The features that are most valuable for us are cloud analytics from the APT (Advanced Threat Protection) engine or quarantine, deletion, and removal. Basically, they work by web engine. Simply, it is proactive in resolving potential issues. View full review »

The malware features are most valuable for us because if you have an application that attacks, it is defended. It gives you a prompt and doesn't allow you to launch that app. If there's an application that has suspicious malware you downloaded from the internet, it gives you a prompt to prevent the application from launching. Microsoft Windows Defender moves it to the recycle bin automatically. View full review »

One of the most valuable features of this product is the ability to "set it and forget it." I don't go in and make any changes to the settings. Another value add is the size of the user base, which is fairly large because it's a free MS product. I would imagine that it would be quite competitive since a blacklisting solution such as this is only as good as the threat intelligence it receives. I'm pretty sure that if the tool discovers something foreign and malicious it will upload that information back to Microsoft. The value of the tool is inherent within the size of the user base, which is fairly large because it's a free product by a trusted company. View full review »
