Control and help secure email, documents and sensitive data
Microsoft Azure Information Protection (Government Pricing) is a cloud-based solution that enables organizations to discover, classify, and protect documents and emails by applying labels to content. It is part of the Microsoft Information Protection (MIP) solution and extends the labeling and classification functionality provided by Microsoft 365. It helps you control and help secure email, documents and sensitive data that you share outside your company. From easy classification to embedded labels and permissions, enhance data protection at all times with Azure Information Protection – regardless of where it’s stored or who it’s shared with.
Automatic, user-driven, and recommended classifications
Data can be classified and labelled automatically through content detection rules. Users can also manually classify data or be prompted to make an informed classification decision.
Document tracking and revocation
Documents can be tracked to show who has opened the document and from which geographical location. Users can choose to revoke access to the document in the event of unexpected activity.
Protection using encryption, authentication, and use rights
For sensitive data, protection can be applied after classification and labeling. This includes encrypting the document, which requires authentication of the user and enforces user rights that define what can be done with the data.
Flexible policy and rules engine
A set of default sensitivity labels are available with options to define custom labels based on business needs. Rules can also be configured for actions to take based on classification.
Classification overrides and justifications
Based on policies and rules, users can be empowered to override a classification and optionally be required to provide a justification.
