Rights Management is now an implicit service within Office 365, which of course begs the question, “What’s Rights Management?” Here’s a brief explanation:
Have you ever had your email or documents shared or given to other people than you intended, or seen your company’s information shared with people outside the company by accident? Maybe you have information that you want to share confidentially with only a few trusted colleagues for purposes of collecting feedback, but you’re concerned that the information may get leaked inadvertently before you are ready?
Fortunately, with Rights Management in Office 365, you can secure your information and apply an intelligent policy so that only specified internal and/or external people can "act" on your information. For example, you can allow recipients to edit and print, while restricting them from forwarding to others. This policy is attached to the information, so it applies no matter where your information lives-in the datacenter, in transit, or on your laptop, mobile device, or a USB key. Rights Management lets you assign policies to email, SharePoint Online libraries, individual Office documents, and other file types.
Rights Management for Office 365 isn’t just data security or encryption, although you get both with access control and 128-bit AES encryption. Rights Management is about putting you, the creator of content, in control. Now, with you firmly in the driver’s seat, you can confidently share information with anyone.
Here’s a quick demo of these functions:
