        Rights Management Services SDK 2.1 platform enables developers to build applications that leverage Rights Management Services (RMS) both with Azure RMS and AD RMS on-premises. It handles complex security practices such as key management, encryption and decryption processing and offers a simplified API for easy application development. For developers who want to add RMS support to their new and existing applications, the RMS SDK 2.0 helps make it easier to: • Author manageable, compliant and robust RMS-aware applications. • Encrypt user data persistently. The data remains encrypted regardless of the environment, device, or operating system. • Enforce a rich set of usage restrictions, such as preventing screen captures of your sensitive data. • Support enterprise-managed protection policies. • Support new authentication mechanisms and encryption algorithms as they become available.
