Webex Governance & Retention Overview

Data Retention Policies

Compliance and internal regulations need data retention policies. Those usually indicate that after a certain number of days, data need to be fully erased. Policies like GDPR require data retention policies.


Data retention minimizes the risk of a breach or compliance events as less data is exposed into the cloud. AGAT´s engine allows users to freely configure retention policies based on different parameters such as:

  • Tags (set in the space management)
  • Active Directory Groups
  • Last activity date. For example, spaces that have been inactive for the last 30 days.
  • Scope - whether a Space contains external users.
  • Classification

Space Management

Until now, there hasn’t been a way of providing clear and complete insights of all the spaces in the company, their members, their last activity and whether they contain external users. Other information such as the users, group membership and external users is critical to handling both compliance and security risks. That information can be vital in order to preserve order and prevent security breaches by allowing external users into the incorrect spaces.

One of the most powerful tools that the space management provides is the capability to search spaces by a wide range of parameters, such as:

  • Title
  • Tags
  • Active Directory groups
  • Scope(internal/ External)
  • Specific external domain members
  • Type (Space / Direct message)
  • Last activity period
  • Space webex classification

Governance Policies

Governance Policies has the goal to provide a superior level of order and structure to the existing platform and avoid data cluttering. The Governance module allows to configure who is allowed to create spaces, who is allowed to add members, who is allowed to become a moderator and even set a moderator automatically.
