Microsoft makes its security software for macOS more widely available

Microsoft has announced a public preview of Defender Advanced Threat Protection for macOS. This allows more customers of Microsoft’s Defender ATP to try security for Apple’s operating system.

From Thursday, Microsoft Defender ATP customers who have enabled preview functions within the suite can access security for Macs via the onboarding section of the Microsoft Defender Security Center. Microsoft announced the expansion to macOS in March, but since then has only had a limited preview.

Microsoft has implemented various optimisations based on feedback obtained from that limited preview. The company claims to have improved accessibility, monitoring and performance, added support for 37 languages ​​and optimized protection against tampering or system adaptation.

Microsoft Defender ATP for macOS is for Enterprise customers who want to be able to protect not only PCs but also Macs with a single suite. The software runs on macOS Mojave, macOS High Sierra and macOS Sierra and there must be at least 1GB of free disk space. There is no support for beta versions of Apple’s OS.
