New Data Loss Prevention capabilities coming to OneDrive for Business soon

Today we announced the upcoming availability of new DLP capabilities for OneDrive for Business. Initially we are focusing on “people-centric compliance”, i.e. recognizing that most people in your organization have no intent to maliciously use sensitive data but there’s always that “oops moment” when they inadvertently do the wrong thing. With the DLP capabilities coming you’ll be able to create proactive policies to remediate violations and empower your users with policy tips and notification emails so they can take the right decisions while working with sensitive data.

These capabilities will be available broadly across Office 365 in Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, and OneDrive for Business. Just another example of how your investment in Office 365 grows in value as we rapidly bring innovation to our service.

Today’s announcement is just one step in our planned DLP investments – there is much more to come in the second half of 2015!
