With the new name Microsoft Purview, the products for compliance and governance are given a new name. Microsoft is thus making it clear how closely these topics are interlinked and at the same time underscoring the clarity and urgency of addressing them: The future of compliance and data governance is here: Introducing Microsoft Purview – Microsoft Security Blog.
Microsoft Purview is the solution set to help cloud customers manage and protect their cloud-based data. For this purpose, Microsoft has combined the functions of Azure Purview and the familiar compliance tools from Microsoft 365.
