For more information about the change, see this announcement. To learn more about the recent renaming of Microsoft security services, see the Microsoft Ignite Security blog.
This article provides a list of content inspection statuses and their meanings.
Content inspection status
The table lists each content inspection status and its description.

|Not applicable||Content inspection wasn’t applicable for this file. This status might appear because no policy requires content inspection of this file or because the file type isn’t supported.|
