Microsoft has a long history of dynamically changing product names as their portfolio evolves. In this instance the name changes affect Microsoft 365 and Azure Security workloads.

The idea is to group together security workloads and functions under the Microsoft Defender and Azure Defender umbrella.

The first change I want to cover is Microsoft Threat Protection is now Microsoft 365 Defender.

Azure Advanced Threat Protection has changed its name to Microsoft Defender for Identity 

Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection is now Microsoft Defender for Endpoint.

Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection is now Microsoft Defender for Office 365.

Changes for Azure workloads:
