Since Microsoft has always tried to make their latest operating system (OS) series a step ahead in terms of security and privacy features, the tech giant this time has introduced Windows 8 with an advanced Windows Defender. Apart from making improvements in the software user interface (UI), the company has also added features like UEFI Secure Boot optimizations, and the extension of the SmartScreen Filter across the OS. The Windows 8 built-in security software is made available for free with an active install of the system software on the device and is quite easy to use and operate.

Offering a high-end protection with great features like other competitor antivirus software in its class, the improved version doesn't only focus on spyware but protects against all kinds of malware. Running in the background and safeguarding your Windows devices from various kinds of malware, the Windows 8 Defender is more secure, reliable, and protected than its previous versions.
