Let’s discuss the Intune MDE Onboarded Devices Count Report is Wrong. Microsoft recently announced an issue where devices onboarded to Microsoft Defender for Endpoint are not properly reflected in the Microsoft Intune Admin Center.
Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (MDE) is an enterprise endpoint security platform. Intune integrates with MDE to support end-to-end device management. Integrating Microsoft Defender for Endpoint with Intune offers organizations a powerful combination for managing security workflows.
Usually, MDE provides accurate counts of devices; at the moment, a problem with Microsoft is causing this inaccurate counting. This alert is a reporting bug and does not impact onboarding to Defender for Endpoint.
Microsoft identified a bug that is the reason for the incorrect count for the number of devices to Defender. As a result, MDE is not properly reflected in the Microsoft Intune admin center report for devices with/without the Defender for Endpoint sensor.
