Microsoft Threat Protection is a new solution from Microsoft that enables out-of-the-box, coordinated defenses across the Microsoft 365 security stack for email, endpoints, identities, and apps. It orchestrates cross-product defenses to detect, block, and prevent sophisticated attacks and automatically heal assets affected by these attacks.
Microsoft Threat Protection stitches together threat signals to help determine the full scope and impact of a threat: how it entered the environment, what it has affected, and how it's currently impacting the organization. It leverages the end-to-end view of the attack to orchestrate automatic response actions across products, stopping the attack and applying self-healing technologies to mailboxes, endpoints, and user identities.
