Microsoft is set to offer a new cloud-based service that lets businesses classify, label, and protect data at the time of creation or modification. That protection then stays with the data at all times, regardless of where it is stored, with whom it is shared, or if the device is running iOS, Android, or Windows, according to Microsoft.
The new Microsoft Azure Information Protection builds on and integrates both Microsoft Azure Rights Management (Azure RMS) and data classification and labeling technology from Secure Islands, which Microsoft acquired last December. The new service is a component of Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing platform.
