Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "I got it with the Microsoft Windows license."
  • "It is within the same range as other products. It is not too expensive, and it is also not cheap. Its price can be better, but, well, it is Microsoft."
  • "Currently, for us, Windows Defender is free with the purchase of Windows Server. Pricing is an important point for us when we are looking at the competitors of this solution. If we choose to go with another vendor, we will have to pay some license fees."
  • "The solution is an open source version and was free with a paid version of Windows 10."
  • "This is an expensive product and licensing for all Microsoft products is a big issue."
  • "Licensing options vary. Some customers buy it as an enterprise agreement and pay yearly. Others buy it as a CSP, so they pay per month. It completely depends on the customer's needs."
  • "It's included with the Windows Operating System, I don't pay for any licensing fees."
  • "You need a license to use this solution."
