A Case for Windows Defender: Triad of Perfect Scores in AV-Test

Here's a strange thing: a case for a free, bundled software solution being better (in the metrics concerned and evaluated) than paid, third-party counterparts. We're writing of none other than Microsoft's own Windows Defender suite, which is bundled with Windows and offers a security solution integrated into your OS. While the 'paid is always better' philosophy has been proven wrong time and again and isn't that much of a powerhouse behind users' thought process anymore, the fact is that Windows Defender has somewhat been taken for granted as an 'undesirability' in users' computers. However, a comparison made by AV-Test, which pits many of the available cybersecurity solutions available on the market, has found Microsoft's Windows Defender to be worthy of a triad of perfect scores.

De resultaten voor Windows Defender omvatten perfecte (6.0) scores in de categorieën 'Bescherming', 'Prestaties' en Bruikbaarheid '. De testperiode heeft betrekking op mei tot en met juni van dit jaar en alleen F-Secure SAFE 17, Kaspersky Internet Security 19 en Norton Security 22.17 hebben dezelfde perfecte scores behaald als Windows Defender versie 4.18.
