Bing Chat Enterprise
Bing Chat and Bing Chat Enterprise are extensions to Bing Search available at https://bing.com/ chat. Essentially, both solutions offer ChatGPT-like capabilities that are further enhanced by Bing Search.
Bing Chat Enterprise differs from Bing Chat because it covers aspects of data privacy as well, and sign-in is via a Microsoft Entra ID, formerly Azure AD account. This allows the use of Microsoft Entra security features to secure and control the login. The input and generated texts are not recorded, analyzed or used by Bing Chat Enterprise to train the language models. However, Bing Chat Enterprise cannot access company data in Microsoft 365 and use it to create answers. This is only possible with Microsoft Copilot or via Azure OpenAI.
Bing Chat Enterprise is available through https://bing.com/chat and the Microsoft Edge for Business sidebar. A Microsoft 365 E3, E5, Business Standard, Business Premium, or A3 or A5 license is required to use the feature. Further details on this topic are described here: Bing Chat Enterprise - Your AI-powered chat with commercial data protection
Chat Enterprise & Office Online Apps
To use Bing Chat in combination with the M365 Office Online Apps the way via the Edget Sidebar has to be used. Details on configuration and how IT administrators can control the feature across the enterprise are described here: Manage the sidebar in Microsoft Edge.
If the feature is enabled, it looks like this:

With the current previews, the Azure OpenAI services can now also be used for own data. The following example shows the Azure services that are required for this.
The following services are required and must be used in combination with each other:
- Azure OpenAI
- Azure Cognitive Search Index
As of June 2023, Azure OpenAI is still in preview and you need to sign up for the preview to use the features. Azure Cognitive Search is available by default.
Azure Cognitiv Search
First, an instance of Azure Cognitive Search needs to be provisioned. How to do this is described here: Create an Azure Cognitive Search service in the portal.
The next step is to configure where the data that should be indexed is located. There are various options for this, all of them results in an index in the newly created Azure Cognitive Search instance. On the Overview page, you will find the link "Connect your data -> Learn more", which provides a good overview of the options:

Other audits and ISO standards also address this point. For this reason, Microsoft 365 has been offering the option to output anonymous user names in reports instead of the actual user names.
