Increase security with Just-In-Time in Purview

In today’s digital age, data is one of an organization’s most valuable assets. Protecting this data from leaks and unauthorized access is crucial. Microsoft Purview Endpoint Data Loss Prevention (DLP) provides advanced capabilities to protect sensitive information, with Just-In-Time (JIT) protection playing a key role.

What is Endpoint DLP?

Endpoint DLP is a component of Microsoft Purview that enables organizations to implement policies that monitor and regulate the movement and use of sensitive data on endpoints. The goal is to prevent sensitive information from being inadvertently or maliciously leaked or exposed.

The Role of JIT Protection

Just-In-Time protection is an advanced feature within Endpoint DLP that provides real-time protection. It works by monitoring user activity and, if necessary, intervening immediately to protect sensitive data. This can range from alerting users about their actions to blocking potentially harmful data transfers.

How Does JIT Protection Work?

  1. User Activity Monitoring: Just-In-Time security starts with continuous monitoring of user activity on endpoints, such as copying, moving or sharing files.
  2. Policy application: When a user action violates DLP policy, JIT protection is triggered. This could be blocking the action, asking for additional authentication, or informing the user of the policy.
  3. Real-Time Response: The unique thing about JIT protection is the speed of response. The system can respond immediately, significantly reducing the risk of data breaches.

Benefits of JIT Protection in Endpoint DLP.

  • Enhanced Data Security: Provides an additional layer of security through real-time protection against data breaches.
  • Flexibility: Allows organizations to adapt and refine their DLP policies based on their specific security needs.
  • User Awareness: Helps increase awareness about data security policies among employees by providing direct feedback on their actions.


With the increasing amount of sensitive information being managed digitally, the need for robust data protection strategies is undeniable. Microsoft Purview Endpoint DLP with Just-In-Time Security provides a powerful solution to help organizations effectively secure their data, while remaining flexible and responsive in the face of changing threats. By implementing JIT protection, companies can not only secure their data, but also foster a culture of security awareness and accountability.
