On-board Devices to Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (WDATP)

This blog describes steps required to on-board a device onto Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (WDATP), and how to verify the on-boarding was successfully.

On-boarding

  1. Sign into the Windows Defender ATP Portal here
    1. You can sign up for a trial here
    2. If you get an error logging in, make sure that you’re using an ‘inPrivate’ or ‘incognito’ window in your browser
  2. Select “On-board your first machine”
  3. Select your operating system version, deployment method and download the associated package. (In my case I’m on-boarding a Windows 10 device and using a Local Script – for large scale rollouts use one of the other deployment methods)
  4. Copy and extract the package onto your Windows 10 client
  5. From an elevated command prompt (i.e. run as administrator), run the extracted script
  6. The client has now been on-boarded to Windows Defender ATP

Verify

  1. Go back to the Windows Defender Security Centre and copy the detection test script onto the Windows 10 client
  2. On the Windows 10 client run the script from an elevated command prompt
  3. Return to the Windows Defender ATP dashboard, and open the Machines List
  4. After a few minutes your computer should appear in the list

 

Congratulations you have on-boarded a device onto Windows Defender ATP
