Microsoft Advanced Threat Analytics (ATA) will be generally available in August 2015, informed Idan Plotnik, principal group manager, identity and security services division at Microsoft.

ATA detects advanced attacks using user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA). The software combines machine learning, real-time detection based on the attacker's TTP's (Tactics, Techniques and Procedures) and security issues to help enterprises reduce the attack surface.

ATA will be available for customers to purchase standalone, as well as part of Microsoft's Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) and the Enterprise Client Access License (ECAL) next month.

In a related news, Microsoft also announced the Azure Rights Management support coming to Office for iPad and iPhone.

The current release will support only viewing of rights protected Word, PowerPoint or Excel documents on an iPad or iPhone. Creating rights protected content on iPads and iPhones will be supported later, Microsoft said in another blog post.

The company said it is also working to enable the same for other Office applications on different platforms: Outlook app on iOS and Android will start supporting Azure Rights Management in the fourth quarter of 2015; Office Mobile will support Azure Rights Management with the Windows 10 Enterprise release in the fourth quarter of 2015; Office 2016 will come pre-instrumented with Azure Rights Management controls later this calendar year; and Office for Android will also support Azure Rights Management in the fourth quarter of 2015.

In addition, the company has also brought new capabilities to its Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS). Microsoft said it has expanded its mobile application management (MAM) in Intune to include the new Outlook app. Also, for identity and access management, cloud app discovery has been added to help organisations identify unauthorised SaaS usage.
