The official introduction of Microsoft’s new cross-platform Defender software for individuals. The software has been available in preview in the United States for a few months, and it’s now available with a Microsoft 365 Personal and Family subscription on Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android.

This new Windows Defender software for Windows serves as a central point for assessing and monitoring security measures across all of your family’s devices. It can recognize 3rd party antivirus solutions from Norton, MacAfee, and other firms in addition to the built-in Microsoft Defender antivirus on Windows PCs.

Microsoft updates security intelligence in antimalware products on a regular basis to keep up with the latest threats and to adjust detection logic, making Microsoft Defender Antivirus and other Microsoft antimalware solutions more accurate at detecting threats.

The desktop program can also check for new and existing threats in real time, as well as deliver real safety notifications and security suggestions to keep all of your devices safe.

In some situations, the Microsoft Defender app on Windows 10 and Windows 11 will lead users to the Windows Security app to perform certain actions, such as launching a manual scan.

The Microsoft Defender software for Android can protect users from spam and phishing attempts. Microsoft Defender can only provide anti-phishing protection on iOS since Apple ensures that all apps in the Android Market are sandboxed and devoid of known malware.

Individual users can utilize the same Microsoft Defender for Endpoint software that Microsoft employs to protect commercial customers against malware. As we look forward, we will continue to bring more protections together under a single dashboard, including features like identity theft protection and a secure online connection,” said Vasu Jakkal, CVP of Microsoft Security.
