Today at Microsoft Inspire in Las Vegas we announced that NC Protect now utilizes Microsoft Information Protection (MIP) labels to enhance conditional access and data security controls in Microsoft platforms to guard against insider threats, sensitive data misuse, unauthorized sharing and exfiltration.

The NC Protect integration with MIP deepens Nucleus Cyber’s relationship with Microsoft and our joint commitment to secure collaboration. NC Protect now augments MIP labelling’s base features to give customers the best of both worlds – all the collaboration features that Microsoft provides but with the granular security, classification and protection that business policies demand.

Tom Hill, Managing Director at Slater Hill, a Microsoft Gold Partner for Portals and Collaboration, said, “We’re very excited about this new enhancement from Nucleus Cyber. We often have customers that need more granular security than what is available out of the box. The NC Protect integration gives customers the ability to leverage their MIP investment with a complementary solution that extends the security capabilities to meet more complex requirements.” 

Key advantages for joint customers

When MIP labels are utilized with NC Protect, the combined data protection capabilities enable more accurate detection and protection of critical data. The integration enables three core capabilities:

  • NC Protect integration deepens relationship with Microsoft utilizing MIP labels to enhance conditional access and data protection controlsData-centric security – With NC Protect and MIP, access is based on file and user attributes (including MIP labels) to enable access rights, and RMS protection is dynamically applied at the time of file access.
  • Augmented Views – NC Protect’s Dynamic Access rules only show a user the files that the policy allows them to open; all other files are hidden regardless of SharePoint permissions.
  • Integrity of Office 365 functionality maintained – NC Protect security controls can be dynamically applied when users access files, maintaining Office 365 functionality such as Search, eDiscovery, Delve, Office Online Apps and other collaboration features.
