For the past several years, the UNT System has been piloting Voice over IP telephony based on Microsoft Skype for Business. In the fall of 2017, ITSS acquired licenses for Microsoft’s A5 suite of applications for Office 365. These licenses allowed us to take a leading role amongst higher education institutions by moving our telephony services off traditional copper lines to the cloud.
Recently, ITSS implemented the DLP service in order to protect Personally Identifying Information (PII). This service was implemented to make UNT System complaint with federal and state laws regarding the distribution and storage of PII, like bank account numbers, social security numbers, and more. In the future, we hope to extend the DLP service to more departments in the UNT System. So, we would love to know more about what your experience with the DLP service has been like so far!
