A Review of Windows Defender

Microsoft’s built-in antivirus program that is now known as Windows Security, doesn’t require a subscription or installation and therefore offers many benefits for free. The product is highly regarded by the top AV testing labs around the world and provides an effective malware defense without affecting the performance of your system. It also includes a number of useful features, including security against ransomware and a password manager. It’s not equipped with some of more important features found in premium antivirus suites, and www.cyberkilla.com/top-antivirus-for-linux isn’t the most user-friendly.

Security against threats and viruses include the standard quick, complete and custom scans as well as an extensive offline scan mode to combat the most difficult to remove threats. The firewall and network module is easy to use, but it’s not as extensive than other options. The main issue, however it is that it only works on Windows devices which means if you want to protect an Android or Mac Mac or Android phone, you’ll need to find another option.

Family options include parental controls and the ability to monitor the health of the devices in your family. There’s a password manager which is hidden within the Edge browser that can be synced to other devices. The downside is that you aren’t able to manage the features from the app and must use a Web browser to access them.

As opposed to many other antivirus programs it doesn’t connect to the Windows kernel – a method that could open up new areas of attack for black hats and potentially destabilise your operating system. It also offers good behaviour detection and prevents users accidentally downloading malicious files.
