Recently, we introduced Exchange Online Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), a new email filtering service that complements Exchange Online Protection (EOP) and provides protection against specific types of advanced threats. We are pleased to announce that Exchange Online ATP is now available to purchase through our direct channel, the Microsoft Online Subscription Program (MOSP).
Starting June 1, 2015 you will be able to order ATP through MOSP. You can also purchase ATP through Volume Licensing and Cloud Solution Partners starting August 1, 2015. At launch, Exchange Online ATP is only available to Office 365 commercial and multi-tenant Government (Government Pricing) customers. For Education, Government Community Cloud (GCC), and Nonprofit customers, ATP will be made available at a later date.
Exchange Online Advanced Threat Protection provides three key benefits:
- Protection against unknown malware and viruses by providing robust zero-day protection using the safe attachments capability.
- Real-time, time-of-click protection against malicious URLs that protect your users in real-time against harmful links using the Safe links capability.
- Rich reporting and URL trace capabilities that give admins insights into the kind of attacks happening in the organization.
