The People’s History of ConfigMgr – Happy 25th Birthday ConfigMgr

Pirate,

I’m super happy to be part of the “The People’s History of ConfigMgr”. It’s  the second half of the “ConfigMgr @ 25” documentary series, and this story is told solely by the ConfigMgr community.

Pirate,

with the acquisition of Secure Islands in November 2015, Microsoft announced (June, 2016) a new product called Azure Information Protection. This new service builds on the new adoption for document and file labeling and the already existing server Azure Rights Management (Azure RMS).
