Microsoft has introduced a new Microsoft Defender for Endpoint feature in public preview to help organizations detect weaknesses affecting Android and iOS devices in their enterprise networks.
After enabling the new Mobile Network Protection feature on Android and iOS devices you want to monitor, the enterprise endpoint security platform will provide protection and notifications when it detects rogue Wi-Fi-related threats and rogue certificates.
While the feature is enabled by default on mobile devices, Microsoft also provides detailed info on configuring network protection on Android and iOS devices via the Microsoft Endpoint Manager Admin center.
“To combat this, Microsoft offers a mobile network protection feature in Defender for Endpoint that helps organizations identify, assess, and remediate endpoint weaknesses with the help of robust threat intelligence.”
One month later, Microsoft announced that threat and vulnerability management support for Android and iOS reached general availability in Microsoft Defender for Endpoint.
Earlier this month, Redmond also said that a new MDE feature allows admins to “Contain” unmanaged Windows devices on their network if they were compromised or are suspected to be compromised to block malware and attackers from abusing them to move laterally through the network.
