Consider Using Intune For Microsoft Defender Deployment
Microsoft's Defender product is now available for full endpoint and cloud security protection for the enterprise environment. Defender Endpoint Protection can be deployed in multiple ways via InTune and group policy. Likewise, Defender can be implemented strictly as an on-premise solution, a cloud deployment, or a mix of both. For the cloud or hybrid deployments, it's suggested to use InTune for Defender management.
InTune can be configured to deploy Microsoft Defender Endpoint Protection through the cloud IntTune portal. With Intune, organizations can deploy Defender Endpoint Protection to Windows devices, Mac OS devices, Android smartphones, and iOS devices. It's worth considering using InTune for Defender deployment since it can work with all major computing OSes.
Before applying Defender Endpoint Protection with InTune, consider identifying target users and devices in various groups throughout the business that can be used in a pilot program. Pilot programs are important to ensure that additional configurations won't need to be added to Defender before deploying it to all users within an organization.
