For every one MDATP license, you can use that on up to 5 computers. Each server needs a separate license (not by user). So to properly protect both clients and servers, at least two unique licenses are required, Windows 10 E5 (or a package) along with a MDATP for Servers license. When you say the trial is not accessible, please try this link instead:

Hi @faqahat,

At minimum, you need to have any of the below licensing:-

  • Microsoft 365 A5
  • Microsoft 365 E5, 
  • Microsoft 365 E5 Security,
  • Windows 10 Enterprise E5
  • Windows 10 Education A5. 

ATP will work, if you have "Microsoft Defender For Endpoint" license. You can review how many licenses are used & how many licenses are still available by logging in Microsoft 365 Admin Center -> Licensing section


Note:- Microsoft 365 E5 also covers Windows 10 Enterprise E5.

Also, once the license is procured, Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (MDE) can be on-boarded to the following OS:-


  • Windows 7 SP1 Enterprise
  • Windows 7 SP1 Pro
  • Windows 8.1 Enterprise
  • Windows 8.1 Pro
  • Windows 10 Enterprise
  • Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC
  • Windows 10 Education
  • Windows 10 Pro
  • Windows 10 Pro Education
  • Windows server
    • Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
    • Windows Server 2012 R2
    • Windows Server 2016
    • Windows Server, version 1803 or later
    • Windows Server 2019
  • And also to Linux, Android, Mac.
