Other applications that support the Rights Management APIs

Applies to: Azure Information Protection, Office 365

Use the following information to help you understand how the Azure Rights Management service from Azure Information Protection can support other applications to protect your organization’s data.

By using the Azure Information Protection SDKs, your internal developers can write line-of-business applications to natively support the Azure Rights Management service. How information protection is integrated with these applications depends on how they are written. For example, the integration might be automatically applied with minimal user interaction required, or for a more customized experience, users might be prompted to configure settings to apply information protection to files. For more information, see the Developer's Guide.

Similarly, many software vendors provide applications to provide information protection solutions, also known as enterprise rights management (ERM) products. A popular example is a PDF reader that supports the Azure Rights Management service for specific platforms. You can use the table in Applications that support Azure Rights Management data protection to identify applications that support Rights Management (RMS-enlightened applications), and then use a web search to purchase or download the application.
