Earlier in March, Microsoft announced the new Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection, which will help enterprises detect, investigate, and respond to advanced attacks on networks.
Access to the public preview to IT professionals and enterprise customers is now available upon acceptance. As part of the program, you’ll get a chance to explore Windows Defender ATP service, simulate an attack on your endpoints and see how alerts and events are captured by the service. You can find more information and request enrollment on the Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection product website.
Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection builds on existing security defenses Windows 10 offers today, and provides an additional post-breach layer of protection to the Windows 10 security stack. With a combination of client technology built into Windows 10 and a robust cloud service, it will help detect threats that have made it past other defenses, provide enterprises with information to investigate the breach across endpoints, and offer response recommendations.
The service is already live with early adopters that span across geographies and industries, and our entire Microsoft network, making it one of the largest running advanced threat protection services – already protecting more than 500,000 endpoints.
