Organizations depend on data to drive business strategy. However, to make informed decisions, data users need the ability to find and access the right information. Microsoft 365 Purview automates the process of classifying and discovering data.

Classify Data for Sensitivity or Retention

“Data classification forms the foundation for improving data visibility with Microsoft 365’s data governance suite. Using a combination of built-in and customized sensitivity and retention labels, organizations classify data consistently across on-premises, cloud and hybrid environments.”

Find Data Wherever It Lives

“The Microsoft Purview data catalog provides a powerful way for users to find relevant data, even if they don’t know where the data resides. Users can enter a variety of search parameters in the Purview search bar. These include data type, data classification, keywords, and glossary terms.”

Monitor Data Activities

“In addition to improving data visibility for data consumers, Microsoft Purview provides essential tools for data governance stakeholders. Through the dashboards and reports provided with Purview Data Estate Insights, administrators can view key insights about tagged content and actions that users take with sensitive data.”
