Office 365 Governance Automation

Automate Office 365 governance with SysKit Point. Delegate responsibility from IT team to site, Microsoft Teams, and Microsoft 365 Groups owners, who have operational knowledge of who should have access to their resources and what should they do with their inactive sites. Speed up the process by scheduling periodic access reviews and seting up automated lifecycle policy.

Office 365 Governance

Empower Resource Owners to Take Part in M365, Microsoft Teams, and SharePoint Governance

Strengthen up the company’s Office 365 governance by making Microsoft Teams, Microsoft 365 Groups, and site owners reliable governance partners.

Schedule periodical access reviews and lifecycle management to ensure that owners review all users and inactive resources. The entire process takes a few steps:

  1. An admin specifies the task: what resources to govern and how often
  2. Owners receive an automated email request to perform an action
  3. Any owner of a particular resource does the task in a simple Point interface
  4. An admin sees the progress of each active task and gets a detailed report on all review task activity
  5. Owners receive reminders to complete their tasks

Keep Your Tenant Secure By Requesting Regular Access Reviews

Audit your sensitive content with automated access review. Lift the burden from your IT team and delegate the responsibility to the ones with the best operational knowledge – content owners!

Apply multiple policies designed to fit your access governance needs. Define:

Where: Specific sites, Microsoft Teams, Microsoft 365 Groups, and OneDrive accounts
Who: The owners responsible for the review
What: Memberships, all content, or external sharing
How often: Every month or less frequently.

Request an instant access review to investigate potential security breaches.

Manage inactive Microsoft Teams, Office 365 Groups, and sites

Unclutter Your Tenant: Manage Your Inactive Teams, Groups, and SharePoint Sites

Have a clutter-free tenant! Use Point’s lifecycle management to automatically detect inactive SharePoint sites, Microsoft 365 Groups, and Microsoft Teams.

Set up a policy that requests owners to manage their inactive resources regularly. Have tight control of what they decided to do with their inactive sites, teams, and groups:

Keep – the resource is renewed.
Delete – the resource is deleted from Office 365.
Archive – the resource stopped being available to its members.

Check Out Point's Additional Governance Policies

Office 365 best practices - min number of owners

Minimum Number of Owners

Point detects when teams and groups don’t have a predefined minimum number of owners. It will send an email to existing owners for a review so they can assign additional owners.

Office 365 best practices - max number of owners

Maximum Number of Owners

If there are too many owners in teams and groups, Point will send owners a notification and ask to review ownership. You can decide who is the true owner and remove the unnecessary ones.

Office 365 best practices - orphaned workspace

Orphaned Workspace Cleanup

You can automatically assign the last owner’s manager, ask members to suggest a new owner, or let admins decide. Depending on the data’s sensitivity, apply different policies to different groups and teams.

Recertify Guest Users

Guest Users Recertification

Ensure that guest users are reviewed periodically or whenever Point detects them as inactive. Automatically remove the ones that no one takes responsibility for, leaving your environment secure.
