Microsoft Defender for Business, a new endpoint security solution specially built for small and medium-sized businesses, is now rolling out in preview worldwide.

Microsoft first announced Defender for Business last month and released it in response to the 300% increase in ransomware attacks in the previous year, with over 50% of them directly impacting SMBs, according to US Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas.

Microsoft says the new enterprise-grade endpoint security solution for SMBs is rolling out worldwide to customers and IT partners who request access by signing up here.

After it reaches general availability, Defender for Business will be available directly from Microsoft and Microsoft Partner Cloud Solution Provider channels at $3 per user per month, through a standalone license or included within Microsoft 365 Business Premium.

“When you have a preview trial license, please visit Microsoft Defender for Business documentation for information about how to onboard devices, configure settings, and ongoing security management based on the preview scenarios.”

Microsoft 365 Lighthouse integration with Microsoft Defender for Business for IT service providers to view security events across customers, with additional capabilities coming.
