Securing Windows-based computers

You can configure Defender to authenticate users when they sign in to their Windows-based computers in your organization.

 

To secure Windows-based computers, in addition to the required Defender components you need to install and configure the component called the Defender Desktop Login on each computer you want to secure with Defender. For more information about installing and configuring the required Defender components, see Deploying Defender.
