    AWS Config

    It's really good if your infrastructure services is all in AWS, that means everything could be audited and monitored using AWS config. You also can create alarms to notify you or your team about any changes on your AWS resources which is very useful to prevent abuse if you have a fairly large team. It's also very useful whenever some third party wants to audit your AWS resources, if you have a fairly comprehensive AWS config configured, the auditing process will be easy since they only need to look at your AWS config setup.

    Microsoft Defender for Endpoint

    Small or large organizations will benefit from using MDE. They need to provide a way to buy MDE as a standalone add-on product not only make it a bundled feature in Microsoft 365 E5. I wish it had the ability to deploy updates to 3rd party apps when the vulnerability scanner discovers a vulnerability. Currently, I have to use a 3rd party tool to address this gap.

    Pros

    AWS Config

    • The ability to track changes in AWS is paramount, AWS config allows you to do this
    • Allows the auditing of an AWS account
    • Can view history of an account that has AWS config enabled

    Microsoft Defender for Endpoint

    • It is great at proactively monitoring threats across the network. It works seamlessly with the client to monitor individual user computers, and it has a good real-time scanning engine.
    • On the client side, Windows Defender doesn't require a whole lot of system resources to run, nor will it create unnessary slowdowns of a computer, even while scanning for threats

    Cons

    AWS Config

    • It's only AWS, no third party.
    • Not the most intuitive interface, but with a little getting used to it is OK.

    Microsoft Defender for Endpoint

    • Virus detection rates are below competitors.
    • Too many notifications that end up bothering.
    • Do not ask every time if you should send reports to Microsoft.

    Would rate lower for other workloads but for AWS workloads its simple to set up, cost effective and customisable. Primary use case is compliance from a governance perspective.

    Microsoft Defender for Endpoint 8.9
    Based on 9 answers
    Every time I've had a question or a problem, I was able to get it addressed quickly. Microsoft has a huge database for ATP support, and it has contained 90% of what I have looked for. It was a lifesaver during initial setup.

    Alternatives Considered

    AWS Config

    I do not know or have used any other product in AWS cloud space that matches what AWS Config provides. We have some custom built monitoring and governance, however that is there because AWS Config does not provide it currently.

    Microsoft Defender for Endpoint

    Defender works better for my org. This may depend on your ecosystem, however for me, Defender is a clear winner. I like Defender's ability to utilize multiple sensors and data points to detect possible breaches. I like the built-in EDR functionality. I do not need to purchase a separate EDR software anymore. I really like the vulnerability management. it has enabled our SOC team to view multiple security-related sensors from a single portal.

    Return on Investment

    AWS Config

    • A "Big Fish" company that is more concerned about the security of their data came aboard with us more easily since they trust us with the AWS config setup
    • Less time to debug or finding out issue on infrastructure whenever it happens
    • Easy and fast to roll back whenever changes that caused issues happen

    Microsoft Defender for Endpoint

    • There is definitely a piece of mind provided when you know that your system will not get compromised because of malware and viruses.
    • The fact that I don't have to spend money in the first place means that I can spend money on other more important things that do require it.
