AV-Test result that Microsoft Windows Defender is a very good anti-virus software

1 min read

Microsoft has launched Windows Defender, a free anti-virus software, for a long time, and it seems that this security mechanism is very successful. Although there are many companies other than Microsoft that sell anti-virus software, this software usually follows a paid subscription-based model. The good news is that even from a technical point of view, users may not need to pay for anti-virus software, because the latest report from AV-Test has determined that Windows Defender is the best anti-virus software at the level.

The AV-Test independent lab tests various anti-viruses based on certain parameters and publishes the results. The report is updated every two months, using the same three parameters. Windows Defender has been at the top of the list for a long time, and this anti-virus software, which does not cost a fee, has achieved excellent results in terms of protection, performance, and usability.

Microsoft quickly announced this achievement externally, and Brad Anderson, vice president of Microsoft 365, quickly forwarded the results of AV-Test.
