Our mission for Microsoft Defender ATP has always been to protect customers with the best endpoint security solution that they will absolutely love. Since day one, we have been hyper focused on getting direct customer feedback in our development process. For those who have had the opportunity to visit or interact with our teams in Israel, India, or Redmond they would have experienced a level of passion and customer obsession that is inspiring, infectious, and evident that customer focus is deep within the DNA of our culture.


This customer obsession has been the driving force behind our innovation and the features that we’ve delivered. Built in the cloud and based on the broadest and deepest threat intelligence in the world, Microsoft Defender ATP has evolved to become an industry leading, holistic, endpoint security solution.


Today, we are very proud to share that SC Media has awarded Microsoft Defender ATP a perfect 5-star rating in their 2020 Endpoint Security Review. 


SC Media, a well-respected technical resource in the cybersecurity industry, has been around since 1989 and is the review arm of SC Magazine. In this review, the magazine highlighted the robustness of our built-in threat and vulnerability management capabilities, the ease with which customers can get an accurate picture of threat incidents, and the fact that our smart prioritization helps connect security alerts and vulnerabilities.


The review acknowledged that our automated investigation capabilities kick in at a certain alert threshold and how the alerts queue streamlines investigations and mitigates alert fatigue. It mentioned our advanced analytics, how they help to connect the dots between and within attacks, and how alerts are surfaced efficiently from several detection sources. It also mentioned that Microsoft Defender ATP simplifies security for all with easy to understand descriptions of threats and root causes right in Microsoft Defender Security Center.


Finally, our agentless, operationally lightweight approach, and simple management interface were highlighted and that security pros will find the product to be a comprehensive unified endpoint security solution that has a full set of capabilities to address today’s threat landscape.


The team is very proud of this recognition, but we really have our customers to thank the most for their partnership and collaboration in our journey with Microsoft Defender ATP.
