  1. Hi,

    I had watched you session in YouTube. Thanks for the good content delivered. I have few queries. Please me know your suggestion/input on them

    My customer have a huge SharePoint 2010 environment ( 15K Site Collections in 7 different farms) and dedicated common search farm for all farms. But there are many issues in crawling, some time user need to wait for a day to get his change appear in the search result. Hence we had planned to implement Hybrid search for all SharePoint farm contents using “O365 Cloud Search service application”. Currently we are in the phase of setting up the environment. At the same time my custom wants to implement DLP. Like display alert if any document contains credit card number, same way you had shown in the demo.

    My query is that the alert/indicator was displayed in the document library and in the report. I can understand that the content resides in SharePoint Online therefore there will not be any problem of applying the DLP. But can it be done for on-prem crawled content.

    I want display a report which shows the document details which contains credit card details from crawled data.

    Thanks in advance,

    K Senthilrajan

    1. Thanks for the note and feedback. Unfortunately DLP policies cannot be applied to SharePoint 2010 content. However, SharePoint Server 2016 does support DLP – in addition to SharePoint Online.

      1. Thanks for the response.
        Is it possible to use DLP on SharePoint 2013 server?
        Is there any possibilities to apply DLP on onedrive data once it is crawled by search service in SharePoint online?

      2. Thanks for the response.

        Please clarify below queries as well.

        1. Is DLP supported in SharePoint Server 2013?
        2. Is it possible to have DLP on OneDrive data which will be crwaled as part of search?

        Thanks,
        K Senthilrajan

        1. 1. DLP is part of SharePoint Online & SharePoint Server 2016.
          2. DLP applies to OneDrive for Business in SharePoint Online & SharePoint Server 2016.
