Why is Microsoft Azure Rights Management Service a Necessity?

Around all the organizations need to define policies about their employees, what are they permitted to do, or what they are not permitted. That might be surprising for the employees that everyone in the organization has different rights on the same document, some of them may edit the content and on the other hand, some of them have only read-only permission. All these permissions are applied by the admin, who has the authority to decide/apply the policy on every department based on the company requirement. 

To cater all this Microsoft has created a solution which is Azure Rights Management. Azure Rights Management is a technology which is behind the Azure Information Protection.

High Level Working of Microsoft Azure RMS

Microsoft Azure RMS is basically cloud based protection service which uses:

  • Encryption
  • Identity
  • Authorization
  • Decryption

When someone protects data using azure RMS it basically encrypts the content and assign an access policy to the data. Other user only accesses the data if they are fulfilling the requirements of the policy assigned to the document and the Azure RMS will decrypt it. By using this technique organizations are securing their corporate data. Corporate data will remain secure no matter whose hands its in.

Do you know? 43% of breaches take place at small business

Why Azure RMS is necessity now

According to recent studies, about 87% of all senior managers upload sensitive information to personal Emails and Cloud applications regularly. While this figure is not surprising; the arm tingling fact is that close to a whopping 58% of these managers have admitted to having sent sensitive information to the wrong person by accident at one point or another. Ensuring that confidential information is safe, is a growing challenge with the ever-increasing Cloud environment, services and file-sharing Platforms.

While adequate processes are in place for ensuring the integrity of information within an organizational setting; there are unfortunately severe Data Security issues when information must leave the organization. But the Solution is here, Microsoft Azure Right Management (Azure RMS) is the answer to all Data Security problems.

Azure RMS is the ultimate information Protection Solution that is in integration with the MS Office. Why? In order to be easily able to resolve Security problems in the working environment. It helps secure sensitive Data, files, and all other information; during their transition, when they are being accessing on different devices like Android, iOS, and Windows. The best part is that Azure RMS is not particular about where the access to Data is from; its Security is a surety whether it is in use at the office, on the road, in the field or anywhere for that matter.
