How Rencore Governance processes data
Rencore Governance uses Microsoft Graph by discovering REST APIs and client libraries to access data on Microsoft’s cloud services such as Microsoft 365, Teams, SharePoint, OneDrive, Azure Exchange, Yammer, and Power Platform. All Rencore Governance instances run in separate Azure containers. Processing data from a customer tenant happens from inside Azure Container Instances (ACI). Every ACI is isolated in the network and is uniquely deployed for each customer.
