Today, Microsoft announced that Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) is now Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection. The reason for this is because it's not all about Windows anymore, as Defender ATP is coming to macOS.
The company also announced Threat and Vulnerability Management (TVM), which is meant to let IT pros "discover, prioritize and remediate known vulnerabilities and misconfigurations exploited by threat actors." They'll be able to see the risk-level of various threats and assess how to fix them based on Defender ATP.
Threat and Vulnerability Management promises the following:
- Real-time detection insights correlated with endpoint vulnerabilities
- Machine vulnerability context during incident investigations
- Built-in remediation processes through integration with Microsoft Intune and Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager
Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection for Mac is available now in a limited preview, and you can sign up for the public preview when it's available. Throughout the preview, Microsoft will be adding Endpoint Detection and Response, along with TVM capabilities. The public preview for Threat and Vulnerability Management is expected to be available within the next month.
