New Blog | Host Microsoft Defender data locally in Switzerland


By Jose Celis Charry


We are pleased to announce that local data residency support in Switzerland is now generally available for Microsoft Defender for Endpoint and Microsoft Defender for Identity. This announcement demonstrates our commitment to providing customers with the highest levels of security and compliance by offering services that are aligned to local data sovereignty requirements. Swiss customers can now confidently onboard to Defender for Endpoint and Defender for Identity in Switzerland, knowing that their data at rest will remain within Swiss boundaries, which ensures that customers in Switzerland can meet their regulatory obligations and maintain control over their data.


Defender products are now available in the US, the EU, the UK and Australia.

Configure Microsoft Defender for Endpoint with local data hosted in Switzerland.




  1. Your EntraID tenant needs to be set to Switzerland, so the Microsoft Defender for Endpoint tenant will also be provisioned in this geo.
