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 we found most valuable is the AI functionality for maintaining endpoint security. This is very powerful.""The most valuable features of the solution include the endpoint navigation protection, the protection related to the EMS service, as well as the control and the cloud integration capabilities.""It is excellent endpoint protection for mobiles that does everything it says it will.""We've not had any issues with scalability. If an organization needs to expand, they can do so quite easily.""Their policy management, their cloud-based dashboard and user interface are very easy to navigate.""The initial setup is not complex at all. It's very straightforward."

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 »

"We need to know more details about how the virus interacted with the computer.""There needs to be more advanced analytics. It would make it a more powerful antivirus solution within the marketplace.""It would be nice if it had a feature for automatically generating reports on the client end for device status, security status and backup information.""Technical support is not the best. It's hard to get a hold of them if we need help. It's something that definitely needs improvement.""Webroot is very reactionary. It waits until the threat is active within memory to try and detect it. They need better pre-execution detection and prevention.""We need to have a stronger defense against CryptoLock and other attackers."

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.

"I can't recall the exact pricing, but I believe there is a monthly fee of $20-30 per user.""The solution is pretty cheap, actually. At our level, which is at 2,500 endpoints, we're paying 87 cents an agent per month.""The solution doesn't cost too much. It's about 30 Euros a year for each endpoint. It's pretty affordable for us and for many other companies."
