Great to see the progress. Are there any details available on how this will be licensed? Covered for licensed users under Windows Enterprise E5?

Or -- dare I say it -- VDA?


Hi Wes, when get closer to General Availability we will share licensing information. For now: public preview doesn't require a license. One information I can share is, when you have "E5 per user licenses", users can get it for their secondary devices.

Is there a way to monitor and manage more then one domain in combination with Microsoft Defender Security Center? 


Johan_Mol: You can onboard devices from whatever domain you want even non-domain joined devices into one single MDSC portal. However you can´t get signals from several MDSC (MDATPs) and upload them into one MDSC (MDATP) tenant.


Waiting for the full version. :)
