Integrate Office 365 Threat Intelligence with Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection

If you are part of your organization's security team, you can integrate Office 365 with Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP). This can help you quickly understand if users’ machines are at risk when you are investigating threats in Office 365. For example, once integration is enabled, you will be able to see a list of machines that are used by the recipients of a detected email message, as well as how many recent alerts those machines have in Windows Defender ATP.

The following image shows the Devices tab that you'll see when have Windows Defender ATP integration enabled:

When Windows Defender ATP is enabled, you can see a list of machines with alerts.

In this example, you can see that the recipients of the email message have four machines and one has an alert in Windows Defender ATP. Clicking the link to a machine opens the machine page in Windows Defender ATP in a new tab.
