There are multiple security alerts that will help you keep an eye on:

  • Changes in team, group, and site settings
  • User activities
  • Sharing across the environment
  • File activities

Get the right information at the right time! You can configure alerts for a specific user type (external or internal), particular IP ranges, everything outside a whitelisted range, or even by those who performed a particular action.

SysKit Point lets your owners configure alerts for their teams, groups, and sites in two clicks, without requiring any additional administrative privileges.

Customize Permissions Review 18.0.

SysKit Point enables you to schedule regular access reviews and empower your owners to take responsibility for their content’s security. SysKit Point sends automated tasks to their emails and asks them to review owners and members and validate sharing across their teams, groups, or sites. The streamlined wizard leads them through the process and ensures complete visibility for both owners and Office 365 administrators.

And now, from this version, you can go fully custom! You can create multiple permission review policies and have them applied to selected sites, teams, and groups. SysKit Point will guide you to create multiple permission review templates based on your needs.

For instance, the same security rules may not apply to the HR and Marketing department. So, with this customization you can choose the level of the access review for your content owners to perform. Is it only external sharing or a complete recertification of users and sharing, we leave it up to you.

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 reviewneeds to occur

Optimize your Budget With Office 365 License Reports18.0.

Use the new SysKit Point licensing reports to gain deeper insight into your Microsoft 365 license consumption and overall spending. Monitor:

  • underutilized licenses,
  • which licenses can be reallocated or degraded to a lower-cost edition.

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.
