Cyber threats have been on the rise lately. Individuals/organizations regularly lose their information through computer-related attacks.
Some of the attacks could cause the documents to get corrupt.
Others may make them completely missing and cause system malfunction. In some instances, the documents would be encrypted with ransomware.
Whether you have experienced this or not, protecting your devices with antivirus applications is important. Antivirus programs can shield your documents and entire system from hackers. They can help protect your privacy, protect your systems against ransomware, and generally maintain integrity.
Microsoft Defender, which many users still dub Windows Defender (its initial name), is an in-built antivirus that comes with MS Windows. The program promises to deliver comprehensive real-time protection against viruses, spyware, and malware across apps, email, the web, and the cloud.
