Onboarding devices to Microsoft Defender for endpoint

Jennifer 1,081 Reputation points

Hi team,

Could you please send me steps on how to manage security settings through Defender for endpoint. Also, we don't want to enroll devices to intune, we just want to manage them through Defender.

Thank you for your help.
