Customer Advisory Council (CAC)

We periodically select customers to be part of our Customer Advisory Council (CAC). We form a close relationship with these organizations, inviting them to exclusive, in-person events and giving them access to non-public roadmaps and information. CAC members give in-depth feedback our on products and consequently exert a great deal of influence our plans, priorities, and designs. Part of our criteria for choosing CAC members is how active they are in this community. If you would like to be part of our CAC, join our community, participate heavily, and then reach out to me.

Hi Ryan, 

Can you please clarify on M365E5Security ShrdSvr ALNG SubsVL MVL PerUsr license feature, I have wanted to know if it has Windows defender ATP as part of its component.


Does this work with my EMS E3 Licenses or independently.

Thank you.

@Ryan Heffernan Dear: Ryan Heffernan and all my friends can not participate in audio and video discussions, but I will share the updates with the following link when necessary.

@Jerry Gonzalez Windows defender is enough to protect you, but if you want to protect your machine and those around you, you must create a microsoft account.

Looking forward to this, Thanks!

I would like to participate in the Microsoft Advisory program.

I am currently working on quite a number of projects with the EMS E5 Security sku and Azure Security center and Azure Sentinel in the coming weeks.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
