    I am not sure how I can put this any more clearly, until we deployed this product we were swamped by phishing and spear-phishing attacks. After testing the free version, I had all the info I needed to sell this to my boss; the product ID'd users and it started blocking attempts. I walked in with a stack of 60+ blocks and told my boss, "we need this." She agreed to pay for it and overnight our phishing and spear-phishing attempts dropped by 75%+. From where we were, to where we are now, with the AI learning our users and our environment, these attempts have dropped by 90-95%+. An amazing product.

    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.

    Microsoft

    • 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

    Barracuda Networks, Inc.

    • Small company's don't really benefit from the AI
    • It would be great if some more rule intelligence could be added.

    • 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.

      Barracuda Networks, Inc.

      Support from Barracuda, in all departments, has been exceptional. They are quick to respond, they are attentive and they have been courteous. I have nothing but the best things to say about their staff. My only issue is that their ticketing system needs to better identify a cloud user versus a physical hardware user.

      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.

      We have been a long-standing customer of Barracuda Backups Cloud to Cloud and Main Backups so this was a logical extension of what we had already been doing and the positive results we had been receiving on the other products

      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

      Barracuda Networks, Inc.

      • Less administration time to check suspicious logins
      • AI works very well. No false positives
      • It is an addon. It improves your security but will not stop all threats

      • 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.
