Windows Server 2019 comes with a lot of new feature. One of the large investment Microsoft is making in this Windows Server release, is in security. And one of my favorite new security features in Windows Server 2019 is the support for Windows Defender Advanced Thread Protection. Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) is a unified platform for preventative protection, post-breach detection, automated investigation, and response. It was available for Windows 10 devices for awhile, and now it is available for Windows Server 2019 and other version of Windows Server.

Quick Look at Windows Defender ATP for Windows Server 2019
Using Windows Defender ATP is pretty simple. It is also very simple with Windows Server 2019. After you have onboarded your Windows Server you can already see alerts and recommendations in your dashboard.
To have some active alerts, you can create a test alert. This is also recommended to do after you have onboarded your machine. With that you can see if the connection is working.
