What's The News?

With our latest release, Theta Lake is fully supporting Microsoft's Viva Engage platform through capture of content, AI-based detections for risk and policy violations and archiving support. Microsoft Viva Engage (formerly Yammer) is a widely used digital experience platform designed to help employees feel more connected to their work environment, improve collaboration, and increase productivity.

As an AI-driven compliance and security platform purpose-built for modern communications like unified communications, enterprise social and employee engagement platforms, whiteboards and more, Theta Lake understands the importance of ensuring that communications between teams, departments, and partners are secure and compliant. By integrating with Microsoft Viva Engage, we are able to enhance the platform's capabilities and provide an even greater level of trust for organizations across all stakeholders, users, administrators, compliance and legal.

Enterprise Social and Workplace Engagement Matter

Employee experience platforms like Viva Engage are vitally important ingredients in today’s virtual organization communication fabric. Like unified communications platforms such as Microsoft Teams (which Viva Engage is a part of), today’s knowledge workers spend their work time living in these applications, creating content. Viva Engage is a place to connect and engage with leaders, colleagues, and communities. Users can converse, build communities around shared topics, find answers and brainstorm ideas and build collaborative teams. Microsoft Viva Engage is a multi-purpose platform that houses many different content types- messages, chats, images, that accumulates over time and grows exponentially.

Because of the high volume and velocity of data and the overall ubiquity of Microsoft Viva Engage, organizations also have potential risk in leaving it unmanaged. Compliance violations in regulated environments, policy violations that go against organizational standards (hate speech, sexual harassment, profanity etc), or data loss due to insider threat or user carelessness are all potential realities, not because of any inherent weaknesses in Microsoft Viva Engage, but because of the sheer volume of digital traffic over time and human nature.

The Theta Lake Difference

Theta Lake seamlessly integrates with and captures Microsoft Viva Engage content like conversations, stories, private messages, polls, edits, deletes, and GIFs to provide AI-based compliance and archiving with automated risk detection and dedicated review workflow. Theta Lake makes it easy to efficiently manage compliance while saving time and resources.

Our platform provides real-time detection and remediation of compliance risks across Viva Engage content like stories and conversations. Using natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning (ML), Theta Lake can identify potential compliance violations and flag them for review, allowing compliance teams to quickly resolve any issues.

Like all of our solutions, our integration with Microsoft Viva Engage delivers fast time to value, it's easily configurable and there isn't a need for a replacement of your existing archive, whether it's Office 365, coupled with Microsoft Purview, or any number of existing archives, Theta Lake will support it. Our goal is to support organizations who want to use Microsoft Viva Engage confidently, securely and compliantly so that they can encourage adoption and enhance productivity- immediately.

We're excited to be working with Microsoft and helping to bring improved collaboration, productivity, and security to the workplace. Together, we can ensure that businesses of all sizes can use Viva Engage with confidence, knowing that their vital communications are protected every step of the way.
