We’re constantly striving to make the process of protecting information easier and simpler for both users and admins. To help with the initial step in protecting your information, we’re happy to announce that starting February 2018 all Azure Information Protection eligible tenants will have Azure Information Protection on by default. Any organization which has Office E3 and above or EMS E3 and above service plans can now get a head start in protecting information through Azure Information Protection.
The new version of Office 365 Message Encryption which was announced atMicrosoft Ignite 2017, leveraged the encryption and protection capabilities of Azure Information Protection. We have continued to make significant improvements in the product since it’s initial launch and are excited to announce new capabilities in both Office 365 Message Encryption and Azure Information Protection.
