ShareGate uses consented permissions to obtain your Microsoft 365 metadata. Properties that may contain information sensitive to your organization may include:
- Group and team membership and ownership information - The names and job titles of members and owners.
- Group metadata - Group names and descriptions.
- Teams channel metadata - Display names.
- Document display names - For documents with external sharing links.
ShareGate stores---or caches---data with application-level encryption as well as encryption at rest. This ensures that engineers maintaining your production environment do not interact with your sensitive information.
When archiving, ShareGate needs to access the content and metadata of all your files. Whether your archive exists in ShareGate's default storage or your own, the data is encrypted and not accessible to anyone outside of your tenant.
