In this video, explore the terminology associated with Azure Rights Management and discover the kinds of protection offered by the Rights Management service.
- [Instructor] Rights management is the generic term that applies to both the cloud version of rights management and the on-premises version. If implemented on an Active Directory domain controller, the rights management in use is Active Directory Rights Management. If it's implemented in the cloud, it's Azure Rights Management, and Azure RM is what we're dealing with in this course. With the Azure Rights Management Service activated, you can protect your organization's most sensitive documents, you can secure and encrypt email and other files, and you can track how protected documents are used when you share them with others.
This protection uses technologies like encryption, identity, and authorization policies to help secure files and email. What's more, it works across multiple devices, phones, tablets, PCs, and it works for information within your organization and outside your organization. The protection offered by Azure RMS remains with the data even when it leaves your organization's boundaries. As an example, employees might email a document to a partner company or save a document to their cloud drive and use the data protection offered by Azure RMS.
And while we're on the subject of terminology, there's one other word you'll hear throughout this course: blade. As you can see here, I have opened up a web browser, and I've opened this to the Azure Active Directory admin center. As you click around or you watch me click around, the collections of settings found on a slice of the RMS admin web pages, Microsoft calls these things blades, and therefore so will I. So in this example here, I've got a user blade opened up in Azure Active Directory admin center, and if I click on the Profile or the Properties, it opens up a different blade.
So this would be the Profile blade, this would be the User blade, and I can close these things independently of one another. So that's what I mean by blade. You'll hear that throughout the course.
