Defender for Endpoint is part of the Microsoft security stack that focuses on protecting devices. However, it goes far beyond simple AV. This session will help you understand the components of the service, how they are configured and the enhanced security they can provide environments, from PC to MAC, iOS, Android and Linux as well as how it integrates with other Microsoft security services. Given the inclusion of Defender for Endpoint in Microsoft Business Premium this is a must-see session for those wanting to learn more about maximising the new and included security capability that is now built into this common SMB license.
Participants will gain an understanding of Microsoft Defender for Business features, functionality and integration
