Microsoft Defender for Office 365 licence question

Alextheonlyone 196 Reputation points


We have Microsoft 365 Business Standard licences for 43 users and we bought Microsoft Defender for Office 355 licences (plan 1) for 2 users two weeks ago.
Now it seems to us that all Defender plan 1 settings are available for our all 43 users. Am I right? We bought only 2 licences but the protection takes effect to all users?
For example, I set the Standard protection from the Preset security policies where I could choosen our company's domain for EOP and Defender, too. It means that the EOP + Defender protection takes effect to all users in this domain?

Thanks in advance,
