Microsoft Defender for Android: reached for selected users

As announced in February by CNBCThe Microsoft had planned to bring the default antivirus system of Windows 10 in devices Android. The Microsoft Defender app for Android is now available available in the Google Play Store as a software preview.

Microsoft Defender

According to the description released by the company for application Microsoft Defender for Android will not be directly available to everyone for free. It will initially only be available to licensed corporate users Microsoft 365 E5.

Microsoft Defender ATP mainly serves corporate users, who have Appliances Android. Therefore, it has some business-focused protection features. Some of these features include security administrators, who can create custom indicators for protection in Internet. The application may also exclude users who do not follow a company's threat protection policies.

In addition it can warn of suspicious application installations and block malicious websites being opened via WhatsApp, web browser, email, etc.

Selective availability puts the Android application at a disadvantage over the best antivirus applications on the platform. However, since this is just a software preview we do not know of Microsoft's plans. So the application may not be aimed only at business users.

In addition, according to CNBC, Microsoft Defender would be released to users Linux and iOS. Of course, it would be interesting to see how it could work on Linux, but Microsoft Defender for iOS does not seem like a good idea.
