Respected Contributor

In the new O365 Admin Center, Settings section, Security & Privacy Page, there is a Privileged Access setting. I cannot find any documentation about its purpose and what is affected when it is enabled. Can anyone provide me with some assistance?

That's Privileged Access Management: https://practical365.com/security/privileged-access-management-in-office-365/

Cool feature, but it doesn't look like it will ever go beyond just Exchange Online...

Thanks, that was my guess, but I wasn't sure since I could not find anything in the official docs for the Admin Center.
