What does "continuous scan" mean?

Rencore dynamically adjusts scanning speed and frequency to your environment.

Rencore Governance continuously scans your Office 365 environment which means, there is no fixed schedule when all data is updated.

Rencore Governance automatically adjusts the scanning frequency based on:

  • The amount of data.
  • The specific service that is being analyzed.
  • The complexity and effort to retrieve the data.
  • The frequency of changes in the service on your tenant.

This means that data that can be retrieved quickly through Microsoft APIs and will get updated more regularly than data that needs to be crawled.

Furthermore, Rencore Governance adjusts scanning load by either scanning fully or only incremental (for more details please see Full vs Incremental Scan).

Rencore Governance has also implemented methods to avoid getting throttled by Microsoft 365 (read more).
