A simpler, more integrated approach to data governance | Microsoft Security Blog

It’s no secret that the volume of data created by organizations and people multiplies daily. And, in the digital—and hybrid work—world we live in, that data is spread across more tools, platforms, devices, and clouds than ever before, creating regulatory challenges and security risks.

Organizations must understand what data they have and where it lives, how it is used, and critically, how it’s all governed. How an organization stores its data and how long it is kept is not just a regulatory compliance issue, but also a security issue.

Today, I’m excited to share the general availability of Microsoft Azure Purview, giving organizations that holistic understanding of their data that is so critically important. Azure Purview addresses the need for full visibility across all the places where your data lives, making it easier to manage, glean insights, and govern.
