Quality is a pivotal part of every business, but Quality and Risk Managers know how difficult it can be to achieve or maintain. Quality and risk management solutions are available today to help manage these processes for you. However, they are virtually worthless if they don’t run on a secure and comprehensive platform.
Microsoft Office 365, a leading cloud-based service platform, offers robust, useful, and secure applications. One of these applications, SharePoint, enables companies to build efficient websites and services. Quality-focused technology providers today, such as BPA Solutions, offer quality and risk management solutions built on SharePoint, incorporating all the benefits that Office 365 has to offer.
Read about 4 Office 365 features that provide optimal security and risk mitigation tactics for quality and risk solutions below.
- Data Loss Prevention
Aside from your employees and customers, data is the most valuable asset of your business. Office 365 provides data loss prevention (DLP), which helps your organization protect sensitive information and prevent leaks. Office 365 DLP puts the power into your organization’s hands, giving it the control to identify, monitor, and automatically protect sensitive information across SharePoint and other applications.
- Information Management Policies
How you handle your content and information can vary based on industry, company size, or many other factors. Through SharePoint, information management policies enable organizations to control and monitor activities, such as content retention timeframes or which actions users are allowed to take with that content. Some of the predefined policies include retention, expiring out-of-date content, and auditing of document usage.
- Information Rights Management
Building on the last point, it is critical to set policies to make sure your business-critical information stays within your business’s walls. Office 365 Information Rights Management (IRM) helps prevent sensitive information from being printed, forwarded, saved, edited, or copied by unauthorized people.
Quality and Risk Managers know the destructive reality of having “too many cooks in the kitchen.” That’s why they need to have a clear log of who’s made what change and when. The Office 365 auditing feature tracks changes made by users to documents and other items on your SharePoint quality solution.
BPA Solutions has recently released a new edition of their BPA Quality solution, which is built on top of Office 365, infusing all of the features listed above into the solution and immediately integrating with other Microsoft technologies.
