On Tuesday, software giant Microsoft unveiled new Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection service, which marks a noteworthy enhancement over the company’s venerable Windows Defender consumer utility program used for detecting malware in Windows clients.
Describing the newly-announced Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection service as "a combination of client technology built into Windows 10 and a robust cloud service," Microsoft said that the service will essentially unfold a “post-breach” mechanism for organizations to detect attacks launched by exploiting machine-learning capabilities.
Microsoft claims that the Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection service will spare organizations the tedious task of detecting security breaches by raking through logs, Microsoft said: "Simplified investigation tools replace the need to explore raw logs by exposing process, file, URL and network connection events for a specific machine or across the enterprise."
As such, according to the details shared by Microsoft, Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection can largely be described as a service for the use of organizations rather than just a utility program for consumers. The service is presently in use across Microsoft; and is also under early adoption by a few companies including Avanade.
