Microsoft 365 & SharePoint Encryption & BYOK

Automate data encryption and control key management for Microsoft 365 & SharePoint files and Exchange emails

Why use automated encryption to improve data security in Microsoft 365 and SharePoint?

Encryption of sensitive data is a vital aspect of data security and compliance, especially with the surge in the remote workforce that still require access to this critical business information outside of the normal security borders. There are several points to keep in mind when considering encryption of your M365 and SharePoint documents, files and emails; especially highly sensitive or regulated data such as personally identifiable information (PII), protected health information (PHI), intellectual property (IP), M&A and Board documents:

  • Encryption ensures that your data stays protected in case of a malicious attack, leak or the accidental sharing of a document.
  • The ability to identify, control and encrypt sensitive data is mandatory to meet certain compliance regulations (e.g., GDPR/PII and HIPAA/PHI).
  • You should have dynamic fail-safe processes in place to encrypt highly sensitive, regulated or classified files shared via email.
  • Dynamic data classification can be leveraged to set proper access permissions and encrypt sensitive or regulated data using tools like NC Protect.

Get Dynamic Data Encryption in M365 & SharePoint

Ensure that your organization’s business-critical data is protected according to your business regulations and applicable regulatory policies. NC Protect adds granular access and protection controls to business-critical content in Microsoft 365 applications by utilizing attribute-based access control (ABAC) and data protection policies.

NC Protect utilizes dynamic classification and access control as its primary defense. When paired with Microsoft Information Protection or NC Encrypt, it can automatically encrypt sensitive documents to limit the audience to only authorized users with proper credentials. In addition, the contents of an email and attachments sent through Exchange can also be encrypted automatically with NC Protect.

It also offers options for key management and bring your own key (BYOK) to seamlessly manage security and compliance.


  • Enables compliance with GDPR, CCPA, HIPAA and other privacy and data sovereignty regulations.
  • Encrypts documents automatically based on the policy, context and file sensitivity.
  • Automated policy-based encryption alleviates dependency on user behavior.
  • Adds compliance without user impact.
  • The optional NC Encrypt module provides key management and optionally connects to third party key management platforms to support BYOK.
  • Quick and easy to deploy and configure.
  • Agentless design means there is no endpoint software to be installed and maintained, or endpoint policies to update.
