Microsoft Defender for Endpoint comes with Windows 10, and it's free. But for you to be able to manage it in the cloud and use the console, you need to have either an Office 365 E5 subscription or a Microsoft M365 subscription. You need to buy an extra license.
We already use Microsoft solutions and I found it cheaper to purchase the bundle, which includes Defender. By including the antivirus in the bundle, it makes it a little cheaper for us. If you purchase it outside of the bundle, it is a little bit expensive. When you want the central administration functionality, it tends to be more expensive. The normal, standalone model is not expensive, but the enterprise model that includes the bundle with email and some web protection, is a bit more expensive.
Microsoft Defender is an expensive product in my country.
It provides peace of mind with really good pricing. It won't be upsetting my budgets or anything like that.
We don't have an issue with the price. We have a bundle where the price includes all Microsoft products. This is an area that I am not dealing with. I don't have all of the information.
Licensing options vary. Some customers buy it as an enterprise agreement and pay yearly. Others buy it as a CSP, so they pay per month. It completely depends on the customer's needs.
Currently, for us, Windows Defender is free with the purchase of Windows Server. Pricing is an important point for us when we are looking at the competitors of this solution. If we choose to go with another vendor, we will have to pay some license fees.
It is within the same range as other products. It is not too expensive, and it is also not cheap. Its price can be better, but, well, it is Microsoft.
There is a free version of Windows Defender, although the paid version has EDR functionality. We sell this product as part of Office 365 and it is not expensive.
When compared with other vendors, the pricing is very high. There are several other features that can be integrated with Microsoft Defender ATP such as EDR. But, it doesn't already come integrated with ATP. It's available at an additional cost. If you want the EDR feature, you would have to purchase an E-file license. The cost is three times higher to have more productivity with the dashboard.
Microsoft Defender ATP is expensive.
We are using the version that is included with Windows 10. If you don't purchase the advanced threat protection then there is no additional charge.
