Why Choose Cynet Over Microsoft Defender

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint

Elite protection against today’s threats

Elite protection against today’s threats

In MITRE Engenuity ATT&CK Evaluation: Enterprise 2023 Edition Cynet achieved 100% Detection Visibility and 100% Analytic Coverage without configuration changes.

Elite protection against today’s threats

Microsoft only achieved 85% Detection Visibility and 78% Analytic Coverage in the 2023 Evaluation before configuration changes. Note that Microsoft made 39 configuration changes (modifications to its detection algorithms after failing to detect 21 threats) and was only then able to detect the threats upon retesting.

Visibility across multiple layers

Visibility across multiple layers

Cynet provides intuitive visibility into entities, not just events, allowing users to analyze endpoints, user and network-based threats.

Visibility across multiple layers

Microsoft Defender does not provide visibility into network-based threats, while visibility into user-based threats requires a separate license.

Optimized and automated

Optimized and automated

Cynet 360 AutoXDR delivers broad automation capabilities that minimize manual intervention and optimize the power of lean teams.

Optimized and automated

The Microsoft Defender for Endpoint suite consists of multiple, loosely integrated products that use separate consoles. Extensive and complicated settings, automation is limited to basic endpoint remediation actions.

Total cost of ownership

Total cost of ownership

Cynet’s offers simple, transparent pricing and a natively built platform that provides seamless software updates.

Total cost of ownership

With highly complex licensing and burdensome operations, Microsoft’s security solutions cost much more than the price to license them. Customers must absorb ongoing business disruptions and need additional staffing to handle Microsoft’s update cadence.
