Season’s greetings, my fellow IT Pros of the world!
As you know, M365 is a set of services for business productivity, security and compliance. Across those services, Microsoft has interwoven an information protection ‘platform,’ which is referred to as Microsoft Information Protection, or MIP.
I was bit confused when I first heard about MIP because it looks/sounds/reads/seems alot like 'AIP' (Azure Information Protection). My first thought was "Oh, we re-named AIP to MIP." However, that's not right - AIP and MIP are two different types of things - but both are related to information protection.
It is Thanksgiving here in the US and I spent some quality time in my lab over the holiday, going through an “end-to-end scenario” with a part of that MIP platform - our recently-released Endpoint DLP .
I was moved by how cool this capability is, so I thought I’d share some screenshots/pictures of what moved me – some ‘moving pictures,’ if you will (a not-so-subtle reference to one of my favorite bands, Rush, their great album – Moving Pictures - and a sad-nod to the departed drummer/lyricist Neil Peart).
Let’s roll …
What does this look like for an end user? Let’s take a look…
A few FAQs:
So, there you have it folks … a quick run through of Microsoft Endpoint DLP.
Hopefully, this post helped clarify the difference between AIP and MIP, illustrated how several components of the MIP platform can be combined to provide effective endpoint DLP controls - and I hope the pictures “moved” you enough to get you started with this in your environment.
Cheers and Happy Holidays!
