Microsoft had a bunch of developer- and enterprise-focused announcements at its Ignite 2021 conference. Among those were also some details related to enhancements coming to Microsoft Teams.
First of all, Microsoft Records Management now offers better integration with Teams. This enables configuration of adaptive policy scopes for groups within Teams, as well as separate retention policies for attached files stored on SharePoint of OneDrive with messages. Both of these capabilities are in preview right now. However, retention policies for private channels in the collaboration app are generally available as of now.
Teams also features enhanced integration with Communication Compliance. It ties better into shared channels and also enables users to analyze contents of modern attachments. Day Zero insights are being offered and training videos offering guidance regarding how to configure Communication Compliance are being made available. Communication Compliance directly integrates with Data Loss Prevention (DLP) too. Finally, Teams can now detect harassing or threatening language in more languages including Arabic, Dutch, Korean, and Chinese (Traditional).
In a similar vein, Endpoint DLP and Insider Risk Management now support macOS in preview. Meanwhile, Information Protection now leverages from machine learning-based trainable classifiers to automatically label files and support for named entities in conditions. This label also carries across certain file types. Finally, Microsoft also has additional APIs and connectors for its compliance solutions, even across non-Microsoft sources.
