Azure Information Protection

What is it?

Azure Information Protection, or AIP, is a file encryption software provided by Microsoft that allows users to restrict access to files.

Where can I get it?

For those of you that want to jump the gun and get started right away, you can download the Azure Information Protection Software here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=53018. 

How does it work?

AIP restricts access to files based on your CSUSM user account, so you never have to enter a password to unlock a file.  In addition, you can choose other CSUSM users that you would like to have access to the file by entering in their email address.
