View reports for Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection

If you are an Office 365 Enterprise global administrator, security administrator, or security analyst, you can view reports for Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) in the Security & Compliance Center. (Go to Reports > Dashboard.)

The Security & Compliance Center dashboard can help you see where Advanced Threat Protection is working

ATP reports include new real-time reports, the Threat protection status report, the ATP Message Disposition report, and the ATP File Types report.

Important: Advanced Threat Protection is available in Office 365 Enterprise E5. If your organization is using another Office 365 Enterprise subscription, Advanced Threat Protection can be purchased as an add-on. (As a global admin, in the Office 365 admin center, choose Billing > Add subscriptions.) For more information about plan options, see Compare All Office 365 for Business Plans.

In addition to the ATP reports described in this article, email security reports are available. Email security reports include a top senders and receivers report, a spoof mail report, a spam detections report, and more. See View email security reports in the Security & Compliance Center.

(New!) Real-time reports

Real-time reports are available in the Security & Compliance Center. The real-time reports include a malware report for email, a user-reported messages report, a phish report for email, and a malware report for files.

Important: The new ATP real-time reports are pivoted by recipient counts with message times displayed in local time zones. This differs from the Threat protection status report, which aggregates the number of email messages displayed in UTC.
