Bitdefender plugs in to Windows Defender ATP

Businesses can now monitor the security status of Windows, Linux and macOS systems from one place.

Bitdefender’s GravityZone Cloud security service for Linux and Mac now works with Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) – Microsoft’s cloud service that allows businesses to detect, investigate and respond to advanced attacks.

The new integration of GravityZone Cloud and Windows Defender ATP means that when the Bitdefender software detects a threat on a macOS or Linux system, an alert is raised in the Windows Defender console.

The alert identifies the file concerned, the type of threat and the affected system, and reports what action was taken.

This means administrators can monitor the security status of Windows, Linux and macOS systems from one place.

“Bitdefender now enables Windows Defender ATP customers to extend their ATP service to non-Windows endpoints by leveraging Bitdefender’s anti-malware complete advanced threat defence solution,” said Microsoft general manager of Windows cyber defence Moti Gindi.

“This provides Sec-ops holistic protection and visibility across their Windows and non-Windows endpoints and ensures they can quickly and accurately detect, investigate and responds to attacks across their entire install base.”

The integration is currently at the preview stage.

Windows Defender is available as part of Microsoft 365 Business (along with Windows 10 and Office 365), and as a separate product.

Bitdefender's endpoint software achieved 100 percent detection in AV-Test's latest tests of business antivirus tools for Windows and of security packages for macOS.
