Enterprise collaboration platforms such as Microsoft Teams promise end users a better way of working. With many of today's employees following hybrid or remote work models, collaboration technology offers a centralized hub for colleagues to connect and streamline workflows. However, before deploying any workstream collaboration platform, your IT team must address three areas of governance – digital sprawl, workspace configuration and guest access – to ensure your enterprise without sacrificing the employee experience.

Enterprise collaboration platforms such as Microsoft Teams, Slack and Cisco Webex Teams promise end-users a better way of working. With many of today’s employees following a remote or hybrid model, collaboration technology offers a centralized hub for colleagues to connect and streamline workflows.

At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, companies began rapidly adopting and deploying new Workstream Collaboration (WSC) platforms — a process that normally can take months or even years for large enterprises. But in the rush to get these platforms up and running, security and governance were often an afterthought.

As the adage goes, with great power comes great responsibility. In the absence of proper governance policies, end-users are left to their own devices to complete projects as efficiently and effectively as possible, sometimes in ways that are not the most secure for organizations.
