Three tiers of protection for data, identities and devices
Microsoft provides many protection capabilities across our cloud services. We know it can be challenging to choose the right set of capabilities for your organization. These resources recommend the most common capabilities to help you secure your data, identities, and devices.
Capabilities are recommended in three tiers — baseline protection, sensitive protection, and protection for environments with highly regulated or classified data.
It’s important to use consistent levels of protection across your data, identities, and devices. For example, if you protect sensitive data at a higher level, be sure to protect the identities and devices that access this data at a comparable level. These resources show you which capabilities are comparable.
