Microsoft's Antivirus Scores Soar

It was reported this week that Windows Defender has achieved a huge increase in score and ranking. It still has a long way to go if it intends to compare to the likes of Kaspersky and Bitdefender, however.

Other than ESET going from 14 to 14.5 points, Microsoft was the only success story this time around. Its 9.5 point score in the previous test didn't even make the cutoff for certification. This time around, Microsoft brought up its protection score by 2.5 points and its performance score by 2.0 points, for a new total of 14 points overall.
