Announcing Power BI data protection GA and introducing new capabilities

Last fall we introduced industry-leading Power BI data protection capabilities in public preview. Today we’re happy to announce these capabilities are generally available (GA), along with new and exciting capabilities we’re announcing in this space! Power BI helps organizations empower everyone to make every decision based on data. It enables a single unified platform to ask smarter business questions and get to actionable insight faster. But democratizing access to insight is only part of the story. We’ve also worked hard to ensure that Power BI is part of an end-to-end security platform that is easy to use, integrated with productivity solutions, and enables remote work. Power BI’s data protection capabilities help people to securely uncover insight, collaborate, and share appropriately no matter where data goes – even outside the organizational network or on unmanaged devices.
