Cylance Smart Antivirus

It is a good and smart tool not only for small firms but
also for large ones. The speed of action as well as the smooth working of this
tool makes this tool worth buying. We have been using it for a long time, and we haven’t encountered any threat so far. However, when it comes to its pricing, it
is not so suitable for us and needs to be less.

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

It would be well suited in an environment where most all your endpoints are Windows-based computers, as Windows Defender is already built into the operating system, so there is no client to have to worry about installing. It also will make the management of endpoints easier on the server side, if most all machines are Windows-based.It might be less of ideal solution if a company/organization were looking for something more robust, or had a lot more features/configuration settings. It also might be less ideal for a company/organization that was looking for a product that didn't have a high detection rate of false positives

Cons

Cylance Smart Antivirus

  • Its subscription charges need to be declined.
  • We had faced some bugs but they get resolved with the new update.
  • There is little information and details related to the threats and I think this needs to be improved.

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

  • Deployment: We've had some issues deploying, especially outside of the Windows environment.
  • Offboarding: There is currently no way to delete a computer. They disappear over time. We even renamed a computer, and it kept both the old and new name in there. Eventually, the older machines do go away, but there is no manual way to do this at the moment.

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP) 8.0
Based on 8 answers
I gave it a 7 out of 10 as I feel that there is still a lot of room for improvement. I remember how back in the day the software was looked down upon because of it being an unreliable and inefficient antivirus. But, Microsoft has really put in the hard work and made it worthy for it to be comparable to all the other security services out there.

Alternatives Considered

Cylance Smart Antivirus

We switched to Cylance Smart Antivirus almost a year ago. Before that, we were using Avast Business Antivirus which was kind of an absurd experience for us. First of
all Avast Business Antivirus was a heavyweight software, and as a repercussion, it interrupted our
system’s normal workings. Because of that, we had to pay a high cost as we
were not able to do anything else while scanning.

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

MS ATP is lower on system resources and enables us to stretch out our endpoint hardware for an additional year. Also, MS ATP being an MS product fits in very nicely into MS remote management software and MS operating system. We have had little to no issues when hotfixes and roll updates are deployed, unlike 3rd party AV providers that we had experience with in the past.

Return on Investment

Cylance Smart Antivirus

  • Our whole system and the entire organization feel very safe.
  • No virus, malware, or even ransomware can enter our systems .
  • It works in silence and isn’t a burden on our systems.

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

  • A positive impact has been to increase productivity for IT staff, as it saves them time from having to install/configure clients on every endpoint.
  • Another positive impact has been on the user/client side, as it helps the user to increase their productivity with working on their computer, as the Windows Defender client uses little resources to run on the system, and has a tendecy to not slowdown systems
