It is their intention to provide security solutions as supremely possible till January 2020, the time when they stop all support for Windows 7 to encourage and convert users to Windows 10. However, since a lot of users are still on the previous versions of the OS, Microsoft has announced that it is adding Windows Defender ATP down-level support for Windows 7 Service Pack 1 and Windows 8.1. Microsoft later indicated it was adding autoremediation capabilities to this service through its integration of Hexadite technology, so the service is also created to automatically fix security problems.

Holistic securityAnnounced by the company today, the upcoming release of Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) for Windows 7 and 8.1 signals a change in Microsoft's security support policies Since its introduction, Defender ATP has been positioned as one of Windows 10's most significant security enhancements.

The arrival of Windows Defender ATP on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 is a big deal for a couple of reasons.

Defender ATP is a functionality suite that lets enterprises monitor their devices, proactively block exploits and log potential threats to the cloud.

Microsoft recently partnered with Bitdefender, Lookout, and Ziften to extend the Windows Defender ATP threat detection across Linux, macOS, Android, and iOS devices to ensure that there are no weak endpoints inside a company's network. This cloud-driven feature will be made available as a preview in the spring.

IT security teams will receive alerts for known and unknown adversaries, additional threat intelligence, and a detailed machine timeline for further investigations and manual response options. The new addition to this list starting today is SentinelOne that uses static and behavioral AI engines providing not just similar security solutions but as well for encrypted traffic inspection with the help of a single autonomous agent. The use of Windows Defender ATP requires having Microsoft 365 E5 licensing, according to this Microsoft 365 Enterprise document. We doubt Microsoft is too keen to keep providing support for its older versions of Windows unless it can extract some money out of users.
