We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"I like the simplicity of this solution and the fact that it saves us time. The deployment was really straightforward and useful and I am impressed by the anti-virus endpoint detection and response offered by this solution.""The solution has exchange protection. It has a content control, device control, a firewall, and anti-malware as well. They are all quite valuable features for us.""The endpoint protection is the solution's most valuable feature."

"It's free. There is no additional cost. It's part of Windows.""Within its class I think, it has a high and decent detection rate.""It's really stable. I've used a lot of stuff, a lot of products, like ESET and Kaspersky. None of them are comparable with this one. This one is much better.""This is a very go, proactive solution to threat protection using advanced analysis.""I like the real-time protection features. Windows Defender will detect if there's a threat like a Trojan or something like that but Kaspersky lets it run normally.""Defender is integrated into the operating system. It's integrated with everything. You don't have to spend time analyzing what you have to do to be sure that the integration is okay between the security tool and all the other apps. This, from my point of view, is the main advantage.""The most valuable features are that it's easy to use and the updates are very simple.""The most valuable feature is that we can use the solution right out of the box without too much configuration."

Cons
"There are blurred lines between anti-virus and endpoint detection so I would say it can be confusing when you are considering buying this program. I would like to see that being explained better to the customer.""There needs to be better integration with the environment. Especially, for the active directory and also for keeping up with the changes from Microsoft. We use a lot of Microsoft OS. I have noted that sometimes they lag behind Microsoft updates. For example, when with Windows 10. I had some issues with deploying to Windows 10 because the solution was behind in updating their own services to match the Microsoft release.""The database needs improvement. It needs to be updated quite a bit."

"Microsoft Windows Defender doesn't have a game mode.""There's a lot of manual effort involved to configure what we need.""The end-user also cannot do some advanced actions on it. It's a little bit complicated for our end-user, so it needs to be simplified.""Updates are not coming out of preview quickly enough and it is holding back on the development of the product.""The system can always be simplified and have a better integration check. More detailed reports would be good. When it does the integrated check, it just shows if the system is okay but I want to know what happened.""The solution needs to improve its ransomware. It's not so good. It could also use some general performance optimization for the computers the solution operates on, to ensure it does not slow down the devices.""I would like to be able to set up any kind of protection I want in the firewall, any IP address or any number.""There's scanning going on that occasionally topples the memory, causing everything to freeze. This should be fixed."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"There's a yearly cost for licensing. For us, that comes to $1,400. There are no additional costs beyond the license itself."

"The product is free of charge and comes integrated into Windows.""The solution is free.""This product is included in the pricing for Windows.""It is affordable and comes in the Office 365 bundle.""I pay for it through the Windows Professional or Standard license. It is a one-time cost for me, and I use the same license.""This solution is part of Windows and comes included with it.""I got it with the Microsoft Windows license.""The solution is an open source version and was free with a paid version of Windows 10."
