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

Pros
"Ensures that I'm working with a product that gets updated regularly without me having to remember to do it. Since it's a Microsoft product, I'm confident that it requires a low use of system resources. The benefit of that being that my computer isn't constantly being drained.""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 feature I find most valuable is the advance search engine.""Panda Security solution has a feature to block any unknown process and that is what is best about it.""The patch management module is very important.""The most valuable feature is the web filter application control.""It's very easy to deploy, we don't have any problem or issues. It's most full automatic. It basically takes the assumption that everything is supposed to be a suspect; files, processes, URL accesses, and so on.""Their remote management (RMM) is very good.""The protection from malware is the most important feature. It has some endpoint information about the vehicle of the virus, malware, etc. It is also stable and easy to install, and they also provide good technical support.""The product so far has been good at protecting us. We haven't faced a breach."

Cons
"It would be nice to have a paid upgrade that would provide additional screening of the day-to-day activities.""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."

More Microsoft Defender Antivirus Cons »

"I would like to see better data protection.""They need to expand their offering of add-ons to enhance capabilities further.""Improvements could be made in terms of how the reporting is structured.""The Linux installation is performed on the command line and they need a package installer for that operating system.""The gap between the two final conclusions is a problem, whether or not a file is known to be malware or is known to be safe.""The only part I really don't use as much is their firewall. It's a bit superfluous. Most people have their own firewall in place, so they don't really need that part portion of the solution.""It needs some improvements in the DNS security feature. Currently, it does not have full DNS security. It only has semi-DNS security, which can be improved. It is an important feature for us, and it would be really good if they can improve the DNS security feature. Our group has some plans to change to Cisco AMP, which has features such as DNS, Umbrella. We are trying to learn about Cisco AMP and compare it with Panda.""Occasionally, we suffer from little bugs that give us the wrong message."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

More Microsoft Defender Antivirus Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Our licensing fee is 1M Euro per month, so it is about 80 Euro's per user.""Panda is cloud-only and comes at a reasonable cost. It is a set price per seat.""The price of this solution depends on the number of licenses that you are purchasing.""The licensing is subscription-based and priced well compared to other endpoint security solutions.""The licensing costs are not too high. We pay about 20 Euros a year. It's a reasonable amount to pay."
