Microsoft Azure Information Protection (AIP)
Azure Information Protection (AIP) is a cloud-based solution that helps an organisation to classify and protect its documents. After a document or email is classified (e.g. Highly Confidential, Confidential etc.) it can be tracked and data flows can be analysed to detect risky behaviours and take corrective measures.
When it has been installed you will see the Sensitivity icon appear in your toolbar for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and when creating a new email in Outlook.
Documents and emails can be classified automatically or manually when certain phrases are detected (triggered), such as Strictly Confidential, TMC Confidential or private information such as Credit Card and Passport numbers.
