Microsoft releases 3rd refresh of Azure Information Protection (Azure IP) public preview last week.
In the latest version, following new features are added.
- New label action: “Do not forward”
- New label action” “Remove protection”
The latest version (1.0.274.0) can be downloaded from the below URL
In this blog, we shall explore these new features. With this refresh, you can find the two new
templates in the Azure IP portal.
New label action - “Remove protection”
The main business scenario for this action is that the secret documents to be labeled
without encryption, so that the collaboration can be done over the SharePoint Online
or share to the users who can’t use RMS, but at the same time the right level of label
is applied. This action is useful in scenarios where just the labeling alone is required without encryption.
When this label is applied any previously applied protection will be removed by Azure IP
and if justification is enabled, then the user is prompted to enter the reason.
Below is the screen-shot of the document with “Remove protection” label action applied
which is opened in Office Online, whereas the encrypted document can’t be opened in Office Online.
