Not every company uses Microsoft Intune or System Center, but this does not mean that tools such as Microsoft Defender for Endpoint cannot be used. Only the distribution of the corresponding onboarding packages is not necessarily as simple as when, for example, Microsoft Intune is in use.
Many tasks have to be done manually. To make onboarding easier, however, I have written a small script for this purpose, which I would like to present to you here.
Before we can start with it, however, some tasks have to be prepared:
- Go to the Microsoft 365 Defender portal (https://security.microsoft.com), and sign in.
- In the navigation pane, choose Settings > Endpoints, and then under Device management, choose Onboarding.
- Select an operating system, such as Windows 10 or 11, and then, in the Deployment method section, choose Local script.
- Select Download onboarding package
(More information about that task you can find here.)
You can download my PowerShell script as usual on my
