Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is now in public preview, Microsoft has announced. The preview includes a new set of features for businesses, first announced earlier in 2017, that are meant to add improved security and threat protection across the board.
The main thrust of the latest Windows Defender ATP improvements is that ATP will now include "seamless integration across the entire Windows threat protection stack." Says Microsoft:
The improvements mean that administrators will be given greater insight into detections, alerts, and analytics. That includes a new security analytics dashboard view that can help spot configuration issues and machines with misconfigured or out of date security settings. Organizations can also now tap into customized reports, access data via APIs, and more.
