Many organisations are unaware of the amount, and complexity, of data they hold. This lack of visibility can prevent, or discourage, organisations taking the necessary steps to protect that data across the entire information lifecycle.

This data management scenario also presents interesting challenges of ownership and control between IT & Governance teams, but Microsoft Purview can help bridge that gap.

Microsoft Purview can help address the following common data problems…

Microsoft 365 workloads can dynamically discover and classify data and apply protection and data leakage prevention. Microsoft Purview Information Scanner can inspect on-premises file stores and classify, label and protect files according to company requirements.

Information Protection labels can secure access and prevent oversharing or inadvertent sharing of sensitive data.

DLP can assist users in their everyday sharing of information by preventing accidental sharing of data, either through visual guidance or enforcement via policy.

Retain and delete data and records.
