Today, we are excited to announce that Microsoft Defender for Endpoint support of Windows 10 on Arm devices is generally available. This expanded support is part of our continued efforts to extend Microsoft Defender for Endpoint capabilities across all the endpoints defenders need to secure.
Arm technology is enabling the digital transformation with innovative new form factors, better connectivity and mobile possibilities, instant-on technology, and amazing battery life. These elements also empower organizations to support the shift to remote and fluid work environments – a shift that requires a security-first mindset. As we continue to move forward in a new hybrid work environment, security needs to be an integral part of that change. Microsoft is committed to empowering defenders in their daily efforts to protect their organizations’ data and employees. This commitment is deeply ingrained in our DNA and reflected in the product investments that we make.
Microsoft’s investment in Windows 10 on Arm offers powerful, highly-mobile experiences, with security at the core. These devices are designed to take full advantage of the built-in protections available in Windows 10 such as encryption, data protection, and next gen antivirus and antimalware capabilities. Microsoft Defender for Endpoint compliments these security features with an industry leading, unified, cloud powered enterprise endpoint security platform that helps security teams prevent, detect, investigate and respond to advanced threats, while delivering secure and productive end user security experiences.

All the data, insights, and functionality in Microsoft Defender for Endpoint is exactly the same as its always been including things like device inventory, alerts, response actions, advanced hunting, and more, including the onboarding experience.
