How this will affect your organization:
You can now alert or restrict your users from unauthorized or accidental sharing of any sensitive information via email in Outlook win32 by leveraging new and improved DLP Policy tips in new or existing DLP policies. These real time alerts and recommendations empower your organization to accurately identify sensitive information being shared with unauthorized recipients or domains and take appropriate action.
DLP Policy tips now support a richer set of DLP conditions (and corresponding exceptions), including the following:
- Content Contains Sensitive Information
- Content contains Sensitivity label
- Content is shared internally/externally
- Sender is
- Sender domain is
- Sender is member of
- Recipient is
- Recipient domain is
- Recipient is a member of
- Subject contains words
Additionally, DLP Policy tips now support advanced classifiers like Trainable classifiers, Exact data match (EDM), and Named Entities, as well as an override feature that gives end users the ability to quickly and easily modify or override policies (if allowed in the DLP rule configuration), ensuring that the sensitive data is always protected, while still allowing end users to work efficiently.
