Microsoft's Defender App Comes to iOS and Android

Microsoft Defender ATP Security Platform Coming to iOS and Android

Microsoft Defender ATP for Linux Now In Public Preview

As you might know, previous year Microsoft introduced Defender Advanced Threat Protection for macOS.

The software giant is developing a mobile app of its antivirus/anti threat for both mobile operating systems in a bid to improve mobile security.

Nearly within a year after releasing Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) for macOS computers, Microsoft today announced a public preview of its antivirus software for various Linux distributions, including Ubuntu, RHEL, CentOS and Debian.

A note shared by the company on Thursday says that the Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) will not only fight with threats from third-party apps but will further share analytics also. A preview should be available for interested businesses by then. It is reasoned that attackers will pick at an organisation's point of least resistance, and comprehensive protection across all platforms used by an organisation is therefore necessary. The upside to Defender on Desktop is that it's already installed with Windows 10, keeps itself up to date, and Microsoft makes sure it plays well with other programs that connect to the internet.

Microsoft is also increasing the Defender Advanced Threat Protection to Linux.

In 2018, the Redmond company brought Windows Defender Browser Protection for the popular web browsers, i.e., Google Chrome and Firefox. This move is part of Microsoft's AI security strategy to help protect today's hybrid environments. We can expect the Defender application for iOS and Android to prevent phishing attacks on smartphones.

According to Bleeping Computer, administrators using the Microsoft Defender ATP endpoint client gain access to a command-line antivirus product that will feed any detected threats into the Microsoft Defender Security Center.

While malware on smartphones aren't as common an occurence as it is for PC users, Microsoft corporate vice president Rob Lefferts in a statement says that it can happen to Apple and Google platforms.
