Microsoft today announced new administrative controls for Bing Chat Enterprise. This generative AI service offers commercial data protection for employees. The new controls allow admins to roll out Bing Chat Enterprise to a subset of users before deploying across the organization.

New Administrative Controls

These controls provide Microsoft 365 admins with the ability to manage the deployment of Bing Chat Enterprise for individual users. Now, admins can roll out Bing Chat Enterprise to a specific group of users before deploying it across the entire organization.

User Experience

If you sign in with your work or school Microsoft Enterprise ID, you can access Bing Chat Enterprise from entry points like and the Microsoft Edge sidebar. If Bing Chat Enterprise is disabled, you will be redirected to the consumer Bing Chat experience.

Data Processing and Privacy in Bing Chat Enterprise

Microsoft has unveiled that Bing Chat Enterprise cannot access any organizational resources or content within Microsoft 365, including documents, emails, meetings, or Microsoft Teams messages. Microsoft controls Bing Chat Enterprise as the data controller.

When you use the Bing Chat Enterprise service outside your Microsoft 365 tenant, your user prompts may be processed in global data centers. However, this data is encrypted while in transit. Microsoft doesn’t store it beyond a short caching period for runtime purposes.

The Bing Chat Service Plan for A3 and A5 is currently unavailable at the time of the announcement, with plans to add it later.
