Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection comes to iOS, macOS, Android and Linux

Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection comes to iOS, macOS, Android and Linux”

Windows Defender ATP is Microsoft's post-breach analysis service that uses machine learning and expert analysis to provide security forensics information for organizations.

Part of the Windows Defender security platform, Advanced Threat Protection is created to give Microsoft's enterprise customers enhanced protection against viruses, malware, and active attacks via a centralised control system - but one which, until now, has only supported client devices running on Microsoft's Windows platform.

Microsoft has teamed up with security vendors Bitdefender, Lookout, and Ziften to enable deployment of the software giant's Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection to macOS, Linux, iOS, and Android devices to detect and mitigate security risks.

Integration will come via Bitdefender's GravityZone Cloud for macOS and Linux, Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security for iOS and Android, and Ziften's Zenith systems and security operations platform for macOS and Linux. For now, Microsoft is teaming up with security companies Bitdefender, Lookout and Ziften, and hoping to add more vendors in the future.

Windows Defender ATP has the ability to track individual device event history "for up to six months", according to Microsoft.

For Microsoft, this is a strategic play as they need their security software to envelope the entire enterprise which includes devices and hardware that they do not manufacture or are the developer the OS. Lookout and Ziften will soon join Microsoft's Public Preview program, and you can get more information about their plans on their respective websites.

BitDefender's integration with Windows Defender ATP is now available in public preview, and you can learn how to register for a trial version on this FAQ. When integrated, users will see analytics and alerts in the Windows Defender ATP console. As attackers continue to move quickly, the security industry must work together to provide integrated experiences and technology.
