Microsoft have announced that the “App Governance add-on feature for Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps” will, from June 1 2023, be included in Defender for Cloud Apps at no additional cost.

This means organisations licensed with:

  • Microsoft 365 E5
  • Microsoft 365 E5 Security/Compliance
  • Microsoft 365 F5
  • EMS E5

will receive access to what is currently a paid additional license free of charge. It’s not very often that Microsoft (or any software publisher) do things this way round!

Microsoft say they will either proactively cancel subscriptions or do so upon receiving a ticket, depending on the licensing channel.

Microsoft announcement is here.
