BETA: Microsoft Endpoint Data Loss Prevention (Public Preview)

imageEnsuring that sensitive data is protected from risky or inappropriate sharing, transfer, or use has always been a top priority for organizations. The new reality of significant numbers of employees working from home or other remote locations indefinitely has created renewed emphasis on providing strong and coordinated protection on the endpoints they use every day. To help customers accelerate their deployment of a comprehensive information protection strategy across all their environments, we are announcing the public preview of Microsoft Endpoint Data Loss Prevention (DLP).

At Microsoft, we have long invested in developing cutting-edge information protection solutions for our customers. Microsoft Information Protection (MIP) is a built-in, intelligent, unified, and extensible solution that understands and classifies your data, keeps it protected, and prevents data loss across Microsoft 365 apps (e.g., Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook), services (e.g., Microsoft Teams, SharePoint, Exchange), third-party SaaS applications, and more – on premises or in the cloud. Endpoint DLP now extends MIP classification and protection to devices.

Microsoft 365 customers only need to create DLP policies once in the Microsoft 365 compliance center. They can then apply the policies to Exchange, Teams, SharePoint, OneDrive for Business, and now – to endpoints as well. All that is required is for the endpoint to be onboarded in your environment using your established device management onboarding process.

Endpoint DLP identifies and protects information on endpoints. Endpoint DLP does not restrict or limit the use of applications, web browsers, or other services when sensitive data is not present. It delivers three core capabilities: Native protection, seamless deployment, and integrated insights.

Endpoint DLP is native to Windows 10 and the new Microsoft Edge browser. There is no need to install or manage additional DLP software on Windows 10 machines anymore. Providing DLP experiences natively on the endpoint has many benefits.


Endpoint DLP starts rolling out to customers’ tenants in Microsoft 365 E5/A5, Microsoft 365 E5/A5 Compliance, and Microsoft 365 E5/A5 Information Protection and Governance.
