Windows Information Protection

Welcome to Guarded! By accessing and using our services, you agree to comply with the following terms and conditions related to Windows Information Protection (WIP). Please read this document carefully. If you have any questions, feel free to contact our legal department.

Acceptance of WIP Terms
By using WIP, you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and accepted these terms. If you do not agree with any part of these terms, please refrain from using WIP.

User Responsibilities
Authorized Use: You may only use WIP for authorized business purposes within Guarded. Unauthorized use is strictly prohibited.
Data Protection: You are responsible for safeguarding enterprise data while using WIP. Ensure that sensitive information is appropriately labeled and protected.
Compliance with Policies: Adhere to all WIP policies defined by [Your Company Name]. These policies include data classification, access controls, and encryption requirements.
WIP Features and Limitations
Data Separation: WIP clearly distinguishes between personal and corporate data. It ensures that enterprise data remains confidential even when accessed from personal devices.
App Protection: WIP extends data protection to enterprise apps without disrupting user experience. Enterprise-aware apps collaborate seamlessly with WIP.
No Environment Changes: WIP safeguards enterprise data without requiring modifications to the environment or other applications.
Azure Rights Management Integration: WIP works alongside Azure Rights Management to protect data leaving the device (e.g., email attachments sent from rights management-aware mail clients).
Limitations: While WIP prevents accidental data leaks, it does not address intentional data removal by malicious insiders.
Privacy and Data Handling
Data Encryption at Rest: WIP ensures that enterprise data on local files and removable media remains encrypted.
Enterprise-Aware Apps: Apps like Microsoft Word collaborate with WIP to maintain data protection across local files and removable media.
Termination and Compliance
Termination: Guarded reserves the right to terminate WIP access for violation of these terms.
Compliance Audits: Regular audits will assess compliance with WIP policies. Non-compliance may result in disciplinary action.
WIP is provided “as is,” without warranties of any kind. Guarded is not liable for any damages arising from WIP usage.
