Microsoft Defender for Office 365

The University is launching Microsoft Defender for Office 365.  This new cloud-based service safeguards against malicious threats, malware and viruses.  Many of these threats are found in links and attachments in your email messages.   Microsoft Defender will scan all emails links and attachments before it gets into your Inbox.  If the link or attachment is determined to be safe, the user will not see any difference in their email message.  If the link or attachment is determined to be malicious or a potential threat, it will not be included in your message.  Instead you may see one of the following Safe Link warning messages:
