I use BitDefender Endpoint Protection on 200+ machines and servers. As I am about to renew the licence that is about 7000 USD / triennial, I was wondering is the antivirus necessary at all today on Windows 10?
EDIT: It said below I need to edit this question, so here gives: I am sysadmin for almost 20 years, and I need something measurable in AV protection comparison, especially from someone who is in similar position as I am. For example - if metrics say 99.4% vs 99.9% protection, that can mean much or nothing, depending on situation, so some explaining will help. The current situation is that it seems all AV programs are good, which makes the question is Windows Defender good enough from Enterprise point of view. Savings that could be made on this are huge, therefore this question must be considered. Over 6yr period AV programs costs about the same as Windows licence.
