Microsoft Edge

Microsoft Edge for Business has just rolled out new data leak control capabilities, which could help keep sensitive information safe.

What are data leak control capabilities?

In plain English, they help prevent sensitive information from getting out to the wrong people. Think of it as having an extra lock on your digital doors, ensuring only the right people can access your important data.

Every business handles sensitive information, whether financial records, client details, or proprietary data. If this information leaks, it could mean Financial loss, legal headaches, and a hit to your reputation.

This new feature in Microsoft Edge helps keep your data secure by ensuring only authorized people can access it and stopping accidental sharing.

Depending on your industry, you may have strict rules about data protection. These new controls can help you stay on the right side of regulations.

And let’s not forget your customers. They’re more aware than ever about data privacy. Using a browser with strong data leak controls shows you’re serious about protecting their information, which can boost their trust in your business.

Microsoft Edge for Business has added this new feature into an easy-to-use package. You can set policies on how data can be shared – like stopping certain types of data from being copied or emailed to unauthorized recipients. This way, you’re less likely to have accidental leaks.

It uses artificial intelligence to spot potential threats and unusual data movements. Edge can alert you to a potential leak before it happens, allowing you to act proactively.

Suppose you’re already using other Microsoft products like 365 or Microsoft Teams. In that case, the good news is that Edge for Business integrates smoothly with them, letting you apply consistent data protection across all your tools.
