Easy to set up with no configuration required, and the support is good

What is our primary use case?

We are using it with Laptops that go directly to the end-user. We used the Defender because it was already there.

Pros and Cons

  • "The good part is that you don't have to configure it, which is very convenient."
  • "We need a separate license and we don't know how to get the license that is required."

What other advice do I have?

I feel Defender is a product that is good enough, especially for small to medium-size businesses. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
