Threat Explorer is one of the features that I very much like because it is a real-time report that allows you to identify, analyze, and trace security attacks.

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.

The most valuable feature is the integration. It's a single console, so we don't have to switch around between multiple products. Another valuable feature is the ease of operations and maintenance.

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 good part is that you don't have to configure it, which is very convenient.

Hi community, I do not think this is an apples-to-apples comparison and am not finding much information about it.   I work as a Senior Finance Manager at a Healthcare company. I am being asked to provide a comparison document for these 2 products (BeyondTrust Endpoint Privilege Management and Microsoft Defender) which is difficult because they are such different solutions.   Can anyone help?...
