Pricing and Cost Advice
"The pricing and licensing are reasonable. The cost of AMP for Endpoints is inline with all the other software that has a monthly endpoint cost. It might be a little bit higher than other antivirus type products, but we're only talking about a dollar a month per user. I don't see that cost as being an issue if it's going to give us the confidence and security that we're looking for. We have had a lot of success and happiness with what we're using, so there's no point in changing.""Our company was very happy with the price of Cisco AMP. It was about a third of what we were paying for System Center Endpoint Protection.""There are a couple of different consumption models: Pay up front, or if you have an enterprise agreement, you can do a monthly thing. Check your licensing possibilities and see what's best for your organization.""The visibility that we have into the endpoint and the forensics that we're able to collect give us value for the price. This is not an overly expensive solution, considering all the things that are provided. You get great performance and value for the cost.""In our case, it is a straightforward annual payment through our Enterprise Agreement.""We have a license for 3,000 users and if we get up to 3,100 users, it doesn't stop working, but on the next renewal date you're supposed to go in there and add that extra 100 licenses. It's really good that they let you grow and expand and then pay for it. Sometimes, with other products, you overuse a license and they just don't work.""Licensing fees are on a yearly basis and I am happy with the pricing.""There is also the Cisco annual subscription plus my management time in terms of what I do with the Cisco product. I spend a minimal amount of time on it though, just rolling out updates as they need them and monitoring the console a couple of times a day to ensure nothing is out of control. Cost-wise, we are quite happy with it."

"It is free. It is included in Windows 10.""The solution comes as a part of Windows 10 and it is covered under its license.""Its price is fair. It has approximately the same price as the other products such as Kaspersky. It is much cheaper than Malwarebytes.""As we operate in the educational sector, we are eligible for an educational discount.""It's included with the Windows Operating System, I don't pay for any licensing fees.""You just pay Windows 10 prices, then you have antivirus software. As a price comparison, Defender's costs are very low.""I got it with the Microsoft Windows license.""You don't need to worry about the renewal and purchase of antivirus products. It is bundled with Windows 10, so you don't need to worry about separately purchasing any antiviruses."
