Learn What steps are in place to manage Teams sprawl? Are team owners accountable with policy based external sharing reviews? Are there rules around guest access or externally shared links? Does each team have an owner? These are just some of the questions that are surfacing amongst companies using Teams today and many do not have a strategy to address governance and security.

Having been deeply entrenched in delivering Microsoft Teams services since its infancy, MessageOps understands the needs of the community and the types of insights that will help them be more productive, secure and get the most out of their investment. Experts in the art of managing Microsoft 365, the company has once again created a platform that is both intuitive and a major time-saver.

“Team Captain allows IT professionals to create policies that will communicate with team owners to review inactive teams, teams that are sharing information outside the organization, and much more,” commented Chris Pyle, CEO of MessageOps. “Team Captain automates the manual process of scanning every team and seeing who is sharing external files, then communicating back to the team owner to make sure that it’s appropriate to share the information or not. We have simplified this process, therefore protecting data leaks and securing your Teams tenant, making both the IT professional and the team owner more productive.”
