Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) enabled Friday, Oct. 16
Posted by Gary Barton on October 12, 2020

Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) will be enabled for OneDrive, Sharepoint, and Microsoft Teams on Friday, Oct. 16.

What does that mean for you? An extra layer of protection for files uploaded and downloaded from these applications. Users shouldn't notice any difference in using these applications. ATP helps detect and block existing files that are identified as malicious in team sites and document libraries

What if you have files identified as malicious? ATP will block the file and mark it with an X in a red shield. The file will still be listed in the document library and in web, mobile, or desktop applications. Users can't open, copy, move, or share the file. But they can delete the blocked file.

Read more about ATP and what to expect when it's enabled.
