What is Azure Information Protection?

Azure Information Protection (AIP) is a cloud-based solution that enables organisations to classify and protect documents and emails by applying labels. For example, your administrator might configure a label with rules that detect sensitive data, such as credit card information.

Azure secures your data using various encryption methods, protocols, and algorithms, including double encryption. For data at rest, all data written to the Azure storage platform is encrypted through 256-bit AES encryption and is FIPS 140-2 compliant. Proper key management is essential.
