Microsoft intune connection location

Occasional Contributor

Hi

i am in the process of setting up Defender for endpoint.  The guides on line https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/intune/protect/advanced-threat-protection-configure refers to the old admin centre. Where is the advanced features now located so i can turn on the microsoft intune connection in the new security centre layout?

 

thanks in advance

@Richard42233 Could you please share your licensing on your tenant? You can get that from admin.microsoft.

@Ambarish RH   is this the information you need?  thanks Licenses.png

@Richard42233 The reason why I asked you about licenses is that, your portal doesn't seems to have Defender for endpoint settings. You could also try the direct url https://security.microsoft.com/preferences2/integration

 

When you check an user where you've assigned the licenses, under the user- licenses and apps- apps as below?

@Ambarish RH  The link just takes me to the normal homepage.   I dont have that listed in the app list for a user who has E5 & E5 security. Do i need to get additional addons to get this to work as under the impression that thisshould be inclueded in the current licences?  Thanks Licences 2.PNG

@Richard42233 Looks like you dont have Defender for endpoint as part of this!

 

However, from MS Site, https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/security/defender/prerequisites?view=o365-worldwide

defender is included! Did you check with your license provider?

Just saw another page https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/licensing/product-licensing/enterprise-mobility-security which says 

  • Enterprise Mobility + Security E5  includes all the capabilities of Enterprise Mobility + Security E3 plus  Azure Active Directory Premium (AADP) P2, Azure Information Protection P2, Microsoft Cloud App Security, Azure Active Directory [AD] Identity Protection (as a feature of AADP P2), Azure Advanced Threat Protection, Azure AD Privileged Identity Management (as a feature of AADP P2).

Best to check with your license provider and see what plans can include Defender for endpoint

Thanks for your time looking into this. I will pick it up with my provider

@Richard42233 I was facing the same issue with a trial tenant. Then I realised that I had selected the tenant which did not have Defender for Endpoint in it. Creating a new tenant with Defender for Endpoint resolved the issue.

Note: Sometimes getting the Endpoint option takes time. Refresh after waiting for few minutes.

 

Hope this helps.
