Comparing Microsoft Information Protection unified labeling and Share Gate Apricot’s ‘Group sensitivity’ feature

Wondering how to stay on top of Microsoft Teams security? To answer that, we compare sensitivity labels in the Microsoft 365 compliance center with ShareGate Apricot’s group sensitivity labels.

Keeping organizational data secure is a top priority for IT admins today. And, according to Microsoft MVP Joanne Klein, one of the best ways to approach data security at scale is from the perspective of container governance: security and compliance policies applied at the level of Microsoft teams and Microsoft 365 groups.

Our engineers did a ton of research into container-level data protection while developing our latest ShareGate Apricot release. And a large part of that process included looking at unified sensitivity labeling in the Microsoft 365 compliance center to understand the capabilities and limitations of that feature.

To help you assess whether Microsoft Information Protection (MIP) sensitivity labels are the right fit for your organization, we decided to share what we learned and highlight some key differences between MIP sensitivity labels and ShareGate Apricot’s “Group sensitivity” feature.

Guide: How to use / apply sensitivity labels with Microsoft Teams

Wondering how to get started using sensitivity labels with Microsoft Teams? If you’re ready to start protecting your organization’s Teams content with unified labeling in Microsoft 365, follow these steps!

When it comes to keeping sensitive data secure in Microsoft Teams, Microsoft 365 now has a built-in feature that lets you classify and protect your data at the container-level: sensitivity labels through the Microsoft Information Protection (MIP) solution.

With sensitivity labels in Microsoft 365, you can classify data across your organization and enforce protection settings based on that classification. And when viewed by users, a sensitivity label appears as a tag in apps that they use—such as Microsoft Teams—and can be easily integrated into their existing workflows.

Sensitivity labels applied at the container level enable Microsoft Teams admins to protect and regulate access to sensitive organizational content created during collaboration within teams. And since they can be applied at the level of an individual team, there’s no need to apply unnecessary blanket restrictions that could negatively impact user adoption and result in people turning to other, un-approved tools.

If you’re ready to start protecting your organization’s Teams data with sensitivity labels in Microsoft 365, then follow the steps in this handy how-to guide to get started!

Follow these steps to get started using sensitivity labels with Microsoft Teams:

Enable sensitivity labels for containers and synchronize labels.
To apply published labels to groups (and, by extension, teams), you first need to enable the feature in Azure AD. You will also need to synchronize your sensitivity labels to Azure AD.

Configure “Groups & sites” settings in the sensitivity labeling wizard.
Once you’ve enabled sensitivity labels for containers, you can now configure protection settings for groups and sites in the Microsoft 365 compliance center.

Publish sensitivity labels that are configured for sites and groups.
To make a new sensitivity label visible for users in teams, groups, and sites, publish it by creating a label policy in the Microsoft 365 compliance center.

Leveraging Logistics 4.0 to Boost Last-Mile Delivery

The increasing volume of e-commerce channel transactions and changing customer expectations are putting immense pressure on transportation planning in order to improve last-mile delivery of industrial and consumer goods, such as white goods and installation services. However, traditional big box planning and execution technologies with focus on inbound operations lack the functionality to support the last leg of delivery.

In a typical final mile delivery, operational planning starts at the hub with customer orders being initiated via an electronics channel and consolidated further based on the customer’s requested delivery date. To minimize the cost of transportation, orders are consolidated by pooling shipments into a single or multiple line-hauls, from point of production to the final distribution center in a supply chain. In addition, shipments are usually cross-docked from larger full truck loads to smaller delivery trucks such as straight trucks in various configurations. Once cross-docked into smaller trucks, shipments are delivered or installed the same day to the final customer address (see Figure 1). Customers are constantly pressing business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) logistics companies to make the final mile delivery more responsive and visible through enhanced shipment tracking using industrial internet of things (IIoT) and mobile order management.
