Windows Defender ATP Updates
Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) is a pivotal part of Microsoft's security strategy, bringing threat and exploit protection along with endpoint detection and response directly into the operating system. Windows Defender ATP will get an array of upgrades in the Windows 10 October 2018 Update, Microsoft said. They include Threat Analytics (for interactive reports on emerging attack threats); the ability to write custom queries with advanced threat hunting; a solution for automatically resolving a security alert when a threat has been remediated; and the introduction of Microsoft Threat Protection, which serves as an end-to-end offering (across Windows, Office and Azure) for detecting threats and remediating their impacts.
Additionally, Microsoft says new support is being delivered for managed security service providers that offer managed detection and response atop Windows Defender ATP.
