Microsoft Defender Products and Licensing Demystified

“If you’re not confused, you’re not paying attention.”

Tom Peters, Thriving on Chaos: Handbook for a Management Revolution

Over the last couple of years there has been more than a few name changes for the Microsoft 365 and Azure security products.

In addition to the Microsoft Defender products, Microsoft Sentinel is Microsoft’s cloud-native SIEM that not only unifies the XDR data from the Microsoft Defender products, but can also consume data from other security solutions such as firewalls and other security tools, to gain visibility across the entire environment.
