Absolute Now Integrated with Microsoft Azure Information Protection

Grazed from Absolute

Absolute, the self-healing endpoint security company, has strengthened its technology partnership with Microsoft by integrating with Microsoft Azure Information Protection (AIP), adding persistent visibility to enhance data protection. The integration combines Absolute's visibility into dark endpoints and ability to identify sensitive data with Microsoft AIP's ability to control and secure the files.

The integration of Absolute with Microsoft AIP allows organizations to seamlessly identify and locate sensitive data, which can reside in a number of popular application and file types including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF. Once seamlessly applied through the Absolute console, the AIP protection remains attached to the files even if they move off the endpoint, allowing only authorized users to access the files. This approach to data protection balances security with flexibility by shifting data protection from being device-centric to user-centric. Customers now have unparalleled visibility into endpoints to better manage unwanted access to these sensitive files, without potentially restrictive policies hampering productivity or security workarounds causing potential data breaches.

The two solutions provide strong complementary data protection that:

Why Good Cloud Hosting is Just the Start of Making Your Blog Top Notch

If you are starting a new blogging venture, you've probably put a lot of thought into the set-up of your website. You know that for your site to be a success, it will need to have near perfect availability, and be able to handle even a dramatic increase in demand. You will probably also know that it is pretty much accepted that the best way to achieve this for most sites is with cloud hosting.

Cloud hosting gives you exceptional reliability, allows your site to scale up or down in terms of the resources it needs, and gives you a pricing model where you pay for what you use, rather than needing to predict how much server space you're going to want ahead of time or paying for more than you actually end up needing.

Cloud hosting is used for other reasons too, for instance the convenience of managing your site using something like a virtual private server.
