Sharegate, the Montreal-based leader in SharePoint content, migration and management, has recently made a number of enhancements and changes to its toolset. After announcing a partnership with Nintex ahead of the May 2015 Microsoft Ignite conference, Sharegate announced record-breaking speed enhancements to its Office 365 & SharePoint Management platform. According to Sharegate’s May 12, 2015, press release, the company worked closely with Microsoft on the design of their migration API. Sharegate can move data from any SharePoint version to Office 365 quickly and seamlessly. Branded as their Insane Mode, the product allows larger organizations to deploy traditional cloud and hybrid SharePoint environments with large volumes of data with the click of a button.
Benjamin Niaulin, self-professed SharePoint geek and Office 365 MVP at Sharegate, provided some further insight into what’s on the horizon for the company in the coming months. Sharegate is “bringing security management capabilities to a new level on July 6, 2015, with Sharegate 5.5.” The company has invested heavily in security, and is looking to “help customers sleep better at night.” Their vision, proven and supported by an over 10,000 company customer base, will assist in the prevention of data breaches, enforcing security policies across the organization while ensuring that users only have access to the appropriate content. In addition, their enhanced reporting capabilities are getting a lot of traction, “offering unique insights about SharePoint On-Premises and Office 365,” said Niaulin.
With their sights set squarely on the migration marketplace, Sharegate is sure to entice additional customers to the platform with the new security release. As the emphasis on security continues to grow in this cloud-first, mobile-first world, it will be interesting to watch the competitive landscape as other companies compete in this very tight space.
