Microsoft Windows Defender Review

Few false positives and comes bundled with the operating system, but it needs a comprehensive dashboard

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use is for protection against malware.

What is most valuable?

What I like best is that it is part of the operating system, as opposed to a third-party application.

The fact that it's from Microsoft, you don't have many false positives, unlike products from other vendors might have.

Updates occur frequently throughout the day.

What needs improvement?

I would like to have a dashboard that shows an overview of the results for the enterprise.

For how long have I used the solution?

We just began using Windows Defender in the company.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have premium support, which is part of our enterprise agreement with Microsoft.

How was the initial setup?

The deployment takes place with the operating system, so it was not complex.

What about the implementation team?

We used a Microsoft consultant to assist with our implementation.

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

This product is included in the pricing for Windows.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
