Microsoft Active Protections Program

The Microsoft Active Protections Program (MAPP) is a program for security software providers that gives them early access to vulnerability information so that they can provide updated protections to customers faster.
Members of MAPP receive security vulnerability information from the Microsoft Security Response Center in advance of Microsoft’s monthly security update. They can use this information to more quickly provide protections through their security software or devices, such as antivirus software, network-based intrusion detection systems, or host-based intrusion prevention systems.
Even with these protections, Microsoft recommends that customers deploy security updates to help prevent exploitation of vulnerabilities as quickly as possible.
Interested in becoming a member of MAPP? Security software providers who meet the program criteria are invited to apply for MAPP membership. Please review the program criteria in the Frequently Asked Questions and if you meet the requirements, you can apply for membership at
Microsoft reserves the right to make membership decisions in its sole discretion. All questions about membership applications should be sent to:
If you are a customer of a MAPP partner, you can find out if there are protections for their products available to you.
