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 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 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 need 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.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
