Azure Information Protection Status Update – August 2017
First published on CloudBlogs on Aug 30, 2017
Hi Everyone, and welcome to this month’s posting from the AIP team to ensure you always know what we are working on, what’s in the current releases of AIP and any other information that we can include to help you stay current.
With that, I will hand over to
who leads our Customer and Partner Experience team.
Hello again to our Azure Information Protection community! We encourage you to visit
last month’s Azure Information Protection Status update
in case you missed it, and of course we’re listening to your
. Speaking of which, it’s been a busy month with updates for admins and developers, so let’s take a look.
We have added the ability to edit the default templates. You can now manage the default templates like other templates, including localization. We have translated the default policy to all languages that are supported by Azure Information Protection (English +29 other languages). Note that only new tenants will get the translations automatically (we don’t want to change your existing configurations!)

These updates were heavily influenced by your great feedback. Your feedback allowed us to ship new features, verify bug fixes, and generally improved our product. We thank you for this ongoing engagement!
RMS Protection tool
is moving to End Of Life on February 10, 2018. This functionality is replaced by the Azure Information Protection client.
As we let you know previously, we have adopted
as a platform for
you to tell us
what we should be working on, and I would ask and encourage you all to take a look and place your votes to help us understand the priorities you have.
We hope this helps you with your testing, planning, and deployments and we welcome your commentary and feedback. We also know this can be a lot to absorb, and we are here to help! Engage with us on
and let us know what’s important to you by voting on
It really is very easy to get started with AIP. We have a lot of information available to help you, from great documentation to engaging with us via Yammer and e-mail.
