inSync extends its data availability and governance capabilities to cloud apps, starting with Microsoft Office 365.

As a cloud administrator, you can configure inSync to integrate with Office 365. This integration lets you follow and govern user data - across endpoints such as laptops and mobile, and in cloud applications.

inSync uses the email address of inSync users to map the users to their Microsoft Office 365 account.

inSync uses either of the following information to map the users to their Microsoft Office 365 account

  • Email address of inSync users
  • User Principal Name (UPN) from a configured Active Directory.

To configure the user account access settings, see Configure user account access settings.

Cloud Apps backup data is not a part of individual user's quota. To know what is a user quota, see Assign user quota for data backup.
