Microsoft Defender ATP for Mac Now in Public Preview


Microsoft’s unified endpoint security solution is now publicly available for Mac users, following two months of limited preview. 

Dubbed Microsoft Defender ATP for Mac, the tool has seen great response from users since the limited preview kicked off in March, and Microsoft is ready to make it available for more people. 

“We are thrilled by the response of our customers and the industry to Microsoft Defender ATP for Mac, our own solution for protecting customers across operating systems. Since opening the limited preview, we have been listening to customer feedback and working continuously to enhance the product,” the software giant says

Microsoft Defender ATP for Mac is now available for all of the company’s Microsoft Defender ATP customers who have turned on preview features. The solution is accessible through the onboarding section in Microsoft Defender Security Center.

Compared to the limited preview, the public version of the security tool comes with improved threat handling, enhanced user experience, and bug fixes. Microsoft also reduced the time it takes for devices to appear in Microsoft Defender Security Center, immediately following deployment.
