This intermediate Windows Defender training prepares learners to protect your organization's network endpoints while protecting against malware and credential theft with mastery over Microsoft Defender.
Rather than know a ton about one topic, desktop support specialists tend to know a little bit about a lot of different technologies. They tend to be generalists — the folks who get called to help when things go wrong with any number of different technologies. For more and more companies, that number is beginning to include basic security configurations — but lots of desktop support specialists aren't trained for that change.
Learning the tools and technologies that help keep your systems and networks safe is a critical part of any desktop support specialist's future. This Windows Defender training will reveal how much of the work of keeping your devices safe the Windows security tool does for you.
For anyone with desktop support specialists on their team, this Microsoft training can be used to onboard new desktop support specialists, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a Microsoft reference resource.
