Microsoft Active Protections Program
Members of MAPP receive security vulnerability information from the Microsoft Security Response Center in advance of Microsoft’s monthly security update. They can use this information to more quickly provide protections through their security software or devices, such as antivirus software, network-based intrusion detection systems, or host-based intrusion prevention systems.
Even with these protections, Microsoft recommends that customers deploy security updates to help prevent exploitation of vulnerabilities as quickly as possible.
For more information about how MAPP partners build enhanced protections that better protect customers, read the white paper " Building a Safer, More Trusted Internet Through Information Sharing."
