Microsoft Defender Antivirus: Cloud-delivered protection for near-instant detection and blocking of new and emerging threats. Always-on scanning using advanced file and process behavior monitoring and other heuristics (also known as “real-time protection”).

Real-time endpoint detection and response insights correlated with endpoint vulnerabilities.

Always remediate PUA: Potentially unwanted applications (PUA) are a category of software that can cause your machine to run slowly, display unexpected ads, or at worst, install other software, which might be unexpected or unwanted.

Tamper protection: During some kinds of cyber-attacks, bad actors try to disable security features, such as anti-virus protection, on your machines.
