Starting your organization’s AI transformation may seem challenging when users want to use AI tools now and IT teams want to ensure data security. AI is spreading surprisingly quickly, with 75% of knowledge workers reporting that they use AI at work.¹ But if your users are leveraging unsanctioned AI tools, it puts sensitive business data at risk—once it goes into an AI model, there is no getting it back. And if you block AI services to prioritize security, you risk falling behind other organizations who are moving full speed ahead with AI.   


You can give users the AI tools they want today while also protecting sensitive data with Microsoft Copilot with commercial data protection. Best of all, it’s available at no additional cost if you’re on an eligible Microsoft 365 or Office 365 subscription, and it's easy to roll out using the Copilot adoption kit 


We know all the AI options out there might be confusing, so we have a new Copilot explainer video available as part of Microsoft Build to help provide greater clarity about how users can be more creative at work and save time using AI. You can watch the new Copilot explainer video at


Bring AI-powered web chat to your users today 

Rolling out Copilot is easy. When an eligible user signs in with their work or school account (Entra ID), Copilot automatically adds commercial data protection. This means prompts and responses are not saved, no one at Microsoft has eyes-on access, and data is not used to train the underlying large language model. You can learn more about managing Copilot on Microsoft Learn.  
Give your employees a productivity and creativity boost with Copilot 

People have a lot on their plate at work, and Copilot with commercial data protection uses advanced AI models like GPT-4 and DALL-E 3 to provide powerful AI tools to help tackle tasks of all sizes. 


With AI in their toolkit, users are already recognizing gains at work with 90% reporting that AI helps them to save time,² and 84% reporting that it helps them be more creative.³ They’re using it to do things like: 


  • Answer complex questions sourced with the latest information available on the web so they can spend less time searching and asking peers and more time getting things done.
  • Summarize content like an article or PDF into a set of bullet points to save time reading long documents.  
  • Create custom images that can be used for presentations, blogs, and more to bring the creative vision in their head to life.

Pair Copilot with Microsoft Edge for added security capabilities 

Users get additional security features when they access Copilot through the Microsoft Edge sidebar, including capabilities like native support for Data Loss Prevention (DLP) policies that add protections to prevent sensitive content from being summarized, copied, pasted, or captured by screenshot.  


Plus, Edge offers controls for managing Copilot and third-party AI services with Edge management service and new user features such as real-time translation of videos using AI and AI-powered Workspaces. Learn more about Microsoft Edge and new announcements at Build
