In a nutshell, Microsoft as most of its products tend to be behind the leaders and ATP is no exception, we used both and stayed with Falcon. With ATP you think you are protected until you deploy Falcon, or any other NGAV, and realize you were blind. We also used Cylance and still better than MS ATP.

A few reasons why Falcon: Time response, real AI engine no signatures, support, easy to manage, one of the most well-organized vendors we've worked with, one of my favorites: if you don't have the --expertise-- and human power in-house they offer a fully managed insured ($1M) solution that monitors all the way to remediation 24x7 in less than 30min and without user intervention or interruption. Last, network containment at the click of a button in real-time with the ability to still remediate remotely

SentinelOne is my recommended solution.


The SentinelOne Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP) unifies prevention, detection, and response in a single purpose-built agent, powered by machine learning and automation. It is not reliant on hash signatures or an internet connection. SentinelOne provides prevention and detection of attacks across all major vectors and rapid elimination of threats with a fully automated real-time response without human intervention.


SentinelOne has not been breached and offers upto $1,000,000 warranty if it cannot roll back a ransomware attack.


Please contact me at CyberSec@global.co.za for more information, a demonstration, or a quote.


Your reputation and your company's cyber security is in your hands - make an informed decision.

Hi community, I work as an IT Security person at a large Logistics company. At the moment, I'm researching these 2 products for my organization: Microsoft Defender for Endpoint and Cortex XDR by Palo Alto Networks. Most comparisons and reviews I found were done in late 2021 and early 2022. As of now, considering all Microsoft Updates on their Defender, which product would you prefer to use?...

I have not used Microsoft Defender and only used Cortex XDR by Palo Alto Networks. My experience with Cortex is not good as you need to whitelist each and every exe file of each adn every computer. My recommendation for you is to go for Cynet360 MDR which is far better than Cortex in terms of auto detection and remediation. You will get genuine alert.

I would go for the one with the best independent threat intelligence, a platform that allows you to change, add, move IT and Security infrastructure without impacting your security platform.  I would also place a close attention to storage costs, service levels and the number of resources providing human intelligence on top of machine intelligence for investigation and incident response, all in one platform.  But I am biased ;-)

I don't. I prefer Cynet to both of them.
