Microsoft Teams – Great for Collaboration, Problematic for Information Security

The explosive adoption of Microsoft Teams to support collaboration and remote work is changing how people communicate and exchange information with colleagues and third parties. With over 75M users, the ability to quickly share information via built-in chat and file sharing capabilities has rapidly made Microsoft Teams a key collaboration app for organizations. However, the speed and simplicity of creating new Teams presents a challenge for IT and security groups tasked with ensuring business-critical information is properly protected.

Advanced Information Protection Capabilities for Microsoft Teams

Advanced Information Barriers

Out of the box Information Barriers completely cut off all communication and collaboration between users or groups of users. NC Protect’s flexible Information Barriers allow users to communicate and collaborate on permitted projects or topics, while simultaneously preventing unauthorized or accidental sharing of specific types of information between parties (e.g. trade secrets, insider information, etc.).

IT Friendly Private Channels

Simplify the creation and management of private channels to restrict access to specific individuals within a Team. Reduces admin overhead over time associated with managing large numbers of site collections and simplifies backup and life cycle tasks.

Security Scopes

Security Scopes can automatically be applied to Teams based on the team member, chat or file content and context to prevent accidental data leaks. Rules can be applied to multiple Teams or sites at once. Attributes are used to define Scope membership e.g. If a guest user is added a Team can be automatically moved to a new scope and rules applied.

Block Chat Content

NC Protect can block chat messages in real-time that contain sensitive information, personal information (PII, PHI), payment data, inappropriate content or language, enforce information barriers and more in Teams to enforce policies for information security and regulatory compliance in chats.

Dynamic Views & Watermarks

NC Protect works natively with Microsoft collaboration and security products to augment native features such as methods for viewing files, applying dynamic watermarks and encryption or restriction of attachments sent through Exchange Email.

Conditional Access & Security

NC Protect leverages dynamic access, usage denial rules and a secure viewer to ensure that only approved users can access and share your business content – internally and with third parties. Apply conditional protection rules centrally or locally, ensuring compliance, while enabling content owners to fine-tune rules.

Reduce Complexity for Faster Results

Get granular security without the complexity of native Microsoft tools to start securing content in hours, not days or weeks. Centrally manage data security using a single rule set to efficiently and dynamically control access to content and how users can share it and with whom, across the suite of Microsoft apps.


NC Protect is a complementary solution that leverages and adds value to your existing Microsoft investments with a less complicated and more efficient process for automating data governance and protection to secure collaboration. Our integration with the Microsoft suite is vetted by the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association.

Real Time, Attribute-based Access & Sharing Control

NC Protect augments native app security using the unique identity data builds over time.

Using attributes such as chat content, file name, authorship and date stamps, as well as more transient context like IP location, device or time of day, NC Protect applies conditional access and usage rights to support all business rules to enable every collaboration scenario.

NC Protect takes your data security policies and enforces them for each and every user and device, completely transparent to the end user.
