Difference between AIP and RMS?

Not applicable

Hi there


I'm looking for information about that. Found the same question in the AIP FAQ but it doesn't really answer the question. It says that RMS is now part of AIP.


Perhaps there is a chart out where I can see what can be done with each of them or what CANNOT be done with it.

I read a lot about this but still I'm little confused so if someone's asking me...


Thanks and best!

RMS is the protection component of AIP, that can encrypt and set rights in documents, that persist wherever the document ends up (email, uploaded, copied etc.).  Azure Rights Management is included in some Office 365 plans as well. You can compare all these offerings here.


AIP bring labelling and classifying features that extend this to promote easy to use document handling and enforcement, with auto data classification in the top tier option. Other features only in AIP include document tracking and revocation.

Cian message is absolutely correct!
