Microsoft Announces To Bring Antivirus Software “Defender ATP” To Android, iOS

It recently made its unified Office experience combining the Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps available for Android users worldwide

Microsoft has announced that it will bring its antivirus software Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) to iOS and Android.

“Defender ATP offers preventive protection, post-breach detection and automated investigation and response for Windows and macOS. Today we’re announcing support for Linux and plans for iOS and Android as well,” Ann Johnson, Microsoft Corporate Vice President, Cybersecurity Solutions Group, wrote in a blog post on Thursday.

The product is likely to help businesses prevent malware and phishing attacks, thereby helping employees to guard their usernames and passwords or other account information.

While the Microsoft blog post did not reveal the date or roll out of the product for mobiles, a report in CNBC said that it may be available later this year.

The decision to bring its Defender software to mobile devices reflects Microsoft’s growing focus on smartphone products.
