Windows Defender Gets a New Name: Microsoft Defender

Quote

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”

Hello,

Wasn't this announced a few months ago?

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

Hello,

That might be it, but I thought the rebranding had been done a while ago.
