Microsoft Defender for Business

Microsoft Defender for Business is a security solution for small and medium businesses of up to 300 users. Until yesterday, Microsoft Defender for Business was only available for Microsoft 365 Business Premium users. Microsoft has now announced the general availability of Microsoft Defender for Business as a standalone endpoint security offering.

Business owners can now buy endpoint security standalone from the product page, via theĀ Microsoft Admin CenterĀ or through IT partner.

Microsoft Defender for Business is built on the foundation of Microsoft Defender for Endpoint, and features many of the same capabilities.

Microsoft Defender for Business offers the following:

  • Device security with threat and vulnerability management, next-generation protection, and endpoint detection and response.
  • Easy to use wizard-driven set up, with recommended security policies activated out-of-the-box to quickly secure devices.
  • Security that keeps you productive and works with your IT without compromising budget.
  • Extend protection across devices for Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android.
