      “customers moving to Windows 10 can add Windows Defender ATP Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) functionality to their Windows 7, and Windows 8.1 devices”

      What does this actually mean – only Enterprise and only if there are Windows 10 devices in the same network?

      Interesting questions here:

      Does that mean that I need to pay an E5 license for the endpoints, send the
      security logs to Azure and pay the Azure Security center as well?

      https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/security-center/
      
      I'm waiting for the pricing model.
      Will it be ?
      https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/cloud-platform/cloud-app-security
      Cloud App Security is available at $3.50 per user per month estimated
      retail price.

      + $15 / node / month and less than 500 MB data uploaded per day /node
