If you have collided with M365 licensing, you have no doubt heard the acronym “MPIP." But what is Microsoft Purview Information Protection (now known as Microsoft Purview Information Protection)? How can it help protect an organization's information? Is there a specific MPIP console that you somehow missed?
Well good news, there is no MPIP console! MPIP is a collection of tools comprised mainly of Azure Information Protection (AIP), Purview Data Loss Prevention (DLP), Defender for Cloud Apps (MDCA, formerly MCAS), and Windows Information Protection (WIP). There are several other tools like Azure Purview (preview) and Office Mail Encryption that could arguably be considered MPIP, but we will focus on the 4 pillars outlined above. Be sure to stick around till the end because we are saving the best for last!
