Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection Trial: Microsoft will release the next major update of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update on October 17 and one of the key security features for businesses will be Windows Defender's Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) which further enhances the shield against cyberattacks with better detection.
Today, Microsoft officially announced a preview of Windows Defender ATP in the face of the official release of the Fall Creators Update, giving stakeholders the chance to test it to decide if it could be useful for their business.
Windows Defender ATP's list of improvements is huge and it all starts with an improved console combining security alerts from all Windows security features, such as Windows Defender Antivirus, Windows Defender Firewall, SmartScreen, Device Guard and Exploit Guard.
Schedules are created using event reports, allowing you to easily see any notifications generated by your software.
The test may take up to 90 days without limitations on application features and Microsoft reports that customers wishing to benefit from enhanced protection should start testing to prepare for the final version that will come with Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.
"This focused security investment combines the best features of Windows Defender ATP and all of Windows security applications. "We've incorporated new Windows 10 prevention technologies, we've improved our built-in sensors for better script-based attack detection, we've added new response capabilities, and we have powerful analytics," said Raviv Tamir, Windows Defender ATP Program Manager.
