I'm watching the 70-744 videos and would like to try MS ATA (Advanced Threat Analytics) like they do in the videos, however when it looks like MS has pulled the on-prem download and is forcing people to use the cloud version. Is there anywhere I can find the 1.9 ATA download ISO to practice with? I'm aware its a trial version.
[70-744] ATA - Advanced Threat Analytics Download
Unfortunately, with the upcoming end of support for Microsoft Advanced Threat Analytics (Jan, 2021), Microsoft has removed the download from the evaluation center.
From Microsoft :
As the nature and requirements of security changed, so did the frequency and severity of cyber-attacks. We saw a dramatic increase in the sophistication and velocity of attacks and realized that the current IT security tools provided were limited in the protection they could offer to on-premises environments.
In March 2018, Microsoft introduced Azure Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) as a replacement for Microsoft ATA. Azure ATP takes advantage of cloud-based services and resources, and minimized what is installed on-premises (a lightweight sensor)
Earlier this year, Microsoft renamed many services Including Azure ATP, which is now known as Microsoft Defender for Identity.
Sorry I can't be of more help, I cannot find a copy of Microsoft ATA anymore either. Are you taking the MCSE exams before the Jan 2021 deadline?
