From today, Android users can also use Microsoft's commercial anti-virus product, Defender advanced thread protection (ATP). At the RSA Security Conference held in February this year, Microsoft announced that it would expand ATP to mobile platforms, and today's first public preview finally officially met us.
Enterprises that have deployed Microsoft defender ATP protection will see new options on the dashboard, which they can enable and deploy an Android Application on their employees' devices.
Microsoft said that the defender ATP for android app also has many hidden functions because it integrates the larger and more complex defender ATP, intune and configuration manager platforms. The app is fully competent as a gatekeeper of the company's network, allowing it staff to lock Android smartphones out of the enterprise network or prevent users from accessing the enterprise app.
Through this function, Microsoft hopes to prevent those Android devices that have been hacked from becoming the pedal to enter the data repository of larger enterprises. Once hackers enter, they can obtain more and more sensitive data than the intrusion devices.
Here, it staff can make informed decisions, such as rejecting alarms, locking devices out of the company's network, and launching more thorough event response procedures.
