M365 Changelog: Differentiated Protection for Priority Accounts

Rabia Noureen


MC358300 – Microsoft is introducing differentiated protection for Priority accounts which will provide users tagged as Priority accounts with a higher level of protection. You will be able to see this differentiated protection in the “Context” filter within Threat Explorer and the updated Threat Detection Details tab on the Email Entity page. The Threat Protection Status report will also be updated with a “Context” filter.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 88873

When this will happen:

Microsoft will begin rolling this out in mid-April and expect to complete rollout mid-May.

How this will affect your organization:

Users tagged as Priority accounts will now receive additional protection that can be seen by Security Operations teams in the Threat Explorer and Threat Protection Status experiences.

Additionally, as part of this release, Microsoft is introducing a Context filter within Threat Explorer and the Threat Protection Status report which will enable you to search for emails where Priority account protection was involved. Also, the Threat Detection Details tab on the Email Entity page will be updated to show the threats, corresponding detection details, and whether these detections were identified as part of Priority account protection.

What you need to do to prepare:

Nothing is needed to prepare, as this new protection will be enabled automatically.
