Office 365 compliance, auditing and security
The requirements of several governance protocols (SOX, PCI-DSS, HIPAA, GLBA, FISMA) require adhering to ever more sophisticated security requirements and the production of detailed compliance and audit reports.
Promodag Reports for Office 365 provides you with the discovery, alerting and auditing tools to respond to breach or governance requests from compliance managers and HR as well as adopt a pro-active, preventative security strategy.

License and resource management
The use of Office 365 licenses makes it essential to verify and audit the proper use of the resources available to users. Beyond bloated subscription costs, the maintenance of stale mailboxes leads to a loss of administration time.

Use reliable indicators to perform your daily health checks, identify future needs and plan future resource requirements. Identify potential anomalies and long-term trends by consolidating and comparing current and historical usage data.
- Group mailboxes by size and easily determine which quota to apply to them. Quantify your backup and archiving needs.
- List and notify users who are about to reach their quota.
- Sort mailboxes by SMTP domain.
- Show the breakdown of messages by day or hour in local time rather than UTC time.
- View the growth of mailbox sizes over time to highlight their size and percentage fluctuation, and derive usage and growth statistics.
- Automatically send reports to users or their managers.
Manage the content of user mailboxes
With the implementation of regulations such as GDPR, management of the content of mailboxes has become an object of major concern. E-mail administrator are therefore faced with eDiscovery requests to verify and ensure that the e-mail system does not contain sensitive information that breaches privacy regulations.

- Search for messages by keyword in mailboxes and public folders.

- View the breakdown and size of attachments by type.
- List the permissions granted on mailbox folders.
