Threat protection for your small business

You can use Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) to protect your users from malicious content when they are using Office apps such as Word and Outlook. By scanning incoming links, attachments, and files, ATP checks for malicious content. You can also set up extra protection from phishing and malware. For information about these threats and the protection Microsoft offers, see Security and compliance.

If you have Microsoft 365 Business, you and your employees already have Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) available. If you have Office 365 Business Premium, you can add Office 365 ATP to your subscription.
