Confused about Microsoft Defender on Different Subscriptions

I am confused about Microsoft Defender in the Different MS 365 Subscriptions

1) Is the Core Microsoft Defender app in all the subscriptions the same product and does it offer exactly the same functionality? e.g What's the difference between the builtin Windows Defender AV in Windows 10 and the Defender offered in MS365 Business Premium or Defender ATP subscription?
2) Is there a difference in the Defender offering in MS 365 Business Premium and Microsoft Defender for Endpoint? Can I install it on other devices such as my mobile phone? I have noticed that in one offering I can access it via:

Basically I am looking for a full Solution for SMBs which include antivirus software.


Windows 10 Security
Windows 10 Security
Windows 10: A Microsoft operating system that runs on personal computers and tablets.Security: The precautions taken to guard against crime, attack, sabotage, espionage, or another threat.
