Microsoft Defender ATP's industry-leading endpoint protection capabilities are now even more comprehensive with a new Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) scanner.


The UEFI scan engine, a new component of the built-in antivirus solution on Windows 10, gives Microsoft Defender ATP the ability to inspect the firmware file system and perform security assessment. Threats and anomalies are reported in the Windows Security app and raised as alerts on the Microsoft Defender Security Center, empowering security operations teams to investigate and respond to firmware attacks.
