Microsoft is working on updating Microsoft Defender for Office 365 so that the users of Microsoft Teams can alert their organization's security teams of any dodgy received message.
Formerly known as Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection or Office 365 ATP, Microsoft Defender for Office 365 safeguards organizations and individuals from malicious threats via email messages, links, and collaboration tools.
The in-development feature can help admins filter potentially dangerous messages that may be targeting employees with malicious payloads or trying to redirect them to phishing websites.
"End users will be able to report suspicious Microsoft Teams messages as a security threat just like they do for emails - to help the organization to protect itself from attacks via Microsoft Teams," Microsoft explains on the Microsoft 365 roadmap.
The new user reporting capability is now in preview and is likely to be rolled out to standard multi-tenants by the end of January 2023 to desktop and web clients worldwide.
Microsoft explained that the "Safe Links in Defender for Office 365 scans URLs at the time of click to ensure that users are protected with the latest intelligence from Microsoft Defender."
