MetaVis Feature of the Day: OneDrive for Business Sharing Analysis

May 30, 2014

MetaVis Platform allows administrators to monitor OneDrive for Business usage and activity trends. Graphical dashboards display information like space distribution and file type analysis to understand whether and how organization employees use their personal sites.

One of these reports is particularly interesting for security analysis and data leaks prevention. Content sharing report visualizes external parties who can access internal content because this content was shared by inside personnel. Content sharing report allows to drill down to the user who shared the content and ultimately allows to locate the content itself. For some people, the absence of this transparency to see how the content is shared with 3rd parties is the last road block holding them from adopting OneDrive for Business in their organizations. MetaVis brings this transparency with OneDrive for Business Management Suite.
