Microsoft Defender for Endpoint Review

Stable threat protection with good support but it's expensive and has license restrictions

What is our primary use case?

We are using this solution for threat detection.

What is most valuable?

It shows us the risky sign-ins, and if a user's password has been compromised.

What needs improvement?

While have been using this solution for two years, I am not completely knowledgable. 

Due to license restrictions, we cannot use all of the features that are offered.

I am not sure if I will be using this product in the future because of the price.

I would like to see better pricing for this solution in the future.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with Microsoft Defender ATP for two years.

We are always using the latest version because it's on the cloud.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

With what we have seen, it's a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We are not using it widely because of the licensing limits.

We have three users only for Defender ATP, and if we are using the Microsoft ATA it applies to 500 users.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did not use another solution previous to Microsoft Defender ATP.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward. It's included with the Windows 10 Operating System.

There is no time taken for deployment as it is included with the operating system.

What about the implementation team?

We completed the installation ourselves.

We have 15 administrators to deploy and maintain this solution.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Microsoft Defender ATP is expensive.

What other advice do I have?

Because of my lack of knowledge or experience with the solutions full capacity, I cannot recommend this solution or offer any advice.

I would rate this solution a five out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
