Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"We have an enterprise agreement so from my perspective, this is a product that ships with Windows and it is not priced standalone.""Microsoft Defender for Endpoint comes with Windows 10, and it's free. But for you to be able to manage it in the cloud and use the console, you need to have either an Office 365 E5 subscription or a Microsoft M365 subscription. You need to buy an extra license.""We are using the free version.""It is so expensive. It isn't cheaper than McAfee or other solutions.""It is within the same range as other products. It is not too expensive, and it is also not cheap. Its price can be better, but, well, it is Microsoft.""Most people don't realize M365/E5 licenses are an amazing deal. They think "Oh, it's expensive," and I'll ask, "Compared to what?" If you don't have it you will have to buy licenses for multiple products to fill the same security space that you would have gotten with the Microsoft product. Go figure out how much it costs you per product, per user, and then come back and tell me how things add up financially.""The subscription is part of Windows, so we don't have to pay anything extra for this product.""The solution is free and comes with Windows."

Overview

Next-generation antivirus (NGAV) is a new breed of software that was created to bridge the gap left by traditional antivirus.

What exactly constitutes NGAV in the cybersecurity industry is still unclear since there’s not a widely-accepted definition for the term. At a minimum, next-generation antivirus products need to go beyond performing signature-based detection while also incorporating some type of advanced technology.

Most NGAVs go beyond the use of indicators of compromise (IOCs) and metadata such as virus signatures, IP addresses, file hashes, and URLs. Using technologies like advanced data science, machine learning, artificial intelligence and data analytics, next-generation antivirus solutions look for patterns of behavior used by attackers to discover tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs).

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint is a complete endpoint security solution that delivers preventative protection, post-breach detection, automated investigation, and response. With Defender for Endpoint, you have:
