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 ;-)

The endpoint is the weakest link on the network
Since we put in all the best security measures protecting the data, the users/endpoints have access to data directly, hence businesses should have the same level of security measures on the endpoints.
