Microsoft Advanced Threat Protection offers businesses an extra layer of protection against malicious threats and phishing attacks. It’s low cost, easy to deploy and easy to manage as it’s fully integrated with Office 365. The machine learning and impersonation detection systems offer businesses a basic level of protection against phishing attacks. However. In October 2017, researchers announced that Microsoft had missed 34,000 phishing emails, demonstrating that it is not the most effective phishing protection platform.
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.
