How to Configure Microsoft Defender With Microsoft Intune

In this blog post, I will show you how to configure Microsoft Defender on Windows 10 using Microsoft Intune.

With Microsoft Intune, we can control and manage almost any Windows 10 operating system component.

This blog post will touch on the built-in Microsoft Defender security suite, which includes a firewall, AV, smart screen, and more.

Get Started

To get started, I will create a configuration profile by clicking on Devices and Windows Configuration profiles and create a new profile.

In the Platform option, select Windows 10 and under Profile type, select Endpoint protection.

To configure each section, click on the option and use the controls to manage the configuration.

Once a configuration has been put in place, the end-user will not have the option to change the configuration.

Use the assignment option to select the group; however, deploying the configuration to a pilot group is recommended before rolling it to all users.
