Microsoft365 A3 EDU Changes
Hello everyone, this is Darren Shahinian with ScholarBuys and I just wanted to put a reminder out there that there were some recent changes with Microsoft licensing for Education. Specifically, if you institution is licensing Microsoft 365 A3. Microsoft is now including their next generation endpoint security solution, Defender for Endpoint Plan 1, as part of your existing A3 entitlement. We’ve been having a ton of conversations around endpoint security over the last few years with our customers. It has been very paramount for schools to look at adjusting their security posture as the attacks continue to rise, both in frequency and complexity. Microsoft’s Defender for Endpoint Plan 1 is a next generation AI and Machine Learning based solution that is akin to a lot of next gen solutions that are out there and available for Education already. Having this be a part of your existing license structure is just a tremendous value. So we wanted to make sure that this message got out there. If you have any questions around what your institution is entitled to today from a security perspective with Microsoft, or if you’d like to explore the solution in a bit more detail, please feel free to reach out to your dedicated ScholarBuys resource. If you are unsure who that might be, check out our website. It’s probably the easiest way to get a hold of us. We look forward to speaking with you.
