How does MS Defender ATP co-exist with Fire Eye

Copper Contributor

We are planning to implement MDATP in out infrastructure. we have another third party EDR solution is already running (FireEye). when we enable MDATP along with FireEye how does the EDR co-exist with FireEye for smooth running?

It will run side to side (even without MD AV active) but the endpoints will take a lot as 2 EDR's are now scanning

Hi @Thijs Lecomte,

Hope you're doing well and Thanks for your response. 

In that case it will impact the system performance, right?

other than that will there be any impact? Could you please explain me brief?  

As we have enabled MD AV & FireEye, is that recommended to enable MDATP? 

Also let me know the pros and cons for using MDATP and FireEye together.  

Thanks in Advance!


There will be performance impact yes.

What are you trying to achieve with running them side by side?

When we normally trail MDATP, we delete the old EDR so that MDATP doesn't have any impact at all
