This morning, at Ignite, we announced Microsoft 365 Defender which brings the threat protection service portfolio across Microsoft 365 together under a unified brand. Microsoft 365 Defender offers powerful prevention, detection, hunting and response capabilities to threats across identities, endpoints, cloud apps, email, and documents.


This new unified branding is a testament to our continued endeavor to integrate the different threat protection focused services across Microsoft. We’re continuing to focus on amplifying the protection for organizations and offering differentiated experiences that greatly enhance security teams’ effectiveness and efficiency.


As part of this announcement, several products have been brought together under the Defender brand. Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection is now Microsoft Defender for Office 365.


While the name has changed, what has not changed is Microsoft’s continued commitment to offer best-of-breed protection against attacks targeting Office 365. Our strategy to offer customers unparalleled protection on Office 365, grounded on three foundational differentiators, has not changed.





Our commitment to taking a holistic view to protecting customers on Office 365 has also not changed. Each of the categories below is a critical peg to ensuring that organizations are protected across Office 365.






We will continue to innovate and offer the best protection, experiences and value to our customers. In fact, today we’re also announcing new capabilities in Defender for Office 365.
