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?

Azure Information Protection is available through Software Center, and installed on all coomputer systems on campus. 

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.
