How can you effectively bridge the gap between your organizational policies and Office 365 regulatory compliance requirements? There is a way to kill two birds with one stone: You can streamline compliance processes while staying on top of user behavior to harden your Microsoft cloud security and prevent data loss. Netwrix Auditor for Office 365 will help you successfully tackle these challenges and meet your compliance needs.

From the moment your organization obtains a patient’s electronic protected health information (ePHI), you must take full responsibility for its safety. In fact, if your healthcare organization stores sensitive data in its cloud-based Office 365 environment, it is subject to the strict Office 365 HIPAA compliance requirements — so you must regularly provide evidence that your security controls align with those Office 365 HIPAA compliance requirements.
Netwrix Auditor can help you establish controls aligned with the following Microsoft Office 365 HIPAA compliance requirements and prove that those controls are in place:
Do you have to ensure Office 365 PCI compliance? Did you know that Microsoft acknowledges that Office 365 doesn’t provide functionality for processing, transmitting or storing PCI-governed cardholder data? But an auditor might very well ask you for proof that you never share credit card number via emails or on your SharePoint Online sites, or if you do, that such data is properly protected. Without effective regulatory compliance processes, you may be unable to provide evidence that the required Office 365 security and data security controls are in place — and failing to comply with PCI compliance requirements could result in huge fines and ruin your organization’s reputation.
Netwrix Auditor can help you provide the evidence auditors demand that your cardholder data is safe and no unauthorized users have access to it. Specifically, the solution will help you comply with the following PCI DSS requirements for your Office 365 environment:

Netwrix Auditor can help you address the following key provisions of GDPR in Office 365:
