Inventory Vault

Browse the inventory of all the objects from your connected Microsoft 365 services.

  • Microsoft 365 users
  • Microsoft 365 groups

Precision Monitoring

Continuously monitor for violations against checks

This is where you find your governance dexterity. Pre-defined checks in Rencore Governance provide you a quick start to monitoring your environment. Once you quickly become in-tune with Rencore governance, you will want to create custom checks. Both options allow you to enforce a flexible, dynamic governance plan. Rencore Governance continuously monitors for violations against the checks you have set and informs you to act.

Visual Data Manager

Create reports, group them into dashboards, and share them with stakeholders.

You can turn your data into easy-to-understand information with clear and comprehensive reports and dashboards. Automatically generated, they display everything you need to act from inventory information to check information. The business-friendly reports and dashboards make it easy to share with stakeholders. You can set frequent report updates on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.

Secure Data

Keeping data secure is our priority

On top of offering best-in-class customer support throughout your customer success journey, keeping your data secure is our priority.

Rencore Governance infrastructure is hosted on Microsoft Azure and passes all regulatory compliance checks and security controls. Once Rencore Governance is connected to the specified tenant and selected services, it will scan daily for metadata only, and all data collected is double-encrypted in transit and at rest. Rencore Governance uses AzureAD applications and the Microsoft Graph to collect information and uses a granular least required privilege approach. Users can decide whether they would like their data hosted in the US or European data centers, depending on their location (more supported data centers will be added based on customer demand). For more information, follow this link to our knowledge base.
