Hello team,

for eDLP global settings option: Advanced classification scanning and protection

This feature is eDLP that uses Defender for Endpoint to scan the data inside the endpoint.


is this feature scanning the data at REST to detect sensible data inside the local drive, the objective is to detect if the end-users are storing sensitive data inside the local drive.

this information is required because we plan to request our users to store sensible data in Sharepoint but we need a tool to detect that the customers are following the policy.
