Defender is easy to implement a base level across an organization, but can be difficult to completely tune and manage. It is well-worth the effort and makes a great overall solution. It is also very good and easy to setup for home users. Plus, it is free for home users using Microsoft operating systems.

The first time I tried to onboard my macOS endpoints to MDE I struggled for quite a bit. I had to reach out to Microsoft's MDE support team. The tech was very helpful in walking me through the steps during a screen share session

in an overall protection sentinelone is providing better protection for us, but as it comes with subscription's limitation, we have to be really careful in managing the licenses, the MS Defender for endpoint is providing us a decent protection which we are not complaining about, why we chose them ? as mentioned, this is coming with our subscription
