Miro's Enterprise Guard revolutionises security in visual collaboration
Thu, 22nd Feb 2024

Miro, a platform for visual innovation, has announced its revolutionary addition, Enterprise Guard, taking security and compliance within the visual collaboration market to a new, unparalleled level. The introduction of this product is set to change how teams administer content so that Miro is further integrated into their workspace.

With visual collaboration platforms gaining heightened significance as workspaces for fostering innovation, the focus on the governance and security of these spaces is increasing. Once Miro Enterprise Guard is enabled, it automatically identifies, classifies, and protects sensitive and confidential content within Miro. Moreover, it also administers the life cycle of the content from its inception through its retention till its disposal.

This level of service is hoped to boost confidence among enterprises to meet internal and regulatory compliance requirements. Enterprise Guard is alone in providing this unprecedented level of trust, compliance, and governance within the visual collaboration market.

Wayne Kurtzman, Research Vice President of Collaboration and Communities at IDC, remarked on the significance of Miro's offering, "The greatest pain points in adopting a collaboration platform are security concerns and keeping the ideas and content together and easily accessible."

According to Kurtzman, Miro holds the key to mitigating these security concerns while empowering the workforce and external users to collaborate easily, thus driving efficiencies across the board. He adds, "The need for enterprise visual collaboration is on the rise, and Miro has responded to industry security concerns with a well-integrated, seemingly easy-to-manage solution."

A sizeable volume of Miro's clientele bank on the platform to expedite innovation and slash time-to-market for new customer-facing products and services. Ranging from product design to delivery, these teams engage with strategic and highly sensitive data that requires compliance. Additional levels of data security and governance are also requisite to safeguard business-critical information. Miro Enterprise Guard enables easy management and access to complex and tree-structured data sets growing exponentially in Miro.

Varun Parmar, Chief Operating Officer at Miro, emphasised the need to proactively protect intellectual property and confidential information with the increase of strategic endeavours like planning and product development within Miro. "Enterprise Guard is unique in its ability to detect the information that needs to be protected across all content created in Miro. It gives customers, particularly IT admins and security and compliance leaders, the power to comply with their internal policies and external compliance obligations, and the assurance that their data is well-protected."

Martin Longley, Head of Digital Experience at MYOB, is optimistic about the level of security and compliance that Miro Enterprise Guard brings to online collaboration. Commenting on his product selection, he said, "We chose Miro Enterprise Guard because it provides us with a high level of security and compliance for our online collaboration. It helps us manage the security of our Miro users with confidence."

Miro Enterprise Guard is available now, and a virtual product launch event is planned to provide more information about the advantages of integrating extra levels of security, compliance, and governance into Miro through Enterprise Guard.
