​With the recent launch of new security features in Office 365, such as Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), Data Loss Prevention (DLP) and Mobile Device Management (MDM), we are expanding the mission of the Office 365 Compliance Center and, in turn, are renaming it the Office 365 Protection Center. We’ve also redesigned the Office 365 Protection Center with a new user experience that is more intuitive, informative, scalable and insightful.

The new Protection Center includes all the same great features you’re accustomed to in the Compliance Center but surfaces them for a much more intuitive user experience. You’ll also start seeing the Office 365 security features, such as ATP, DLP and MDM, in the Protection Center during the first half of 2016.
