Office IRM Integration – Rights Management enables Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013 and Microsoft Office 2010 users to be able to IRM protect content using predefined policies provided by the service within a company. Office applications that include these capabilities are Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and InfoPath.
For more information on how to get started configuring Office client computers to use Rights Management, see Office Integration with Rights Management.
Exchange Online IRM Integration – Rights Management enables users of Microsoft Exchange Online to IRM protect and consume email messages in Outlook Web Access (OWA) and consume IRM protected messages via Exchange Active Sync for devices that have implemented IRM support including Windows Phone 7. Exchange administrators can enable additional features, such as Outlook protection rules as well as transport rules for protection and decryption, to ensure content is not inadvertently leaked outside of the organizational boundary and edit the content of the message to include disclaimers.
SharePoint Online IRM Integration – Rights Management enables Microsoft SharePoint Online administrators to create IRM protected document libraries so that when a user checks-out a document from the IRM document library, IRM is applied to the document and the user has the rights to that document as they were specified for the document library by the administrator.
