In today’s heterogeneous environments, security is becoming more and more complex. Customers are facing a growing attack surface and need help speeding up deployment of their protection tools at scale. To help security teams address these complexities and better protect, detect and respond to threats faster, we are excited to announce Microsoft FastTrack remote deployment guidance for Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), our unified endpoint security platform for proactive threat protection, post-breach detection, automated investigation, and response. We are also announcing an expanded FastTrack scope for Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection, which protects customers against sophisticated threats like phishing and malware with automated investigation and remediation.
Microsoft Defender ATP and Office 365 ATP are two critical components of the suite of Microsoft security products that work seamlessly together to provide protection across the entire attack kill chain, using built-in intelligence from the Microsoft Intelligent Security Graph to protect identities, email, applications, endpoints, and data from evolving threats.
At Microsoft, we are fully committed to helping customers realize the value of our Microsoft 365 security solutions by deploying them more quickly to address their business needs. FastTrack is responsible for making this commitment a reality by advising and supporting customers during the deployment of their technologies. We are now expanding the support we already provide for securing identities to email and endpoints with remote deployment guidance for customers that want to leverage advanced tools to secure their email and endpoints. Together, identity, email and endpoints represent the three most common entry points for attackers.
Microsoft FastTrack enables customers to deploy Microsoft 365 security solutions at no additional cost for eligible subscriptions in North America. FastTrack has an engagement model built on learnings and expertise gained through engineering work with more than 60,000 customers since 2014. We use and share these best practices as part of a deployment process that enables customers to onboard to new services quickly and reliably.
The FastTrack team provides remote guidance, engaging directly with customers or partners. This is an ongoing benefit throughout the life of the subscription, delivered by Microsoft and approved partners.
