Microsoft is launching Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection, an “optional Windows 10 enterprise service that flags signs of cyberattacks”.

According to a report by Engadget, Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection will look for signs such as exploit attempts and unusual system file access.

“If something’s up, it’ll recommend a response to the IT staff,” stated the report.

The threat protection is set to become widely available later in 2016, with a limited number of early adopters currently using the system.

The Microsoft video below gives an overview of Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection.
