Since April 5, 2021, Microsoft Defender for Endpoint has been supporting Windows 10 on ARM devices. This is part of a broader developer effort to extend the capabilities of the security platform across all popular operating systems. Information about this appeared on the official Microsoft page.
The company noted that ARM devices are already designed to take full advantage of the security capabilities available in Windows 10. This includes encryption, personal data protection, protection against next-generation malware, and so on.
Microsoft Defender for Endpoint helps you prevent, detect, investigate, and respond to advanced threats while keeping your device productive. In addition, the updated antivirus offers users next-generation cloud-based proactive protection, automated malware analysis and unified security management.
Microsoft added that there are no major changes to Microsoft Defender for Endpoint in the ARM-based PC version. All data, analytics and functionality of the antivirus remain the same, including alerts, responses, advanced search, and more.
