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
