Microsoft Purview Beyond Data Protection 

Microsoft Purview is growing from strength to strength. It is an umbrella term for a huge suite of tools to cover unified data governance, risk and compliance. There was a digital event a few weeks ago entitled Go Beyond Data Protection with Microsoft Purview. The Microsoft Purview Product Portfolio was announced and has 5 components for a defense-in-depth approach. 



Identify data landscape 

The start is data discovery, knowing where your data is and having a single pain of glass to view and manage the entire data estate. The aim is to improve efficacy for data protection. 

Protect sensitive data 

This line of defense looks at putting protection policies in place utilising classification and labelling, rights management and encryption.  With those high-level insights into how it is being accessed, stored and shared. This should help to prevent data leaks and data breaches. 

Manage risk 

This looks at potential data risks and risky behaviour's to enable security teams to quickly take mitigating action against internal data misuse. 

Prevent data loss 

There is always a balancing act between productivity and making sure data is not compromised. This data requires proper access control, policies that prevent data being improperly saved , stored or printing of sensitive data. This will reduce that risk against unauthorised use of data. 

Govern data lifecycle 

Proactive data governance leads to better data security. Making the business teams the stewards of their data , creates that unified data governance approach.

This comprehensive set of tools enables businesses to plan for a full set of data capabilities that are the foundation stones of an intelligent data platform. To get started with managing your data consider a Microsoft Purview Proof of Concept, a Data Strategy or Data Governance strategy review. 

In conclusion, Microsoft Purview offers businesses a comprehensive solution for managing their data beyond just protection. With Purview, organisations can gain insights into their data, streamline data governance, and enhance collaboration across teams. By adopting Purview, businesses can stay ahead of the competition and make informed decisions based on accurate and trustworthy data. So why settle for basic data protection when you can go beyond with Microsoft Purview?
