Microsoft says threat and vulnerability management support for Android and iOS has reached general availability in Microsoft Defender for Endpoint, the company’s enterprise endpoint security platform.
“Threat and vulnerability management in Microsoft Defender for Endpoint continuously monitors and identifies impacted devices, assesses associated risks in the environment, and provides intelligent prioritization and integrated workflows to seamlessly remediate vulnerabilities.”

One month later, in July 2020, the endpoint security solution was updated with a Microsoft Secure Score for Devices feature to evaluate the collective security configuration state of devices on enterprise networks.
Starting with October 2020, the Microsoft enterprise endpoint security platform also provides admins with reports that help them keep track of vulnerable Windows and macOS devices, including vulnerability severity levels, exploit availability, vulnerability age, and vulnerable devices by operating system.
In April 2021, Redmond announced that Microsoft Defender for Endpoint also comes with Windows 10 on Arm support.
