Many organizations that use Office 365 are exposed to security risks that they are unaware of. As they extend SharePoint to meet their business needs, they build applications using technologies that range from end-user Microsoft Flow to developer-focused SharePoint Framework. Unfortunately, all of these custom applications are capable of circumventing the security measures organizations have in place exposing the organization and its data to security…N/A

Rencore
For Microsoft shops that are doing custom development on the Microsoft cloud platform in Office 365 and Azure, the Rencore toolset is an absolute must, especially if you are involved in converting farm solutions to cloud, or just moving into cloud development for the first time.

Vanta seems excellent for startups, but I expect that they would be even more useful at bigger companies. I think it really helps people that haven't done SOC2 before. I also think it would help in monitoring compliance across teams with many users. If the budget is extremely tight, I think it would be possible to save money by not using it.

Pros
Rencore
  • Unique expert knowledge of their target platforms. Not many companies have such a unique position in their target market. Their employees have a deep understanding of SharePoint, Office 365 and Azure and also regularly advise Microsoft on these matters.
  • Community involvement and contribution to open source projects. Key employees at Rencore are considered thought leaders in their area of expertise and contribute to high profile Microsoft open source initiatives.
  • Rencore's unique position when it comes to code quality analysis in the SharePoint space sets it apart. There's really no alternative.
  • Platform governance is another Rencore strength. No other product provides the insights into your SharePoint Online environment with full auditing of not only configuration changes but also who changed which code where and when. Again no alternatives exist.

  • API driven capabilities offer a very easy way to connect your systems to their application.
  • It was mostly intuitive to figure out what needed to be configured.
  • I like how responsive they have been and how they have been able to outline the entire process for us from the start to the end.

Cons
Rencore
  • Rencore's product line is of course still a bit of a niche: SharePoint code quality is not something every organization on the planet is concerned with - although Rencore does much more than that.
  • We feel Rencore's marketing efforts are mainly targeted at technologists. There's a lot of other potential, especially for their platform governance product.

  • I'd love to see more options for integrations. ie a Datadog integration that checks on infrastructure monitoring.
  • Providing a general area for document sharing.

I don't know of any products that compete in the space and if there were any, they would not stand a chance against Rencore. Behind any good product is a team of highly skilled individuals, who all have the same goal, who are passionate what they do and lastly, are in it for the betterment of where they started; As Developers themselves. You can't buy that

Vanta's reporting was far superior, the price was competitive but my engineers running the project said that working with vanta would save them significant amount of time. Secondly vanta had more integrations so they could plug directly into the systems we use!

Return on Investment
Rencore
  • The clear impact was the amount of time saved code reviewing or going through lines of code marked off by other tools that are not relevant. We cannot put a number on it since the project started off with the tool in place but based on the rules applied it could be as high as 20% of the project time.

  • We were able to close contracts because we had our SOCII compliance in place
  • SOCII certification process was reduced by at least 80%

ScreenShots

Rencore Code (SPCAF) Screenshots

Screenshot of Using third party libraries allows you to build your SharePoint and Office 365 applications faster and focus on functionality specific for your organization. But regularly, security vulnerabilities are discovered in these external dependencies. If left unpatched, they become a security risk for your organization and its data. Rencore automatically warns you when any of the third-party libraries used in your applications has known vulnerabilities that could be exploited to hack your environment.Screenshot of Third-party libraries are regularly updated to improve performance and stability. Many organizations however don’t know when a new version of the library they use in their SharePoint and Office 365 applications is released and they keep using the old versions which exposes them not only to bugs but also to security risks. Rencore automatically warns you when a new version of a library that you use is available allowing you to verify the contents and the impact of the upgrade.Screenshot of Without proper tooling, it’s impossible to successfully enforce an application governance plan in SharePoint and Office 365. The number of ways in which users could possibly extend SharePoint combined with the thousands of pages and hundreds of settings that can be configured, make it impossible to continuously monitor for alignment with the organizational policies. 

Rencore helps you understand the configuration of your tenant as well as discover the different SharePoint and Office 365 applications used in your organization. With Rencore you will easily understand how these applications are built, which dependencies they have and which possible risks they expose your organization to.Screenshot of Your organization tailors SharePoint and Office 365 to its specific needs to get more value of its investment in the platform. But each organization has different needs and is subject to different laws and regulations. 

Rencore allows you to configure what policies you want to enforce in your tenant. Each violation gets reported so that you can take corrective action and successfully enforce your organization’s application governance plan.Screenshot of As you start discovering issues in your SharePoint and Office 365 environment, you will be taking corrective actions to mitigate the risks. Rencore helps you track these issues and the related tasks so that you can easily follow up on the status of each issue and control that your organization is improving over time.Screenshot of It’s not enough to have your SharePoint and Office 365 applications verified for compliancy with your organization’s policies before using them in production. As your applications evolve, they will require changes and each change exposes you to a number of risks. Rencore helps you track how your applications change over time, even if these applications don’t follow centralized deployment and are managed by power-users. Each change is assessed for potential risks that it could expose your organization to.
