Windows Defender ATP Extended to iOS, macOS, Android, Linux

Microsoft partners will begin rolling out Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection to macOS, Linux, iOS, and Android devices.

Microsoft today announced partnerships with security companies Bitdefender, Lookout, and Ziften to deliver Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) on iOS, macOS, Android, and Linux devices.

ATP was built to give security teams a "single pane of glass" for greater visibility into endpoint security alerts. Threats and detections are fed into the console and every machine has a timeline with an event history for up to six months. While ATP was initially limited to Windows devices, companies use machines from different vendors and want security updates on all of them.

Following today's news, events from boarded devices running iOS, macOS, Android, and Linux will feed alerts into each partner company's Windows Defender ATP console. No additional infrastructure is needed. Microsoft says Bitdefender, Lookout, and Ziften are the first of "several strategic partnerships" for the tool.
