We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"What I like the most about this solution is the complexity. It covers a lot of areas, unlike other solutions."
"Compared to similar solutions, it's quite scalable. You just need to add more storage to scale-up."
"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."
"Automatic scanning and cleaning of viruses is the best and most valuable feature helping this tool to thrive. If any viruses are found, they are cleaned automatically."
"We have liked the fact that it comes with Microsoft Windows 10 and it is constantly updated with all new virus definitions. It is also updated with new security features on a regular basis."
"It's absolutely free to use."
"The fact that it's from Microsoft, you don't have many false positives, unlike products from other vendors might have."
"The patch management is very easy, as it can be done automatically or added to a schedule."
"Provides good vulnerability assessment."
"The reports in the endpoint area of Elevate can be improved."
"Configuration, in terms of building the collector and communicating with endpoints, is complex."
"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."
"With increase of cyber threats and cybersecurity issues, I would recommend that the product be developed like an AI product with more features which can counter any threat in the coming eras."
"There is no behavior analytics for devices and endpoints. There is no behavior-based protection."
"The anti-ransomware features need to be improved upon."
"I would like to have a dashboard that shows an overview of the results for the enterprise."
"I would like to see better integration with their other security products to give better visibility from a higher level."
"The GUI is very complex and could be more user friendly."
"It's quite expensive but we can customize it to reduce the price."
"The product is free of charge and comes integrated into Windows."
"The solution is free."
"This product is included in the pricing for Windows."
"If you don't purchase the advanced threat protection then there is no additional charge."
"It is affordable and comes in the Office 365 bundle."
"Microsoft Defender ATP is expensive."
"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."
"When compared with other vendors, the pricing is very high."
