Endpoint Data Loss Prevention (DLP) | What it is and how to set it up in Microsoft 365

published 2 weeks ago by Microsoft Mechanics

Extend information protection controls beyond apps and services to device endpoints with Microsoft Endpoint Data Loss Prevention (or DLP). As more and more users work outside the traditional corporate walls, natively for managing Windows 10 devices and the new Edge browser, they can discover and protect sensitive data as it's being shared or transferred. If a user inadvertently mislabels a file, DLP will detect sensitive information and apply corresponding restrictions to prevent data loss. Think of DLP as an extra layer of security and a defense in-depth approach before content ends up in the wrong hands, whether that data has been proactively labeled or not. Join host Jeremy Chapman, as he gives an overview of Microsoft Endpoint Data Loss Prevention, shows you the user experience, and shares how easy it is to set it all up. ► QUICK LINKS: 00:00 - Introduction 01:06 - User experience: apply endpoint DLP policies at the file system level 02:18 - How it works: doesn't slow your PC, fully cloud managed, and always up to date 03:05 - Admin experience: how to restrict printing, set up alerts, and set context 06:11 - See how to prevent specific apps from accessing protected files 06:48 - Closing notes ► Link References: Find a script-based configuration package that you can deploy with your existing tools at Learn more about EndpointDLP, and try it out for yourself at Unfamiliar with Microsoft Mechanics?
