Keep Your Collaboration Secure with AvePoint Policies


In the era of GenAI, combating oversharing is key to an organization’s data foundation. Create automated policy rules that enforce oversharing, including sensitivity label enforcement, direct sharing prevention, and guest user full control permission restriction. Additionally, set up notifications to specific users, administrators, or site owners. 


  • Create rules that align with your organization’s needs.
  • Configure rules for access, sharing, tagging, versions, and more.
  • Monitor rules, best practices, or policy compliance.


Reset and enforce access and conditional policies for tenant-level or individual services like SharePoint, Teams, OneDrive, or security and distribution groups. Policies like access request settings, control access for unmanaged devices, or membership restrictions will ensure that only approved users have access to the content. 


  • Build policies based on insights and best practices.
  • Revert or notify configuration drift and security issues.
  • Gain insights and apply batch fixes immediately.
