New security features are available for Power BI to protect company data in the Microsoft cloud. On the one hand, companies must protect themselves from loss, but they must also classify their information and track access to it. Power BI is a business intelligence service that provides business information from a variety of sources, analyzes it, and prepares the results visually.
To access Power BI through public APIs, Microsoft provides service tags that can be used to separate areas of your own network. Private links can be used to configure connections that only use the Azure infrastructure and not the public internet. From the end of February, Power BI will also be able to securely access other resources through the VNet gateway. Cloud services can always access public and private data resources through Azure virtual network (VNet), but then they can only communicate with their own network with explicit permission.
Assign a security label once to all services
Power BI has been able to use Microsoft’s Information Protection Sensitivity (MIP) tag since last year and it is now available on the desktop client as well. With them, managers can secretly identify their Power BI resources as data sets or reports. These labels are preserved when exported as Excel, PowerPoint, or PDF. On the desktop, users will find a relevant note in the footer of the program, for example, which will definitely draw attention to the secret content. Starting in August 2021, Power BI can also receive security labels from source systems such as SQL, Azure Synapse Analytics, or Excel.
Additionally, Power BI data is now available in Azure Preview. In the subsequent governance service, managers must find, understand and manage company information and its journey that is important to the company or to third parties. Additionally, suspicious activity in Power BI can now be monitored in the MCAS (Microsoft Cloud App Security) portal and the administrator can be alerted.
