Digital Guardian Announces New Collaboration with Microsoft Azure Information Protection



Digital Guardian is excited to be partnering with Microsoft to offer an enhanced data loss prevention solution that integrates key components of Azure Information Protection (AIP) and Digital Guardian DLP (DG DLP).

We will be presenting at the Ignite Conference in Orlando on Wednesday, September 27, 2017. Attend our session "Extending Classification, Labeling, and Protection to Third Party Applications" at the OCCC Hyatt Regency Theater - Level 1 from 5:05 PM to 5:25 PM. Video demonstrations will also be available at the Microsoft booth throughout the conference.

Leveraging the new Microsoft Azure Information Protection dev platform, we’ll be demonstrating how joint Microsoft and Digital Guardian customers can extend their current DLP policies to automatically apply AIP controls. The combination of Microsoft’s new AIP and Digital Guardian’s rich visibility into file classification and movement, will better enable organizations to securely collaborate internally and with outside third parties while protecting files from inappropriate egress and unsanctioned usage (e.g. email, network uploads, copy to removable devices, etc.).

In the future, Digital Guardian will continue to leverage the Microsoft Azure Information Protection dev platform to support file protection across all supported Windows, macOS and Linux platforms. We’ll also support automated DLP capabilities for Microsoft Azure Information Protection Labeling for Office and Acrobat applications. We anticipate general availability of this functionality during the summer of 2018.

If you’re planning to attend the Ignite Conference, please sign up for more information or a meeting with DG and Microsoft Representatives or request to see the Digital Guardian DLP/Microsoft AIP video demonstration when you visit the Microsoft Booth. We look forward to seeing you in Orlando!
