Windows Information Protection…notes from the field! #MSIgnite

Windows Information Protection (WIP), previously known as enterprise data protection (EDP), helps organizations to protect corporate data against potential data leakage.

information-protection-needsThe concept is fairly simple and is actually based on defining two lists:

  • A corporate boundary list, which represents both on-premise & cloud network locations where managed apps can access corporate data;
  • A list of managed (trusted) apps, which are allowed to open, modify & store corporate data within the corporate boundary list.

In this blog we will look at some practical examples which you have to consider for a successful implementation of Windows Information Protection including a top 4 of recommended practices.

Blog series: Protect your Company Data using Enterprise Data Protection (EDP)

Recently I had the chance during a technical Friday jam session to play around with Enterprise Data Protection (EDP) with some other geeks .

EDP

In short Enterprise data protection (EDP) helps to protect against potential data loss without interfering end-user experience. EDP also helps to protect enterprise apps & data against accidental data loss on enterprise-owned devices, including personal devices that end-users bring to work without requiring changes to your environment or other apps.

Although EDP is introduced with Windows 10 release, the underlying technologies are common known. EDP is primary relying on Encrypted File System (EFS) and AppLocker. In a serie blog posts I will provid some guidance how EDP works and how to configure protected apps, Configuration Manager and Microsoft Intune.

Note!

Enterprise data protection is currently being tested with a number of enterprise customers, and will become available to Windows Insiders soon.

Stay tuned!

Part 1 – Introduction: Windows 10 Enterprise Data Protection – Under the hood…

UPDATE: Enterprise Data Protection is available again from Windows 10 Version 1511 rs1 builds if you want to test Enterprise Data Protection!

UPDATE: Stay on Windows 10 Version 1511 th2 build 10576 if you want to test Enterprise Data Protection!

In this blog I’ll cover a brand new Windows 10 feature, Enterprise Data Protection (EDP). The Microsoft Intune product team recently announced EDP policies as part of the Intune October service update. With this update you’re able to create and deploy configuration policies for Windows 10 enterprise data protection (EDP) settings, such as the list of apps that should be protected by EDP, enterprise network locations, protection level, and encryption using the new Windows 10 Enterprise data protection template.
