Data Loss Protection
Microsoft raises the bar on security in Office 2016 with tools to prevent data leakage and manage file permissions. Administrators can now enable and set Data Loss Protection policies for Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
From the management point of view, policies can fight data leakage by allowing administrators to restrict what files can be sent to whom, and prevent data from being copied and pasted outside of Office 2016 applications.
IT administrators can place restrictions ranging from ’notification’ of a violation, allowing users to ’override’ rules with a justification, to finally ’block’ dissemination of content. Additionally, Microsoft adds file-level encryption of Outlook, Word, Excel and other content. You can also choose to store data in a Customer Lockbox to control whether Microsoft can access sensitive information.
