One of the valuable features of the solution is the small updates that keep my machine relatively clean from any infections.

The solution's main antivirus capabilities are okay. So far, they have kept us safe.

This product is flexible, and it is very easy to get updates from the Microsoft website.

The features I have found most valuable are the ransomware and malware protection. The solution detects malware live and whenever it detects suspicious activity, it quarantines it.

The solution integrates very well with Windows applications and Microsoft endpoint products.

I am using it for very simple purposes. It is perfect and quite effective. I have been using it for a while, and I have never had any virus infection, data leak, or other security breaches.

It works fine for standalone purposes. If you log on to OneDrive, it has ransomware protection.

The biggest benefit to Windows Defender is that it is built-in to the operating system by Microsoft.

The fact that it's from Microsoft, you don't have many false positives, unlike products from other vendors might have.

We have liked the fact that it comes with Microsoft Windows 10 and it is constantly updated with all new virus definitions. It is also updated with new security features on a regular basis.

Automatic scanning and cleaning of viruses is the best and most valuable feature helping this tool to thrive. If any viruses are found, they are cleaned automatically.

The most valuable feature is that we can use the solution right out of the box without too much configuration.

Defender is integrated into the operating system. It's integrated with everything. You don't have to spend time analyzing what you have to do to be sure that the integration is okay between the security tool and all the other apps. This, from my point of view, is the main advantage.

It's really stable. I've used a lot of stuff, a lot of products, like ESET and Kaspersky. None of them are comparable with this one. This one is much better.

This is a very go, proactive solution to threat protection using advanced analysis.

I like the real-time protection features. Windows Defender will detect if there's a threat like a Trojan or something like that but Kaspersky lets it run normally.

Within its class I think, it has a high and decent detection rate.

It's free. There is no additional cost. It's part of Windows.

Ensures that I'm working with a product that gets updated regularly without me having to remember to do it. Since it's a Microsoft product, I'm confident that it requires a low use of system resources. The benefit of that being that my computer isn't constantly being drained.
