As recently announced at Microsoft Build, Microsoft Purview multi-cloud and extensibility capabilities are expanding to include native classification, labeling, and protection capabilities for Adobe Acrobat to help secure PDF documents. Users will soon be able to apply Microsoft Purview Information Protection labels and policies to their most important documents within the desktop version of Adobe Acrobat. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 93331.
Microsoft Purview Information Protection sensitivity labels are natively integrated into Adobe Acrobat, enabling users to manually label files in Acrobat on the desktop (Windows and macOS).
When this will happen
Preview will be available from the Adobe pre-release portal beginning in late June.
How this will affect your organization
Coming soon to public preview, Microsoft Purview Information Protection integration with Adobe Cloud enables users to add sensitivity labels configured with Information Protection to standard business contracts traditionally shared as PDFs (such as purchase orders, partnership agreements, and service contracts). This enables a highly secure, frictionless experience for applying and editing sensitivity labels on PDFs, and helps ensure that only critical stakeholders can view, manage, and approve those documents.
The admin experience within the Microsoft Purview compliance portal remains unchanged; PDF files are automatically covered within label policies, automatic labeling, and data loss prevention.
What you need to do to prepare
This feature is being released in partnership with Adobe. We are bundling Microsoft Purview Information Protection capabilities with the default Acrobat installer, meaning that users no longer need to install a separate plug-in to access these capabilities in Acrobat.
The preview client will be available for download from the Adobe pre-release portal. For additional details, including how to sign up for preview access, refer to our recent blog post.
