We are excited to announce the general availability (GA) of SQL Data Discovery & Classification in Azure SQL databases, Azure SQL Data Warehouse and Azure SQL Database managed instance. SQL Data Discovery & Classification provide a set of built in capabilities for discovering, classifying, labeling & protecting sensitive data.
This GA release significantly enhances existing Information Protection solutions as it supplements similar capabilities available in Microsoft SQL Server 2019, thus offering a cross-platform and hybrid (on-premises / IaaS / PaaS) data classification solution.
Discovering and classifying your most sensitive data (business, financial, healthcare, PII, and so on) can play a pivotal role in your organizational information protection stature. It serves as an infrastructure for meeting regulatory compliance requirements (such as GDPR, HIPPA, PCI etc.), monitoring & alerting on sensitive data access, hardening the security of databases containing highly sensitive data, and more.
Data Discovery & Classification is part of the SQL Advanced Data Security (ADS) offering, which is a unified package for advanced SQL security capabilities. SQL Data Discovery & Classification can be accessed and managed via the central SQL ADS settings.
