Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (formerly Microsoft Defender ATP)

We use it organization-wide. Defender has addressed malware, phishing, and viruses (trojans). This has significantly decreased our issues and potential exposure.
  • Great dashboard for the techs on the end of support
  • Provides good notifications for the user
  • Does a great job quarantining questionable emails that may have suspicious links.
  • Stop changing the product name - creates confusion at times
  • Able to identify potential issues with files and attachments
  • Provides details on the back end so tech staff can determine if it is a real threat, especially if someone decides to share the suspicious file
  • Notifications are very clear
  • The product has remediated risks
  • Raised confidence within upper management after dealing with a breach prior to moving to Defender
  • The amount of false positives are very low so it becomes credible
Very reliable with accuracy
Does not become a resource hog
