DLP needs to be able to read OCR
At the present time DLP is not able to read OCR documents, namely documents scanned to PDF. This is a GIANT, GAPING hole in terms of security. I have clients who have 100's of thousands of documents that contain sensitive information saved in OneDrive but no DLP policies can be applied to these documents, since DLP is not OCR aware. Please correct ASAP! Thanks!

I hope Microsoft will take a look on this, because it is really very important to have reliable DLP
DLP should be able to analyze images with text as well like Google DLP.

This is a requirement. Currently sensitive information can leave the company undetected by DLP, MCAS or Information Protection. Please work on this to improve this service.
gsuite DLP includes OCR. Just saying. Came up in formal product selection

This is major, yes!
DLP without OCR is like fishing with your hands when you are blind. You might stumble across one every now or then, but don't count on catching many.
The lack of OCR for O365 DLP is forcing us to have to consider other 3rd party solutions for O365 DLP protection. I’ve heard OCR is already available in e-discovery, so seems it would Ideal to Transfer this OCR functionality to O365 DLP.
