Microsoft's portfolio includes more than just the Windows operating system and Office Suite. One of the software maker's developments is a proprietary antivirus, recognized by AV-Test experts as one of the best on the market. Soon, not only PC owners will be able to use its mobile version - the company will release a mobile version of the app for devices running Android and iOS.
The company announced that it is preparing the release of the Defender Advanced Threat Protection software solution for mobile operating systems. The list of app features will include features such as preventing unsafe pages from loading and protecting gadgets from phishing attacks. Microsoft Vice President Rob Lefferts emphasized that "Android and iOS are pretty secure, but malware does exist on these platforms."
The Corporation has previously released Defender ATP software for Windows and macOS. The app offers features such as preventive protection, threat detection, and automatic scanning. The date of the mobile version of the Defender in Google Play and App Store will be announced by the developer later.
