Office 2019 lumbers to the stage once more as Microsoft promises future releases


Re: Classified and commercially sensitive documents?

We do some work in this area, there's some interesting progress in DLP and in particular in integration of DLP into Office in a way that is actually useable for normal humans using teh Secure Islands aquisition Microsoft made, now named Azure Information Protection. This allows us to ensure documents and emails are encrypted at rest and in transit and when we're talking about documents stored in the cloud we have BYOK (bring your own key) and shortly HYOK (Hold Your Own Key) encryption facilities, this is all baked into Azure. I know the cloud gets a regular kicking on here, but in this specific area it's actually lighting up some good functionality which was very difficult to pull off before, especially in sharing content securely B2B.
