Enhancements to Advanced Threat Protection

In earlier blogs we discussed Advanced Threat Protection and how it secures environments from malicious links and attachments in Exchange Online.  Announced on April 4, ATP will now extend to ProPlus desktop clients.  When users open Word, Excel or PowerPoint and click a URL within the document, spreadsheet or presentation, ATP will now inspect the link to determine if it is malicious.  If it is determined to be malicious the user will be redirected to a warning page same as current experience in Exchange Online.  Check out our blog from last month to secure your trial of Advanced Threat Protection which is available in E5 or as an add on service.  For more information on this Safe Links update and other security and compliance capabilities please see the full article from the Office Blogs.
