Microsoft rolls out Windows 7 end of support notifications

Microsoft Launches Windows Defender for Mac

Microsoft Defender for macOS is the anti-virus you didn’t know you needed

Microsoft said the interface of its Mac client would be similar to the Windows Defender software now running on Windows 10 devices.

As ATP is limited to businesses, it remains unclear if Microsoft is also planning to bring a consumer version of Microsoft Defender to the Mac. Defender ATP for Windows tracks various system behaviors and reports them to the ATP cloud service, which can be used to detect threats even without identifying any specific piece of malware. Coming soon, Configuration Manager and Microsoft Intune are being updated with new insights and deployment options to make it easier to manage your devices across platforms.

Microsoft is now calling Windows Defender as Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection, instead of Windows Defender ATP.

Windows 10 is no longer offered as a free upgrade for Windows 7 users; that offer was only available for a period after Windows 10 first hit the market.

According to a different official blog post, Microsoft has roped in the support of antivirus and network-protection firms Bitdefender, Lookout, SentinelOne and Ziften to add some sort of unspecified protection to Android and iOS devices as well. Recently, Microsoft released Windows Defender Application Guard browser extensions for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, so a wider release seems natural.

The same notification also comes with a "Learn more" button that links to a Windows 7 page were users are recommended to upgrade to Windows 10. The company's Defender anti-virus software, previously a Windows exclusive, has made the leap to Apple.
