A Not For Profit focused on serving LGBTQ Communities Adopts SecureIT 365 to safeguard its Sensitive Data



The Humsafar Trust (HST) , a Not For Profit , was founded to reach out to LGBTQ communities in Mumbai Metro and surrounding areas. HST organizes advocacy workshops for health care providers, law enforcement agencies, judiciary, legislators, politicians and political parties, Government bodies, media, student community to sensitize them on Gay, MSM and TG issues.

Business Challenges

Humsafar was using GSuite for its Email and Document Storage for about 150 users. However, the  Senior Management was not getting complete  offline sync that is available in Outlook.  The user friendliness and functionality of MS Office was better than that provided by Google Docs. The Storage per user was also limited .  Besides the Meeting functionality available was not as robust and feature rich as provided by other options that were available.  

More importantly , due to the sensitive nature of the information and work involved, Device Management and Information Protection were important considerations especially for the Donors since the Work that the Field Staff does is very  sensitive in nature .
