The Documentation for Azure Information Protection been updated on the web and the latest content has a May 2019 (or later) date at the top of the article.


It's been a quieter month after our double client release last month. But not too quiet because May saw label migration go into general availability (GA), Adobe released their protected PDF viewer for macOS, and we have updated support statements for the scanner.

We listen to your feedback and try to incorporate it whenever possible. Let me know if you have feedback about the technical documentation for Azure Information Protection. I also encourage you to head over to our Yammer site to see what others are discussing.
