Does Windows 11 Need Antivirus?

As cyber threats rise as do the demands for security software that can protect devices from malware and other malicious programs. However, some people may be wondering if the security features included in Windows 11 are enough to ensure their systems are safe or if they could benefit from implementing a third-party antivirus program.

It’s an appropriate question as Microsoft is known for making major improvements when it comes to the operating system’s security. It’s also a leading company in the tech industry, because it was among the first companies to require hardware security features, such as Secure Boot and TPM 2.0.

This means that many may be able to upgrade their computers to the most recent version of the operating system, while enjoying increased security measures. While this is great but it’s important to keep in mind that no security measure is invincible. It’s essential to decide on the level of protection you require by assessing your requirements.

It’s important to note that Microsoft Defender, the antivirus solution that comes with the operating system, has gained an excellent reputation within the market over time. It has been highly praised by security testing companies such as AV-TEST for its efficiency and effectiveness in providing real-time protection to the operating system as well as its users. Some PCWorld staff members opt to combine it with a malware-specific program for additional coverage However, putting too many security programs can result in them fighting each other, and thereby diminish their overall effectiveness.
