RELEASE: Microsoft Cloud App Security & Azure Advanced Threat Protection for US Govt GCC High

imageWe are excited to announce the general availability of Microsoft Cloud App Security and Azure Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) for US Government GCC High customers! The release of these services completes the Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) E5 product suite for US GCC High customers, delivering advanced security functionality by driving critical information and threat protection capabilities for these customers. Additionally, Office 365 Cloud App Security and Cloud Discovery, services which are a subset of Microsoft Cloud App Security for Office 365 E5 and EMS E3/Azure AD P1/P2, respectively, are also now available for GCC High customers.

With the availability of the Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security E5 product suite, our US GCC High customers now have access to the full suite of Microsoft 365 security products, following the announcement of the general availability of Microsoft Defender ATP in August.  As US Government customers embark on their journey to the cloud, our industry-leading end-to-end solution will protect sensitive data and information wherever it travels – across users, applications, files, and platforms.  Through these solutions, we’ll empower departments and agencies to create highly secure workplaces and achieve their mission objectives.
