Since then the solution within Microsoft has changed its name, but the most essential thing is that it has improved a lot and caught up with the most outstanding free antivirus.

AV-Test is a German expert testing center for security resolutions and publishes results from time to time.

It is one of the few of its kind that performs continuous tests on each and every one of the systems and those of us who have followed it for a decade have verified that it works quite independently.

A few years ago he rated Windows Defender as "the worst antivirus» of the free and did not recommend their use.

A few years later the situation changed.

The set examines the resolutions by evaluating three sets: suitability and level of detection, the load on the system and its ease of use.

As it assigns six maximum points for each, the resolutions have the possibility of achieving a maximum of 18 points.

AV-Test has analyzed 20 antiviruses at consumer levels for Windows and we must highlight the very, very high average score of all of them.

And Microsoft Defender's breakthrough by achieving the maximum score and rubbing shoulders with solutions from the industry's greats such as Kaspersky, Bitdefender or Eset.
