Is Microsoft Defender Enough?

Prevent today’s most advanced attacks, including ransomware and fileless malware, with the combination of Microsoft Defender and Deep Instinct.

Closing the Gap

The power to prevent, the intelligence to quickly respond.

Deep Instinct's prevention-first approach to stopping unknown threats and ransomware, combined with Microsoft Defender’s investigation, forensics, and incident response capabilities, deliver a more complete solution for protecting endpoints against modern cyber threats.

 

Benefit #01

Reduce the risk of ransomware and unknown attacks

One of the biggest threats organizations face today is ransomware. Deep Instinct prevents ransomware attacks from executing in <20ms. Together, Microsoft Defender + Deep Instinct reduce your risk, both online and offline, and lower your reliance on cloud-based intelligence.

Benefit #02

Respond to threats faster & improve ROI

Machine learning-based solutions, like Microsoft Defender, are reactive, waiting until a threat executes to stop it. In the meantime, users may be interacting with malicious files. Deep Instinct provides proactive prevention, pre-execution, and when deployed with Microsoft Defender you get faster responses to threats with reduced complexity – and a combined return on investment of over 400%.

Benefit #03

Optimize security operations

Our most precious resource is people, who are difficult to recruit and to retain. Deep Instinct’s <0.1% false positive rate guarantees only high-fidelity alerts are sent to Microsoft Defender. The result? Your team’s workload is reduced, and they have more time to focus on the most critical and interesting work, improving your overall operations.

Deep Instinct

Proactive Deep Learning

Accurately prevents >99% of unknown threats and reduces false positives to <0.1%
Microsoft Defender

Reactive Machine Learning

Relies on heuristics and behavioral analysis delaying decisions until after the threat has executed
Better Together

 

Active threats are effectively eliminated through prevention and complete attack chain visibility
Speed
Deep Instinct

Autonomous

Quickly makes malicious vs benign decisions on the local endpoint without cloud and threat intel feeds
Microsoft Defender

Cloud-dependent

Requires cloud-based engines for reputation and threat intel resulting in latency and delayed decisions
Better Together

 

Less reliance on cloud expedites malicious vs benign decisions to prevent known & unknown threats early in the attack lifecycle
Footprint
Deep Instinct

Low

Consumes <1% CPU while actively preventing unknown threats
Microsoft Defender

High

Known for heavy system footprint (>20%) while processing malware
Better Together

 

CPU consumption goes down and overall resource requirements are reduced
Connectivity
Deep Instinct

Offline

Protect systems even while offline
Microsoft Defender

Online only

Must be connected to provide services
Better Together

 

Offline protection of known and unknown threats closes connectivity gap and improves efficacy 
Complexity
Deep Instinct

Low

Early prevention reduces raw telemetry 
Microsoft Defender

High

Presents comprehensive attack data that takes time to break down 
Better Together

 

Event management is simplified by reducing the amount of attack data to sift through
Investigation
Deep Instinct

High Fidelity

Sends only high-fidelity prevented events and saves the SOC team time with fewer overall alerts
Microsoft Defender

Automated

Correlates attack data, reveals campaigns, and automates responses
Better Together

 

Investigation and response times are vastly improved, and the associated costs are lowered

Stop Ransomware Pre-execution.

Avoid data exfiltration and extortion demands

Deep Instinct is Immune to Adversarial AI

Prevent Unknown Threats.

Lower downstream cost for Incident Response & Remediation

Improve SecOps.

“...Deep Instinct handled many near zero-day threats that had been in the wild a much shorter time than Deep Instinct's detection engine's release date. It simply didn't matter to Deep Instinct. It found them all, and stopped them at pre-execution...”
