Product Details: Microsoft Azure Information Protection Premium P1 Subscription
The Azure Information Protection (AIP) subsciption provides a cloud-based service used to encrypt data and restrict some functions via a content labeling system. These labels prevent unauthorized actions such as printing, viewing, copying and downloading content, based on the organisation's policy.
AIP provied a capability for companies that must restrict access and functionality to sensitive digital assets. Organisations in certain industries, such as healthcare, legal, manufacturing or financial services, must comply with regulations that require sensitive data to have tighter restrictions.
AIP supports many content types, including email, text, image, Microsoft Office files and PDFs. AIP protects files stored in on-premises file servers and in cloud platforms, such as SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business.
Access to information can also be controlled by specifying permissions on shared data. It’s simple to use and deeply integrated with Office 365.
Information Protection helps organisations discover, classify, label, and protect sensitive documents and emails.
Admins can define rules and conditions to apply labels automatically, users can apply labels manually, or a combination of the two can be used - where users are given recommendations on applying labels.
