Check out the latest av testing at AV-Comparatives:

https://chart.av-comparatives.org/chart1.php

Of the 18 AVs tested, only four got perfect 100% results, one of them was Windows Defender.
Looks more and more like WD is now really a legitimate and powerful scanner, way to go Microsoft! :tup2:

Although aimed at enterprise, this does explain the reason for the significant up-sweep in results. Why Windows Defender Antivirus is the most deployed in the enterprise – Microsoft Secure

I'm not convinced Microsoft bundling their own AV/AM software is a good thing, arguably it could stifle legitimate competition from entering the market in the same way their browser dominance did in the past.

cf and make up your own mind if they are in any way related:
