Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection, Microsoft’s preventive technology that can detects attacks and zero-day exploits, is now generally available for SharePoint, OneDrive and Microsoft Teams. ATP is currently included in Office 365 Enterprise E5 and Office 365 Education A5, and it can also be added to many Exchange and Office 365 subscription plans.
By enabling Office 365 ATP, companies can make sure that they’re protected against any kind of malicious content within their tenant. “Examples of file activity signals include anonymous, company wide or explicit sharing, or activity from guest users,” the company explained. “Threat feeds that Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection leverages include known malware in email or SharePoint, Windows Defender/Defender ATP detections, suspicious or risky logins or other indicators of irregular file activity within your tenant.”
Office 365 ATP can be configured by IT admins in the Office 365 Security and Compliance Center. You can learn more about how to enable it for SharePoint, OneDrive and Microsoft Teams on this support page.
