Advanced Threat Protection (ATP)

Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) safeguards your organization against malicious threats posed by email messages, links (URLs) and collaboration tools. ATP includes:

  • Threat protection policies: Define threat-protection policies to set the appropriate level of protection for your organization.
  • Reports: View real-time reports to monitor ATP performance in your organization.
  • Threat investigation and response capabilities: Use leading-edge tools to investigate, understand, simulate, and prevent threats.
  • Automated investigation and response capabilities: Save time and effort investigating and mitigating threats.

Policies determine the behavior and protection level for predefined threats. Policy options are extremely flexible. For example, your organization’s security team can set fine-grained threat protection at the user, organization, recipient, and domain level. It is important to review your policies regularly because new threats and challenges emerge daily.

Your Cyber Security Team can help you define policies for each ATP tool in the Office 365 Security & Compliance Center.
