In case you are subscribe to Microsoft 365 Defender or Microsoft Defender for Endpoint Plan 2, you may deploy Microsoft Defender for Linux and in case your distribution of Linux is in the supported list, it should work.
Take a look at:

@Reza_Ameri Someone has already succeeded this install on WSL ? (Ubuntu)

Are you facing any issue with installation?
Is there any error message?
Packet should be running with systemd not init.
Microsoft support say to me. Defender can't running on WSL.
Thank you for follow up.
