For this reason, Microsoft ATP should not be used alone to protect businesses from phishing or targeted social engineering attacks. If you are planning to use this solution as an extra layer of security, we also recommend using a dedicated third party security solution in our Post – Delivery Protection category. These solutions will be more effective to stop phishing attempts and business email compromise.
