Naturally, this fends off uninvited troubles coming your way, before they develop. Honestly, it has fostered managing confidential data easier than ever before by allowing users to tailor DLP efforts in order to meet business specific needs. Policy tips can be added in the rules by editor from the Exchange Administration Center.

These tips “punch the clock” when a user tries to send across sensitive data matching a DLP policy tips.

This feature is only available for IE9 and above, but not for Firefox, Chrome, or Safari.
