In this episode, we talk with Sesha Mani, Partner Group Product Manager at Microsoft focused on security and compliance. We spoke with Sesha about SAM - that's SharePoint Advanced Management. We cover its core benefits – helping SharePoint and IT Admins address sprawl and oversharing – mapped to what it gives you beyond the core management aspects within the SharePoint admin center. SAM expands on the principles of securing and managing content and data with advanced access policies for secure content collaboration AND advanced sites content lifecycle management.
