Defender for Endpoint with terminated license

Copper Contributor



What happens to the Defender for Endpoint clients/sensors if the E3 & E5 licenses are terminated?

Will the device stop reporting to the MS 365 Defender portal (then "inactive", then deleted) or a manual offboarding is required?

Hi, this will have no immediate impact other than resulting in license non-compliance. Offboarding is needed to stop the device from reporting to the portal and solve the non-compliance issue.
