Hi Everyone, and welcome to this month’s posting from the AIP team to ensure you always know what we are working on, what’s in the current releases of AIP and any other information that we can include to help you stay current. With that, I will hand over to Adam Hall who leads our Customer and Partner Experience team. Dan. Hello again to our Azure Information Protection community! We encourage you to visit last month’s Azure Information Protection Status update in case you missed it, and of course we’re listening to your feedback and feature requests .

Other things to be aware of:
  • The RMS Protection tool is moving to End Of Life on February 10, 2018. This functionality is replaced by the Azure Information Protection client.
As we let you know previously, we have adopted UserVoice as a platform for you to tell us what we should be working on, and I would ask and encourage you all to take a look and place your votes to help us understand the priorities you have.


We hope this helps you with your testing, planning, and deployments and we welcome your commentary and feedback. We also know this can be a lot to absorb, and we are here to help!
