New Data Loss Prevention capabilities in public preview

We are excited to announce public preview of a range of new Power Platform Data Loss Prevention (DLP) policy capabilities. New capabilities include a new enhanced user interface in the Power Platform admin center for defining DLP policies, which additionally enables the ability to block connectors as well as user interface support for including HTTP Connectors in DLP policies.

Intuitive DLP policy wizard in the Power Platform admin center

We are introducing a new intuitive user interface that enables you to configure DLP Policies in the Power Platform admin center user interface by providing a  a wizard-like experience for a step-by-step DLP flow. We have added key attributes to the connector list like publisher, type/class,  documentation link, etc. Similarly, key attributes are added to environment list like type, region, created by, etc. These attributes make it easy for you to search, sort and bulk select and move connectors and environment across categories. The new user interface also provides a summary view for reviewing settings before committing your DLP changes.

Ability to block connectors

This new, highly requested feature gives you the ability to block connectors in addition to the existing ability to classify connectors as ‘Business’ or ‘Non-business’. All third-party connectors and Microsoft premium connectors can be blocked. Only Microsoft standard connectors and Common Data Service, which is an integral part of the platform, are exempt from blocking. Alleviate your tenant’s security concerns by significantly reducing the connector exposure surface in broadly available environments such as the default environment.

HTTP Connectors’ parity in DLP UI

We have added the ability to classify HTTP connectors using the Power Platform admin center’s user interface. This makes it seamless to include built-in connectors – HTTP, HTTP webhook, and When a HTTP request is received – into DLP policies.
