Netskope with Microsoft Information Protect Use Cases

The following section covers some common use cases for Netskope with MIP.

Inspecting sensitive content and applying the MIP label

Netskope's DLP can identify sensitive content in files stored on cloud apps. You can set up a policy to use MIP to label documents as sensitive.

  1. In the MIP tenant, go to Classification and create a new label you want to apply to files with sensitive content.

  2. Publish the label to all users and groups. Select All under Users and groups.

  3. In the Netskope tenant, create a new API-enabled Protection policy. Under Actions choose IRM Protect > MIP and then the label you want to use.

    For detailed instructions on creating a policy, see Configure an API Data Protection Policy for MIP.

Revising the MIP label based on the content

Files that are already labeled by MIP can be scanned by the API-enabled Protection policy for sensitive content. If the policy detects sensitive content in the files, then the policy replaces the file label with the appropriate label defined by MIP for the content type.
