Windows Defender Being Renamed


Recommended Posts

Windows Defender Gets a New Name: Microsoft Defender


In a statement to BleepingComputer, Microsoft has stated that they are making these changes to show that their security products have become cross-platform under the umbrella name Microsoft Defender.


“As part of our continued $1B a year investment to deliver a world class security platform for our

customers, we are extending Windows Defender ATP capabilities beyond the Windows operating

system. As a result, we are renaming to reflect our cross-platform approach to endpoint security”

Could be but I didn't see anything about it until yesterday. Perhaps you heard about it at one of the conferences you attended.
