About PremCloud Connect

Every enterprise is in the planning stages of or in the middle of executing on a digital transformation program. At the core of these programs is the modernization of legacy applications, automation of business processes, assessment of Cloud/SaaS-based solutions, and globally digitizing enterprise collaboration. Enterprises are introducing a myriad of new solutions for instant messaging/chat, video teleconferencing, file sharing, scheduling, and collaboration aimed at improving employee productivity no matter where they are working from. With the growing number of collaboration applications in use and increasing regulation surrounding data retention and the handling of Personally Identifiable Information [PII], organizations are challenged to effectively govern and secure all of these data sources at the same pace at which the respective business units want to onboard them.

To address these challenges, PremCloud has developed our groundbreaking data lifecycle management platform solution, PremCloud Connect. PremCloud Connect provides enterprise customers the instant ability to implement the compliant capture of collaboration messaging content from all major enterprise collaboration platforms. This capability empowers our enterprise customers to confidently onboard new collaboration platforms rapidly and compliantly.

Agnostic Framework

Unlike other solutions in the market place which offer only a select number of data sources, output formats, and target repositories, PremCloud Connect offers an agnostic connector framework empowering enterprises with configurable outputs and targets. As a modular standalone solution for the compliant collection of data, PremCloud Connect works “out-of-the-box” with the most commonly deployed enterprise social media, instant messaging, and collaboration platforms. It can be provisioned on-premises, in your cloud infrastructure, or it can be delivered as a fully managed cloud service by the PremCloud team. PremCloud Connect is fully extensible and the Connect Management Console allows you to quickly and easily set up data channels to manage a wide range of sources including Teams, Skype for Business, Web Content, Salesforce, Zoom, Slack, Linkedin and many more.

PremCloud Connect stands alone in its ability to capture content from a wide range of enterprise platforms and to compliantly deliver data to a wide array of targets that include third-party archiving, storage platforms, supervision or analytics tools, data lakes, proprietary cloud technologies, or your own downstream augmentation of the data through the PremCloud Connect API. Data is presented to these targets in a native or containerized format [Native MSG, EML, JSON, XML, and more]. Use cases include [but are not limited to] compliant messaging and collaboration capture, application retirement, legacy data storage conversion/move, archive migration/consolidation, cloud to cloud migration, or federated data management. With PremCloud Connect, enterprise IT/compliance teams can confidently support the onboarding of new collaboration applications without worry of the compliant preservation and capture challenges.

Rapid Microsoft Teams Adoption

With the accelerated transition of enterprise digitization and remote collaboration, Microsoft Teams is quickly becoming the collaboration platform of choice for large global enterprises. Adoption continues to grow rapidly with an estimated 100 million users worldwide taking advantage of Microsoft’s leading business collaboration platform and the power of Microsoft 365. This trend is set to continue with approximately 300 million live seats in Microsoft 365 right now, which include access to Microsoft Teams. With two-thirds of Teams users interacting and collaborating with files within the platform, the challenges associated with these expanding channels of communication and the related data sprawl will undoubtedly increase in scale and complexity. Organizations required to comply with regulations from the SEC, FINRA, HIPAA, and other regulatory bodies are mandated to manage, preserve, and discover across the entire Microsoft data landscape, not just Exchange.

PremCloud Connect for Microsoft Teams

PremCloud Connect delivers efficient and compliant management of all of your Microsoft Teams communications and content, ensuring your organization is operating in complete alignment with all eDiscovery preparedness requirements and regulatory statutes. The PremCloud Connect for Teams connector provides unprecedented capabilities allowing your organization to harness and govern all of the critical communications and data within Microsoft Teams, including 1:1 chats, group chats, shared files, and library files. Our Policy Engine allows you to customize and automate the entire ingest and transformation workflow. Extensive customizations can be applied for profiling the collection of channel data, the output formats, and the target destination of your Microsoft Teams data.

We can host and manage PremCloud Connect for your organization and we will ensure the continual transformation of data from the desired data source and subsequent ingestion into the target destination. Connector management can be handled on a case-by-case basis or bundled packages are available.

Driving Microsoft Cloud Compliance

Microsoft Teams, built on the foundation of Microsoft 365, continues to grow and dominate the Workstream collaboration landscape, with Teams Channels, Groups, Messaging, Voice and Video Conferencing seeing broad adoption on a global basis, in alignment with the trend towards knowledge-based working practices. Year to date, adoption is up over 70%, with 75 million daily users of Teams. This is only expected to grow, as there are over 258 million paid subscriptions to Microsoft 365.

In the wake of the COVID 19 pandemic, Teams usage has accelerated exponentially with business leaders leveraging an already mature collaboration solution to empower secure agile remote office operations. One US-based organization rolled out Teams company-wide in a 4-day window to over 16,000 employees as an immediate business operations response to COVID 19. We don’t anticipate these short-term structural changes to be ephemeral, as a recent Gartner survey found that 74% of CFO’s are intent on shifting portions of the employee base to remote operations on a permanent basis.

While Teams is having an incredibly positive impact on how people work and communicate in the era of COVID 19, it presents both classic and brand-new roadblocks to governance, risk management, and compliance. Unlike Skype for Business, Teams is an active collaboration ecosystem that grows in data volume and complexity on an organic basis. Dealing with Teams channel-based collaboration and file storage streams demands intelligent and flexible solutions to dynamically capture and transition this data for a wide range of downstream uses, using customizable workflows for aggregation, processing, transformation, and transit.

Customers are increasingly looking to PremCloud to deliver unified compliance and capability enhancement for their Microsoft cloud applications and the PremCloud stack provides everything they need in an integrated complementary solution for end to end governance for the entire Microsoft cloud stack.
