Control your data

Automate data retention and deletion

Organizations face explosive quantities of complex electronic data. Office 365 Advanced Data Governance intelligently eases this data overload by using machine-assisted insights to help you discard ROT – redundant, obsolete, or trivial content.

Provide your own encryption keys for Office 365 data at rest

Customer Key for Office 365 lets you provide your own encryption keys and control when to revoke them to make your cloud data unreadable, which initiates data deletion.

Control access to data

Customer Lockbox for Office 365 can help you meet compliance obligations for explicit data access authorization. In the rare case when a Microsoft service engineer needs access to your data, you are in control and can grant or deny access to it.

Migrate on-premises and non-Office 365 data

The data import service for Office 365 makes it easy to move on-premises email and files into Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, and OneDrive for Business. Intelligent capabilities built into this solution let you filter data so you only import what you need into Office 365. Office 365 Data Governance solutions use connectors from our partners to import from a wide array of data sources.

Supervise employee communications

The new Supervision feature in Office 365 Advanced Data Governance gives compliance officers a practical way to comply with regulations. It lets you define policies for when and how to monitor employee communications and who can monitor them in email and messages in Facebook, Twitter, Bloomberg, and more.
