Windows security is generally integrated into every device running Microsoft’s operating system. It safeguards your devices and files from malware and hacker attacks through a variety of methods. This includes basic antivirus protection, a firewall, and other tools to protect against data loss. You can access and manage these settings through the Windows Security application or a small shield icon in the notification area on the taskbar.

Microsoft’s own antivirus software, Microsoft Defender Antivirus, is part of Windows. Windows Defender Security Center was the name of the initial versions. It provides basic chip-to-cloud security and is completely free. It can also be used conjunction with other security solutions, and it is able detect threats that other security solutions fail to detect.

One of the most important features is reputation-based security. It uses an online database to evaluate apps and websites for their reputation scores. If a site or program has a low score, it’s blocked from running on the device. It was able to block dangerous programs and phishing websites in our tests. However it didn’t block nearly as many third-party competitors.

Other features include firewalls and network protection, which monitors your network as well as the applications you use to determine if they are secure. Another option is Device security which allows advanced hardware features like core isolation. This can protect your device from certain types or kinds of attacks, however, you’ll require a compatible device to make use of it.
