Microsoft have always enjoyed a good name change and nowhere has this been more true than their rapidly growing security portfolio. You’ll be pleased to know the pace of change continues following Microsoft Ignite 2020!
|Old name||New name|
|Microsoft Threat Protection||Microsoft 365 Defender|
|Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection||Microsoft Defender for Endpoint|
|Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection||Microsoft Defender for Office 365|
|Azure Advanced Threat Protection||Microsoft Defender for Identity|
|Azure Security Center Standard Edition||Azure Defender for Servers|
|Azure Security Center for IoT||Azure Defender for IoT|
|Advanced Threat Protection for SQL||Azure Defender for SQL|
So gone are the various ATPs and Security Centers but now, like Marvel, we’ve got a bunch of Defenders to contend with!
There have also been a range of new features additions which will continue to strengthen Microsoft’s security offering including support for Amazon AWS and Google Cloud.

what about the MDATP for Servers SKU.. what does that change to? certainly not Endpoint… are they pushing Azure Defender for Servers?
Looking at Microsoft’s documentation, it does appear that servers are being brought under the “endpoint” umbrella.
There’s still a mix of new/old naming everywhere but this page:
“Microsoft Defender ATP extends support to also include the Windows Server operating system”
So I’d say we now have desktop endpoints and server endpoints.
