The biggest advantage over their relationship is the Windows Defender and how it doesn't affect the performance of the computer as most other antiviruses do. Even when you are doing an upgrade, the computer will counteract with the same performance. On the other hand, it does not detect the same amount of virus as its competitors.

As compared to some of the other products we have used in our organization over the years, Windows Defender has been a lot better at not using a lot of system resources when running on the clients. A lot of other commercial threat protection products on the market today, tend to use more system resources while running on a client, and can even slowdown users computers to the point that it would be hard for them to utilize for other things, especially while system scans are running.

Antivirus/malware detection rates have improved a lot over the years with Windows Defender. It used to be they fell behind in detection rates, but not so anymore. The big thing that must be approved upon is the detection of false positives, which other products may have an edge over them in this regard

Panda Adaptive Defense, in combination with Panda Systems Management, was a pretty big and powerful suite of AV software. However, the AV is pretty traditional, all things considered. ATP will always have a slight advantage due to its ability to seamlessly integrate with the Windows OS.

We also used to use Kaseya to get visibility on stuff like patches, etc. To be honest, most of the data we can get from ATP is sufficient, and another product like that, or Panda Systems Management, seems so close to redundant, bar one or two small features.

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.
