We use it for detecting any kind of breach or intrusion. It is not enabled for everyone because we have our own antivirus.

This solution is a mixed product. It can be used for email security and for information protection which is basically data loss prevention. Many people do this type of setup for DLP, but it is under Microsoft's naming convention, they call it Microsoft Information Protection(MIP).

We are using it with Laptops that go directly to the end-user. We used the Defender because it was already there.
