EndPoint Virus Definitions RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have worked with several virus\malware applications over the years in an enterprise company. When a new threat is out you usually see an update to the client desktop within hours depending on the threat and the applications being used to
    protect your environment.

    I have been searching all over for information on MS EndPoint Protection.  I want to know how one finds out what threats are being address in newly released pattern files.  I know Trend Micro does this, and various other protection suites.  Is there a centralized area\place where the information is available for the administrator of the application.  I would really like to be able to tell my manager "Yes, we are protected from that threat" because........ 

    Can anyone point me in the right direct?

    Thank you,

  • Hi,

    I haven't found such a place. But you could search threats in Malware Protection Center. If the threat doesn't exist, submit the threat file to the Microsoft.

    Best Regards,
