Information Protection and Control with Microsoft Cloud Services
Microsoft recently released a couple of technical documentation regarding Information Protection and Control (IPC) in Office 365 and Exchange Online, using Rights Management Services (RMS).
- Microsoft Rights Management service (RMS) whitepapers
The NEW Microsoft Rights Management service (RMs) offering (microsoft.com/rms) provides the capability to create and consume protected content such as e-mail and documents of any type. Such a capability is available as a standalone subscription (for your on-premises infrastructure with the Microsoft Rights Management connector) or is part of the Office 365 Enterprise subscription, natively integrated with Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, and Microsoft Office to apply persistent protection to the content to meet the business requirements of your organization.
The Microsoft Rights Management suite is implemented as a Windows Azure service. Beyond the available RMS enlightened applications on the market, it comprises a set of Microsoft Rights Management sharing applications that work on all your common devices, a set of software development kits, and related tooling. By leveraging Windows Azure Active Directory, the cloud-hosted Microsoft Rights Management service acts as a trusted hub for secure collaboration where an organization can easily share information securely with other organizations without additional setup or configuration. The other organization(s) may be existing Microsoft Rights Management service’s customers but if not, they can use a free Microsoft Rights Management for individuals capability.
The whitepapers available as part of this download covers the various aspects of the offerings and provide in-depth information to evaluate or use the Microsoft Rights Management service and its components. For an overview of the NEW Microsoft Rights Management service offerings, see the whitepaper NEW Microsoft Rights Management service.
