“If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.”
– Napoleon Hill
Over the last several months we’ve been hard at work creating a project for a large customer in the military/defense industry regarding getting Safeguard Send to work with Microsoft Information Protection (MSIP) and really, Azure Information Protection (AIP) which can be viewed as a subset of MSIP.
This client is in the Government Computing Cloud (GCC) and so needs to use Microsoft AIP which isn’t as advanced as MSIP. Specifically, they wanted Safeguard Send to prompt them whenever a user was going to send an email without a classification (think “classified”, “secret”, “top-secret”, etc) but the attachment did have one of these classifications. MSIP can do this but AIP in the GCC cannot.
We’re happy to report that we were able to get Safeguard Send to read MSIP/AIP classification labels in both emails and attachments, and be able to write AIP classification labels in emails. Now the customer’s users can get a typical Safeguard Send warning whenever sending an email outside the company and that email does not have an MSIP/AIP classification and the attachments do, then allow the user to seamlessly upgrade the email classification.
If you understand the acronyms and have an idea of what MSIP/AIP are for and find that Microsoft isn’t meeting your needs then please get in touch with us.
Otherwise, go about your day and we’ll try to bring you something more relevant next time. 🙂
