Within Windows Information Protection (WIP) there is support for enlightened apps. These are apps that basically know the difference between personal and corporate data. Is the new Microsoft Edge already an enlightened app?

At present, no, Edge Dev/Canary is not an enlightened app. WIP remains an area of active investigation.

Any updates on this topic? This feature would be very important for our costumers. 

 

Many Thanks,

Hoping this in on a roadmap. As my organization is very interested in this. Windows Information Protection support equivalent to IE is a huge MUST. This in addition to IE mode and policies, will allow enterprises to consolidate on a single browser, which would be a huge leap forward.
