Microsoft Information Protection
Information Protection is a cloud service that understands and classifies data, keeps it protected and prevents data loss across Microsoft 365 Apps and services (like SharePoint online), SaaS (web) applications and some on-premises solutions as well.
Microsoft Azure Purview
Azure Purview builds on the same sensitivity labels and data classification taxonomy in Microsoft Information Protection. By extending Microsoft Information Protection’s sensitivity labels with Azure Purview, organizations can now automatically discover, classify, and get insight into sensitivity across a broader range of data sources such as SQL Server, SAP, Teradata, Azure Data Services, and Amazon AWS S3, helping to minimize compliance risk.
Since your data is everywhere, you want to apply governance, classification and security on all data, in every place you can image, even in Microsoft competitor solutions like AWS. The Azure Purview services is a multi-everything solution for just doing that, boosts your compliance and is in general preview now. When you want to try it yourself, you can download the App from the Azure website (most services are for free during preview phase).
