The solution comes as a part of Windows 10 and it is covered under its license.

There isn't really a licensing process. The solution was pre-installed by default. It simply comes with Microsoft Windows.

This is an expensive product and licensing for all Microsoft products is a big issue. However, Volume Licensing and Educational Licensing are good options to decrease the cost.

The product pricing is definitely in the same range as other products. It's therefore not too expensive, however, it's also not too cheap. It could be better, however, it's Microsoft and they can pretty much set their pricing how they like.

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.

I think that the product is affordable. At least it was for me. It is part of the Office 365 package.

The solution is free. Once a user downloads Windows 10, they automatically get the product.

The cost is per-user. We pay more for an Enterprise license.

You have a standard licensing fee. As far as I know, there are no other costs above and beyond this.

It's free because it comes with Windows. It's a free solution. We're not paying any license. That's why it's better than Bitdefender, McAfee, or Norton. It's free.
