Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection is now called Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), thus bringing compatibility with Apple's MacOS, it revealed in a blog post.
The ATP client can be installed on devices running macOS Mojave, MacOS High Sierra or macOS Sierra. It offers the usual virus and threat protection along with fast and full system scans.
Right now, it is only available as a limited example that Microsoft business customers can sign up for.
We do not know when Microsoft plans to make the Mac version of its software available, and neither it nor Apple responded promptly to requests for additional comments.
It's Microsoft's latest move to make its security software available to more people – last weekto Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.
