Microsoft Information Protection

As information moves both inside and outside of the organization, organizations are unable to protect their sensitive data as it leaves the organization. With exponential growth of data and mobility, it is important to implement a security strategy that meets your security objectives and also meets the changing compliance and privacy requirements.

WWT Delivers Microsoft Information Protection Solutions  

As a trusted advisor, World Wide Technology (WWT) can help customers adopt the Microsoft Information Protection solution which gives customers a broad coverage across devices, apps, cloud-services and on-premise apps. With flexible protection policies, you can customize these policies to meet your unique security and compliance needs and integrations means the solution are built into the apps and services to help employees stay productive. Microsoft Information Protection is extensible, so customers get additional coverage from partners extending protection to their apps and services. 

The suite of Microsoft technologies provides a comprehensive, flexible, integrated and extensible way to protect your data across devices, apps, cloud-services and on-premises. The Azure Information Protection solution is a cloud-based solution which lets you classify, label and protect your data. Microsoft 365 Information Protection prevents accidental or inappropriate sharing of information with the Microsoft Data Loss Prevention tool. Microsoft Cloud App Security (MCAS) gives comprehensive cloud security to protect and control sensitive data in cloud apps and Windows Information Protection helps prevent leaks of important organizational data on Windows 10 devices.

Microsoft Information Protection discovers your sensitive information such as PII (Personally Identifiable Information) across a variety of locations including devices, apps, cloud services and on-premises. Sensitivity labels to files can be applied manually or automatically and data security configurations can be easily configured such as encryption, digital rights management and visual markings. View trends on sensitive data, monitor policy violations and risky behavior along with fine-tuning policies to balance security with end-user productivity. Accelerate your path to compliance by enhancing security and privacy posture to comply with regulatory requirements such as HIPAA, PCI-DSS, GLBA, GDPR, and CCPA.

Azure Information Protection

AIP is a cloud-based solution that enables organizations to discover, classify, and protect documents and emails by applying labels to content. The unified labeling client extends labeling, classification, and protection capabilities to additional file types, as well as to the File Explorer.

Microsoft 365 Data Loss Prevention

To comply with business standards and industry regulations, organizations must protect sensitive information and prevent its inadvertent disclosure. With Office 365 Security & Compliance Center, you can identify, monitor, and automatically protect sensitive information across Office 365.

Microsoft Cloud App Security

A Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) that supports various deployment modes including log collection, API connectors, and reverse proxy. It provides rich visibility, control over data travel, and sophisticated analytics to identify and combat cyberthreats across all your Microsoft and third-party cloud services providing simple deployment.

Windows Information Protection

Helps to protect against this potential data leakage without otherwise interfering with the employee experience. WIP also helps to protect enterprise apps and data against accidental data leak on enterprise-owned devices and personal devices that employees bring to work without requiring changes to your environment or other apps.
