Information protection

Protect your data no matter where it is or goes

Microsoft 365 has powerful, built-in features to help you protect sensitive data, stay in control in the cloud, and meet your compliance needs.

Tools for information protection

Protect and detect sensitive content

Information-protection technologies in Microsoft 365 by default help ensure that important data stays secure and only the right people have access to it. And Microsoft 365 lets users seamlessly exchange encrypted and rights-protected email to help prevent inappropriate sharing of sensitive data in documents and emails.

Stay in control in the cloud

With Microsoft 365, it’s your data, even in the cloud. You control access to your sensitive data with flexible, customizable policies. Use automatic or ad-hoc policies to protect sensitive messages and documents. Or flag more than 90 sensitive data types to protect credit card and passport numbers, medical data, and more.

Meet compliance needs more easily

Compliance solutions that are hard to implement or use increase the risk of inappropriate sharing and data breaches. Microsoft 365 helps protect sensitive data without sacrificing productivity. Office 365 data loss prevention (DLP) tools help protect content such as HIPAA-related and General Data Protection Regulation-related (GDPR) data.
