How do I enable Microsoft Purview Information Protection (MPIP)?

Microsoft Purview Information Protection (MPIP) requires an appropriate license in M365. Once your MPIP license is active, no other configuration is required in NC Protect. However, you can test MPIP is connected to NC Protect using the steps below.

To verify that MPIP integration is enabled

  1. Navigate to NC Protect's administration portal
  2. Click General and select the Encryption link
  3. Under the MPIP tab, the Setup status should read All configured

If you have only recently activated your MPIP license, then the feature may not yet have enabled in NC Protect. Click the Test/Refresh button under the MPIP tab to refresh the connection. If the test fails then please refer to the Microsoft 365 guidelines for instructions on how to activate MPIP.
