Introducing Microsoft Defender for Business – coming soon in preview
At Ignite, we announced Microsoft Defender for Business – a cost-effective, easy-to-use, enterprise-grade endpoint security solution, that’s purpose-built for businesses with 1-300 employees – is coming soon in preview. As small and medium businesses (SMBs) face increased cyberthreats like ransomware, Defender for Business can help elevate their security by bringing enterprise-grade technologies like next-generation protection, endpoint detection and response, threat and vulnerability management, and automated investigation and remediation. Partners will also enjoy the benefits of Microsoft 365 Lighthouse integration and will be able to support customers across a range of platforms and devices.
When Defender for Business is generally available, customers and partners can purchase it as a standalone SKU, or as part of Microsoft 365 Business Premium.
