We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The solutions price is fair for what they offer."
  • "The price could be better. Normally, the costs depend on the country you're located in for the license. When we were in the initial stage, we went with the E5 license they call premium standard. It cost us around $5.20 per month for four users."
  • "The price of the solution is high compared to others and we have lost some customers because of it."
  • "Microsoft is not competitive with the pricing of the solution. The competitors are able to offer lower discounts. The price of the solution is higher."
  • "We have a lot of problems in Latin America regarding the price of Microsoft 365 Defender, because the relationship between dollars and the money of the different countries, it's is a lot. Many customers that have small businesses say that they would like the solution but it is too expensive. However, large companies do not find the cost an issue."
  • "The most valuable licensing option is expensive, so pricing could be improved. Licensing options for this solution also need to be consolidated, because they frequently change."
  • "Microsoft should provide lower-level licensing options. They should do it in such a way that even an individual could purchase a license, and it should be entirely flexible."
  • "They have moved from a licensing model to pay-per-use... The question is: What happens if, for any reason, there's not enough budget to accept this model? That could be a great problem."

    The Gurucul XDR solution collects a wide variety of telemetry, correlation, and analysis of indicators of compromise for high-fidelity attack detection, prioritized investigation, and risk driven response. With Gurucul Open XDR technology, Security Operations Centers (SOCs) of varying skills and size gain the necessary visibility, context, and automation to identify attack campaigns in real-time and prevent damage within minutes.

    Mandiant Advantage is a multi-vendor XDR platform that provides security teams of all sizes with frontline intelligence. Mandiant Advantage aims to speed up operational as well as strategic security and risk decision making. Mandiant Advantage provides security teams with an early knowledge advantage through the Mandiant Intel Grid, which provides platform modules with current and relevant threat data and analysis capabilities. Organizations are better protected from cyber attacks and more confident in their readiness when they have access to continuous security validation, detection, and response.

    Mandiant Advantage Features

    Mandiant Advantage has many valuable key features. Some of the most useful ones include:

    • Threat intelligence: Front-line intelligence that enables a defender to be aware of the strategies and tactics that opponents are employing at this moment. Organizations will be able to contextualize, prioritize, and implement the most pertinent new intelligence by fusing ASM and threat intelligence.
    • Security validation: This allows security teams to optimize, rationalize, and prioritize their security activities from a budget and manpower viewpoint. It measures the effectiveness of security controls applied within an organization. Controls can be evaluated against the most recent TTPs actively used by threat actors by incorporating information into the security validation procedure. Organizations can determine whether their security policies are successfully thwarting or detecting attacks against their external attack surface by integrating ASM and security validation.
    • Automated Defense: In order to fuel SOC event/alert correlation and triage, Automated Defense combines knowledge and intelligence with machine learning. This is similar to integrating a machine-based Mandiant analyst into your security program. By merging ASM and Automated Defense, more context is given to Automated Defense, enhancing the relevance and usefulness of alarms.
    • Attack surface management: ASM offers a continuous, scalable method for locating hundreds of different asset and exposure types within on-premises, cloud, and SaaS application environments. In addition to assets being found, technologies in use are also identified, and vulnerabilities are confirmed rather than just speculated. Cyber defenders are able to effectively and efficiently limit their external exposures by integrating the full Mandiant Advantage suite into ASM, which prioritizes and validates the information regarding the attack surface.

    Mandiant Advantage Benefits

    There are many benefits to implementing Mandiant Advantage. Some of the biggest advantages the solution offers include:

    • Boost your current security investments: No matter what security policies you have implemented, you may improve your security capabilities by automating Mandiant's expertise as a virtual extension of your team.
    • Improve your visibility and priority: View the threats Mandiant is continuously monitoring across your attack surface and internal controls in order to prioritize and drive focus.
    • Flexible deployment: Depending on your needs, Mandiant Advantage can be supplied as technology, along with support, or as a fully managed contract.
    • Scale efficiently: Without the need for time-consuming and expensive human labor, a SaaS-based strategy deploys in hours, scales with your environment, and provides constant expert analysis.
