It goes without saying that the race to protect and secure data is never ending. Today Microsoft announced its latest attempt to bolster data security and augment its Azure Rights Management service with a new program called Azure Information Protection service.
The tool is designed to give power to the end user in the form of classification and labeling. Once a document is classified and labeled, administrators can assign varying levels of protection commensurate with the criticality of the data it contains. This would mean that the security would travel with the data as it moves through the internet and between devices. The tool would even allow administrators to track documents and revoke access on-the-fly should they be found to be in the wrong hands or destination.
