Microsoft Defender is the same Windows Defender software that was preinstalled in Windows until Microsoft decided to rename it. It was this year only when Microsoft changed the name of Windows Defender to Microsoft Defender and it all makes sense now. Some more things were also announced by Microsoft that they were going to bring to Linux and this included a new chromium-based web browser. This is the chromium-based Edge browser that will be available for Linux and now it also makes sense that Microsoft decided to bring their new web browser as well.

With Microsoft Defender Linux sure can make a difference on the side of it that seems too vulnerable to some people. New antivirus has a lot to give as it lets Linux have some extra features that include network protection, reputation analysis and exploit protection, etc. It’s all the details as part of leaks and the only sure thing is that Microsoft is willing to work with Linux on this one properly. The features are still unclear but next year isn’t too far and everything will be revealed over time.
