Microsoft is rolling out Built-In Protection to Defender for Office 365, a new feature that would automatically enable recommended settings and policies to make sure all new and existing users get at least a basic level of protection.

Microsoft Defender for Office 365 provides Office 365 enterprise email accounts with automated attack remediation and defends them from various threats, including business email compromise and credential phishing.

“Some security controls are inadvertently overlooked, and as a result some or all users are left with incomplete protection,” said Defender for Office 365 Senior Program Manager Sundeep Saini.

“We are introducing Built-In Protection for Microsoft Defender for Office 365 to automatically elevate all users within your organization to the base level of security protection,” the company explains on the Microsoft 365 roadmap.

This new default security preset is designed to patch gaps in enterprise protection coverage and improve an organization’s overall security posture by reducing the risk of a breach.

Built-In Protection will also automatically protect uses in new domains added to a tenant with a base level of Safe Links and Safe Attachment, thus reducing the time needed to protect the newly enrolled users.
