Microsoft Purview Data Loss Prevention (DLP) on Windows devices will soon support over 100 file types, detect sensitive content in metadata, PDF form fields, and files within Office files. The update, part of Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 171586, will roll out from late June to late October 2024. No policy changes are needed for existing users.

Microsoft Purview: We are excited to announce upcoming enhancements to Microsoft Purview Data Loss Prevention (DLP). With the forthcoming update, the capability to scan, classify, and protect sensitive content on Windows endpoint devices will be significantly expanded. The number of supported file types will increase from approximately 40 to over 100, aligning endpoint coverage with other platforms like Exchange, SharePoint, and OneDrive. Additionally, this update will introduce several key enhancements, including:
Detection of labels from protected files (pfiles).
Identification of sensitive content within file metadata.
Recognition of sensitive information in PDF form fields.
Detection of sensitive information in files embedded inside office files (for example, a .txt file inside .pptx file)
