Microsoft Defender for Endpoint
Microsoft Defender for Endpoint is a comprehensive endpoint security platform designed to detect, and respond to security threats. The platform is cloud based which means it doesn’t require on-premise server deployment and leverages endpoint security sensors build into the operation system of each device; these sensors are continuously collecting data and reporting back to your personal cloud. The Defender then analyses the code and determines potential threats. If a breach does occur, the platform enables the user to quickly and easily remove the threats before it can cause any damage. Microsoft Defender for Endpoint was formally called Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection or WDATP.
Microsoft Defender for Endpoint provides layered security protection, please see below for the seven main features the platform has to offer, some of which include:
Microsoft Defender for Endpoint integrates with the Security Center Enterprise Protection model and modules. Being a full cloud based architecture ensures a robust and scalable endpoint security solution with deep insight with minimal endpoint impact.
The integration provides visibility to both client and Window server endpoints and associated malware detections and to stop propagation of an attack in your organization by banning potentially malicious files or suspected malware.
