Feature details

We are introducing new data protection capabilities in Power BI that leverage Microsoft’s leading security solutions for information protection and threat protection to provide you with greater control and visibility over sensitive data in Power BI.

We have integrated Power BI with Microsoft Purview Information Protection and Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps to empower BI professionals and administrators to:

  • Classify and label Power BI dashboards, reports, datasets, and dataflows in the Power BI service.
  • Set label-specific permissions on exported files (Excel, PowerPoint, and PDF) from Power BI.
  • Provide oversight to administrators on sensitive data being used in Power BI.
  • Leverage Microsoft Cloud App Security to monitor user access and activity, protect data based on real-time risk analysis, and set label-specific controls.
