Dynamics 365 Licensing Guide

There’s an updated (July 2020) Dynamics 365 Licensing Guide.

The main update is for the two new Fraud Protection capabilities – Account Protection and Loss Protection.

New capabilities for Dynamics 365 Fraud Protection

Microsoft announce two new capabilities for Dynamics 365 Fraud Protection: the Account Protection capability safeguards user accounts by combating fake account creation, account takeover, and fraudulent account access, and the Loss Prevention capability helps to mitigate losses by identifying potential fraud on returns and discounts. This adds to the original Purchase Protection capability which protects online revenue by improving the acceptance rate of commerce transactions.

From a licensing perspective, organisations choose their primary capability which also includes transactions for the other capabilities. For example, the Account Protection licence includes 100,000 Account Protection transactions, as well as 2,000 Purchase Protection transactions and 4,000 Loss Prevention transactions. Each of the primary capabilities costs $1,000 per month, and then additional transactions may be added in increments of $150 if the number of total transactions is below a certain amount (which is different for each capability), and $100 if it’s more.

You can find the original announcement here: https://bit.ly/301aLbJ and the Dynamics 365 Licensing Guide gives more details on the amount of transactions included for each of the capabilities and their add-ons. Find the July 2020 Licensing Guide here: https://bit.ly/32WlZjp.
