Azure Information Protection scanner in public preview

Community Manager

We mentioned the Azure Information Protection scanner in our Ignite blog and demonstrated how it works in this Ignite session. We’re very excited to announce that the feature is now available in public preview. We hope that this helps you manage and protect your significant on-premises data and prepare you for regulations such as GDPR.


We released Azure Information Protection (AIP) in October of 2016, providing the ability to define a data classification taxonomy and have that set of information business rules applied to emails and documents. We call this CLP (Classify, Label and Protect) which ensures that your information is appropriately managed throughout its lifecycle – regardless of where it is stored or shared.




Read more about it in the Enterprise Mobility & Security blog.

Thanks Eric, I wasn't at Ignite so I'm checking out the session replay now.
