Download Free 20-Day Trial

If your organization relies on SharePoint Online to implement your collaboration strategy and enable employees to share and manage information, then you must be aware that its underlying cloud infrastructure makes SharePoint Online hyper-vulnerable to both outsider threats and bad actors from within. Any change to your site permissions or unauthorized read access event can turn into a security breach if you don’t catch it in time. Only a reliable SharePoint Online reporting tool can help you stay on top of what’s happening in your SharePoint Online by providing reports enriched with valuable insights that enable you to spot, track and neutralize data security threats before they cause any damage.

Using the built-in tools for SharePoint Online reporting

To help you mitigate the risks of unauthorized data access or site changes, Microsoft Office 365 offers some built-in SharePoint Online reporting and alerting functionality. But the out-of-the-box SharePoint Online reports are limited, which means you must manually sift through mountains of audit log data in order to find answers to your specific questions or dig deep to find the root cause of an incident. Plus, every time you need a report, you’ll have to generate and export it into Excel format, because no subscription options are included. Are you ready to spend your precious time on this when every minute counts?
