Now, Microsoft is offering Windows Defender ATP support to older Windows clients, even though Windows 7 will fall out of "extended support" about two years from now on January 14, 2020.

The service will be available at the public preview stage this spring. It will also help enterprises where older computers can be brought under a uniform security management and administration tools, that are used for Windows 10 PCs.

Microsoft has announced that it will soon add support for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 to Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP).

Microsoft's announcement described Windows Defender ATP as a "behavioral based EDR [Endpoint Detection and Response] solution", perhaps reflecting the integration of Hexadite's autoremediation technologies. The release targets the users who are now in transition and still have at least Windows 7 devices in possession. A paid-for cloud-based Enterprise service, Windows Defender ATP enables administrators to monitor and respond to threats across a network. "We hear from our customers security is one of the biggest motivators for their move to Windows 10". So, Microsoft is adding Windows Defender ATP "down-level support" for Windows 7 and 8.1.

IT security teams will receive alerts for known and unknown adversaries, additional threat intelligence, and a detailed machine timeline for further investigations and manual response options.

Rob Lefferts, a partner director in Microsoft's Windows & Devices Group, said in a blog post on Monday that "we know that while in their transition, some [customers] may have a mix of Windows 10 and Windows 7 devices in their environments".

Microsoft said that the new EDR feature will work with third-party antivirus solutions, but it should work better with the company's own Windows Defender Antivirus. We doubt Microsoft is too keen to keep providing support for its older versions of Windows unless it can extract some money out of users. "With Windows 10 we built the most secure Windows ever, by hardening the platform itself and by developing Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) - a unified endpoint security platform that helps stop breaches".
