In addition to Microsoft 365 E3, E5, Business Standard, and Business Premium licenses, we have extended Bing Chat Enterprise eligibility to Microsoft 365 A3 and A5 licenses for faculty. In the future, there will also be a stand-alone offering for $5 per user, per month, for those customers who do not have these Microsoft 365 licenses.

With Bing Chat Enterprise, user and organization data are protected and will not leak outside the organization. What goes in—and comes out—remains protected. Chat data is not saved, and Microsoft has no eyes-on access, which means no one can view your data and your data is not used to train the models.
