Allows for easy reporting of problems, valuable anti-phishing, and anti-malware support
Microsoft Defender for Office 365 lacks proactivity in assisting us with preparing for potential threats before they occur. While they employ a substantial amount of threat intelligence to preemptively prevent incidents, their effectiveness diminishes when it comes to delivering proactive threat intelligence alerts from Microsoft. Their focus primarily revolves around managing the internal environment. On the other hand, my other vendor, Check Point, along with my membership in MS-ISAC, supplements me with this type of information. The phishing and spam filters could use some improvement. It is adequate, but it doesn't match the quality of Proofpoint or Mimecast. However, it comes close in effectiveness. Plus, if we're obtaining it for free, investing in the other products seems impractical.

Quickly determines if a file is malicious or not, allowing us to create a copy of the static content without having to go through the discovery process
MetaDefender Email Security's multi-scanning capabilities for detecting malware are satisfactory. While the package offers eight, twelve, and sixteen scans, the premium solutions that include advanced anti-agents such as Trend Micro, McAfee, and CrowdStrike are costly. The basic mode of the package we sell only offers basic scanning and most people are likely unaware of the antivirus engine's name. While multi-scanning is a useful feature, we would prefer to see the basic version include more advanced scanning options. The DLP should be upgraded and has room for improvement. The central management center is not yet at the level of an enterprise. It has all the necessary components to create a standalone solution, and the local management center has everything required. However, when it comes to selling to larger enterprises, the central management center is still at a junior level. This means that there are many features, such as reporting based on login and connectivity to external systems, that require manual configuration rather than being included in a complete solution from a management perspective. The solution has many components, but it lacks a cohesive central focus for customers. It is, for example, a company that is an OT security company, but it suddenly shifted its focus to cloud security for secure access, which is confusing. The price of MetaDefender Email Security has room for improvement. The configuration has room for improvement.

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"Defender for Office 365 has helped eliminate having to look at multiple dashboards and that is the aspect I like most about it. It is simpler, effective, and convenient. The users like the process efficiency."
"The good part is that you don't have to configure it, which is very convenient."
"It also gives the vulnerability status according to the versions you have selected. Let's say you have Google Chrome. It mentions the versions it has, and it updates. Within two hours of an update, it is reflected in the dashboard. That's really nice to have."
"Microsoft Defender for Office 365 is a stable solution."
"Safe attachments, safe links, policies, and the ability to protect from zero-day threats are the most valuable features."
"The most valuable feature of Microsoft Defender for Office 365 is the ease of use."
"The risk level notifications are most valuable. We get to know what kind of intrusion or attack is there, and we can fix a problem on time."
"The most valuable feature of Microsoft Defender for Office 365 is data backups that we can provide through ticket requests."
"The sanitization is very good."
"The most valuable feature is called summary reconstruction which is used to deliver encrypted files to users."
"The most valuable feature of MetaDefender Email Security is the CDR. Customers purchase this solution specifically for data communication, as the other features can be obtained through other technologies that most customers already possess. Therefore, data communication serves as the foundation for the platform."
"It can effectively monitor outbound and inbound devices."
"I would rate the solution's stability at ten out of ten."
"The most valuable feature of Trend Micro Deep Discovery Email Inspector is the simple analysis of phishing emails."
"I like that it is very user-friendly and easy to install."
 

Cons

"Microsoft Defender for Office 365 must improve the overall management style, including the GUI. It also needs to change the filters so that it is easy to whitelist and blacklist data."
"The pre-sales cost calculations could be more transparent."
"We need a separate license and we don't know how to get the license that is required."
"We noticed that from time to time, Microsoft's stability does have problems. Sometimes the service goes up and down. Sometimes they change without prior notice."
"We are always looking for others tools to increase automation on tasks. There can be better integration with other solutions, such as PowerPoint and email."
"It would be better if it were more scalable. It depends on the architecture, but we would like to make it more scalable for both data centers."
"The custom alerts have to improve a lot."
"The UI needs to be more user-friendly."
"Although the number of AV engines is good, it could be better."
"They offer a feature called SmartLink neutralization. I have tried it before. It seemed to work most of the time; however, I had a few users for whom it just wouldn't work. Whenever they click on a link, it stays on the MetaDefender page, saying that it's scanning it and never moves forward."
"The DLP should be upgraded and has room for improvement."
"The product's feature for message processing and blocking devices for bulk emails needs improvement."
"Trend Micro Deep Discovery Email Inspector could improve by making it easier to use. Microsoft solutions are easier to use."
"I would like to be able to send emails to a specific sandbox. This is a feature I would like to see added to the next release."
"It could be more user-friendly, easier to install, and lighter on the network. I would say that for all products because you do not need technical expertise to take care of it. When you have a user-friendly solution, it makes it easier for the vendors or companies like us. We do not have to go to the client's site to attend to issues all the time. Because it is user-friendly, they can take care of it after some training."
