The Office cloud policy service allows Microsoft 365 administrators to configure policies  for Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise and assign these policies using Office 365 groups or Azure Active Directory security groups.  Once configured, these policies are automatically enforced as users sign in and use Microsoft 365 apps. 


The initial release will support policies for Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise on Windows and future updates will bring support for additional applications and platforms.
