Pricing Advice

What users are saying about Microsoft Data Loss Prevention pricing:
  • "It is a part of our Microsoft licensing. We pay for a yearly renewal. Its price is reasonable for the size of the organization we are. It is fairly competitive, and you get what you pay for. We have an E5 license, and a part of understanding the E5 license is to see what all you get with it. If you really look at it from that standpoint, you get a lot of value. You have Defender and all its security features in there as well. Their licensing is fairly flexible. They have different programs. We've seen ones where you could pay for up to three to five years in advance. There is also a monthly pay-as-you-go type of deal, but we're doing a yearly renewal and fixing the budget."

Definitely the best in class with great stability, competitive price, support for different repositories, and very useful auto-labeling feature

What is our primary use case?

We basically use it to track personal identifiable information. We are also using it to label any confidential, company trade secret, and internal data. We have an internal use policy and a confidential use policy to encrypt the documents.

Pros and Cons

  • "The auto-labeling feature is definitely the most valuable feature. It goes in and labels the documents for you in different repositories. It covers the Outlook and Exchange repositories along with SharePoint and OneDrive. It is really helpful in those areas."
  • "There is a lot of ambiguity when you are setting up labels, such as sensitive information labels. It is a little daunting at first if you don't have prior knowledge, and there is a little bit of a learning curve for setting up the labels. Some of the setup wizards could be more helpful from an AI perspective. They can streamline the setup through more AI technologies so that you don't have to jump through so many hoops and different menus and dropdowns. It would be useful to have a setup wizard that is more hands-off and engaging for setting up the information type labels. If you tell them this is what we're trying to protect, it should basically start to lead you down that path of best practices. Such a feature would be great."

What other advice do I have?

I would advise others to definitely go to the documentation first and plan ahead. It is definitely something you plan, and it definitely requires a kind of a crawl-walk-run approach, so you definitely want to plan for it. I would also suggest taking advantage of the testing and reporting features that are available to be able to do a pilot and test it before you actually deploy it. I would rate Microsoft Endpoint DLP a nine out of ten. There is a little area for improvement, but it is definitely the best in class.
