Microsoft Defender for endpoint server licensing, Microsoft licensing is hard to follow at the best of times, not to mention product name changes/updates, licensing terms etc etc.
Recently I have been involved in licensing questions for reseller and Managed Service Providers (MSP) across my region and Microsoft Defender for endpoint server licensing has come up several times. I profess that I am not the expert on any of these things and I rely on my knowledge as well as materials that others have written to be able to assist others.
Some key features:
- Defender for Endpoint Server is “unlocked” if a customer has 50 Defender for Endpoint licenses
- Defender for Endpoint servers is “unlocked” if a customer has Microsoft Defender for Cloud
- There is no auditing on the Defender for Endpoint Server license, as you deploy the total licenses available do not change.
- This may change tomorrow (please review the first paragraph) so please perform your own checks
