Windows Defender Achieves ‘Best Antivirus’ Status

An anonymous reader quotes a report from PC Magazine: As Softpedia reports, the independent IT security institute AV-TEST spent May and June continuously evaluating 20 home user security products using their default settings to see which offered the best protection. Only four of those products achieved a top score, and one of them was Windows Defender. The other three are F-Secure SAFE 17, Kaspersky Internet Security 19.0, and Norton Security 22.17. The big difference between these and Windows Defender is the fact Microsoft includes Windows Defender for free with Windows 10, where as the others require a paid subscription to continue being fully-functional. “Of the other products evaluated, Webroot SecureAnywhere 9.0 came last,” adds PC Magazine. “Those just missing out on the top score while still earning an AV-TEST ‘Top Product’ award include Avast Free AntiVirus 19.5, AVG Internet Security 19.5, Bitdefender Internet Security 23.0, Trend Micro Internet Security 15.0, and VIPRE AdvancedSecurity 11.0.”
