How to install Defender for Endpoint on Autopilot devices

Frequent Contributor

I have OOBE machines that are in my Intune. How do I know that Defender for Endpoint is installed on these devices and what configuration profile should I use to set and any kind of steps available that I can follow to make sure that the new devices that are joined through Autopilot is all onboarded to Defender for Endpoint.

MDE's AV runs by default.
MDE's EDR only starts if it's onboarded. The process to check is mssense.exe and see if it's running. If it is, you are good. If it's not, you should verify that the onboarding policy in MEM (Intune) is set properly.

The Windows binaries are available in this spreadsheet:
