Windows Defender gains perfect 6/6 AV-Test Perfect Score

Windows Defender has been improved over the years as part of their enterprise Windows Enterprise ATP (paid service).
Enterprise is what is driving Microsoft to improve their AV solution which then gets passed down to consumers.

Here's an older article explaining how Windows Defender was capable of blocking new ransomware in about 12 minutes worldwide.

In recent news, they have sandboxed their AV so that malware that compromises the AV itself won't have a zombie administrative process.
