Looks like Office 365 ATP is splitting in two

Seen some chatter here in Australia about there now being two Office 365 ATP SKUs (it appeared on a pricing sheet). Everything I could find suggested that this was not the case, however a US contact pointed out to me the following web site:

https://products.office.com/en-us/exchange/advance-threat-protection

That clearly shows 2 x Office 365 ATP SKUs.

There is not as yet an equivalent AU page.

The main things that Plan 2 adds according to that page are:

Even the services descriptions for Office 365 ATP here:

don’t talk about there being two plans. Thus, I (and others) are somewhat confused as to which version will be included in suites like Microsoft 365 Business. My guess is that most plans that have Office 365 ATP will get Plan 1, with Plan 2 going for higher end enterprise plans. However, that is all here say for now.

So, it looks like are going to get a new ‘advanced’ Office 365 ATP plan soon (Plan 2) but we are unsure in which suites it will be available. More as it becomes available.
