LiveTiles and Nucleus Cyber Announce Solution to Govern and Secure Microsoft Teams Collaboration

Joint solution combines governance and information protection to easily provision and apply data-centric security in Microsoft Teams

NEW YORK – Dec. 3, 2019 – LiveTiles Limited (ASX: LVT), a global software company that empowers its users to create their own intelligent workplace experiences, announced the release of the Secure Collaboration for Teams solution with Nucleus Cyber, the intelligent data-centric security company for the modern workplace.

For many organizations Microsoft Teams (Teams) fills an essential gap for group communication and productivity, an area where other collaboration tools have fallen short. However, Teams sprawl, while excellent for organic adoption, can present governance and security challenges for organizations. When Teams is not managed properly it can lead to issues that damage the business value it delivers and leave the company exposed to risk from data misuse. The Secure Collaboration for Teams solution combines governance and information protection to easily provision and enable data-centric security in Teams to help drive adoption. This allows users to collaborate on sensitive data without concern of violating an organization’s governance or IT security policies. This joint solution has resonated with organizations in highly regulated industries such as finance and healthcare.

“Microsoft recently announced over 20 million people use Teams on a daily basis, up from 13 million in July. Its explosive growth requires organizations to be able to quickly provision new sites and secure the content shared within them from the start,” said Kurt Mueffelmann, CEO of Nucleus Cyber. “While Teams provides powerful collaboration capabilities, if sharing is left unchecked it can create serious security and compliance issues. Secure Collaboration for Teams provides a powerful one stop solution for governing teams and securing sensitive content to ensure productivity without the risks of internal threats caused by unrestricted sharing.”

Helping Users Work Efficiently and Securely in Microsoft Teams

Secure Collaboration for Teams offers a simple solution for secure digital workplace provisioning. Organizations gain fine-grained control of governance and information protection to easily create and provision secure Teams sites.

Key capabilities:

  • All Teams automatically adhere to company governance, compliance, data-centric privacy and security policies upon creation.
  • Create Teams with the appropriate settings and metadata to ensure findability and systematic governance.
  • Apply granular security to ensure sensitive/confidential files and chats are shared only with authorized internal and third party individuals and groups according to business policies.
  • Empower Team owners to apply additional granular protection over files and chat content directly from within the Teams UI reducing the need for IT resources.
  • Set-up Information Barriers between internal communities, such as business units, research groups and traders in financial securities companies to meet regulatory compliance.

“This latest collaboration between LiveTiles and Nucleus Cyber is a natural extension of our existing technology integration,” said Dan Diefendorf, President of LiveTiles. “Partnering with Nucleus Cyber allows our customers to easily add data-centric security at the time of provisioning to protect sensitive information shared within the platform from unauthorized sharing internally and externally.”

The Secure Collaboration for Teams solution is now available. LiveTiles and Nucleus Cyber will be showcasing the joint solution at the European SharePoint conference in booth 17 from December 2– 5 in Prague, the CDSA Content Protection Summit December 4 in Los Angeles, and SharePoint Fest Chicago December 9–13 in booth 11.
