from this version, you can go fully custom! Let SysKit Point help you increase the overall security in your tenant by creating multiple permission review policies and have them applied to selected sites, teams and groups.

For instance, security rules may vary from department to department. HR might have stricter rules than the Marketing department, taking into account they’re holding sensitive information about employees. So, with this customization, you can choose the level of the access review you want your content owners to perform.

SysKit Point will guide you to create permission review templates based on your needs. For each permission review policy, you can define:

  • The owner who will be responsible for the review process
  • The type of content that needs to be reviewed (internally or externally shared content, groups, teams, or the entire content)
  • The specific sites, teams and groups to apply the policy
  • The interval of how often the review needs to occur

Regularly audit your sensitive content, lift the burden from your IT team, and delegate the responsibility to the ones with the best operational knowledge.

Cut Costs With Office 365 License Management Reports

Companies around the world are losing money each day on underutilized Office 365 licenses. Identifying those mismanaged licenses is the key to cutting costs, a KPI every business should strive to.

Without a proper offboarding mechanism, admins may forget to remove a license from a person who left the company. With the new Point licensing reports, it’s easy to reclaim licenses assigned to inactive, blocked, or deleted users and optimize license cost.
