Microsoft Defender for Endpoint

Copper Contributor

Hi all,


Regarding to Microsoft defender for endpoint, Currently I'm using MDE P2 stand alone license without intune/MEM or MCEM for management. I got a lot of endpoint status defender antivirus not up to date event management configuration and policy based GPO. Do we need to configure force update policy from GPO?


Thank you

@NY_Dina, on one of the devices, manually run "Windows Update" and see if the 'security intelligence update' (aka signature/definition) gets updated. If not, you will need to dig into what's causing the "Windows Update" to fail. If you need assistance, please open a Microsoft CSS support ticket.
