Late last week, Microsoft announced that Mobile Network Protection for Android and iOS devices would be integrated into the Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (MDE) cloud-based security platform. As announced, this feature will help companies find weak spots in their mobile data networks.

Microsoft said the new MDE service will be disabled by default, claiming that when users enable it, it will notify IT security administrators about various Wi-Fi threats and fake certificates. It is also able to detect unwanted hardware, such as Hak5 Wi-Fi Pineapple device, which is often used by cybercriminals to steal data transmitted over the target network.
