Manage compliance policy

inSync Cloud Editions: File:/tick.png Elite Plus File:/cross.png Elite File:/cross.png Enterprise File:/cross.png Business

Overview

A compliance policy defines the company-specific and legal regulations and protocols. You can create a compliance policy to ensure that users in your organization follow the company policies, and that you are aware of the compliance breaches, if any. 

You can create a compliance policy by using a predefined policy template or by creating a custom policy template. 

inSync runs a global query and checks for compliance violations after you create or update a compliance policy, or after you update the sensitive data that is associated with a policy template.

Note: A compliance policy must be associated to a single policy template only.
