Despite the growing dominance of Office 365 as a communications service, it has significant limitations with respect to compliance. These limitations create a need for third-party compliance capabilities in order for organizations to fully satisfy their regulatory and legal compliance obligations.
This white paper explores the limitations in Office 365, and points to third-party offerings that enable organizations to meet their compliance obligations.
- Why it’s important to be completely compliant
- What the most common compliance issues are and how to overcome them
- What the penalties are for non-compliance
Office 365 is a robust platform that offers a number of useful capabilities. However, it lacks a variety of compliance and eDiscovery-related features and functions and requires the use of third-party solutions in order to satisfy compliance obligations. Consequently, Osterman Research recommends that organizations carefully evaluate the compliance capabilities within Office 365, determine where the deficiencies exist for their particular situations, and deploy third-party tools to address these inadequacies.
