New features of AIP Azure Information Protection announced at MSingnite

Not having had the chance to free myself to go to Ignite, I nevertheless had time to attend a multitude of very interesting sessions. Last year Kyos began an in-depth evaluation of the document classification and encryption solution.

For a quick presentation of this solution click on the article.

AIP is now an integral part of Microsoft Information protection strategy, which brings a unification of labels and protection in the cloud and on-premises.

Gradually in the coming months, the supporters will be migrating to a new unified and harmonized console.

New templates ready for the GDPR allow data containing, for example, European citizen passport numbers to be classified. Microsoft has worked internally on the automatic discovery rules and will propose its detection rules as a basis for everyone.

All Office versions will include labels natively and without plugins by the end of the year. Whether it is in Word for Android, iOS, MacOs, Windows and Online versions.

Some examples showing the new interface.

SharePoint Online sites can also be classified by the end of the year using the same labels.

Windows 10 1809 (released at the beginning of October) will support native AIP labels and will allow for example to block the copy of a secret document to a USB key, a webmail or Onedrive personal. This prevents sensitive documents from leaking into an unauthorized location.

The new M365 unified interface will be deployed gradually over the next 6 to 9 months. However, in the meantime, the AIP labels will appear where the O365 labels are located.

The AIP scanner that allows you to automatically classify your documents stored on a SharePoint On-Prem site or File Server now has the ability to upload what it has classified directly to the AIP portal. The analysis of the log file locally in an Excel file is now a thing of the past. However, it should be noted that a Log Analytics subscription will be required.

From October, Adobe READER will natively support labels and protect documents even with the free version. This means you can easily convert an Office document to PDF format without losing AIP classification or protection.

Here is the official roadmap of the features to come by the end of the year. As you can see, these are the bricks that most often have the blocking points to sell the solution to our customers.

Within 6 months all existing customers will migrate to a new unified interface.

Contact Kyos to arrange a demonstration or training on this solution!
