Microsoft Security Essentials Scores Incredibly Well in New Antivirus Tests - SoftpediaMSE achieved 100 percent legitimate accuracy
It’s generally believed that Microsoft Security Essentials isn’t the best antivirus solution out there, but only a basic product that can protect your computer until you install a more advanced security app, but a new series of tests conducted by Dennis Technology Labs claim otherwise.
MSE scored incredibly well and reached legitimate accuracy of 100 percent and total accuracy of 95 percent, which makes it one of the top security solutions on the market, along with Kaspersky, Norton, ESET, and Trend Micro.
Microsoft’s antivirus, which is available free of charge for users running Windows Vista or Windows 7, and is part of Windows Defender in Windows 8 and 10, received the AAA award, which is the highest rating a security product can get in the aforementioned tests.
