How to buy Microsoft Defender for Endpoint P1‎ standalone license SKU

Copper Contributor



I have started a Microsoft Defender for Endpoint P1 trial via the Microsoft 365 admin center.


But I cannot find any option to actually buy Microsoft Defender for Endpoint P1‎ standalone licenses.

Although several Microsoft pages mention that Microsoft Defender for Endpoint can be purchased as standalone license (Minimum requirements for Microsoft Defender for Endpoint | Microsoft Learn)


How can I buy standalone licenses?

@hannesdecorte if you are a SMB client ( <300 Users ) you can simply purchase the Microsoft Defender for Business. below you can find the comparison with MDE P1 and P2


Defender for Endpoint Plan 1 and Plan 2 (standalone or as part of other Microsoft 365 plans)


You can only buy Microsoft Defender for Endpoint standalone licensing from a Microsoft partner
