The Windows Defender Management library pack gives an understanding of the Windows Defender landscape. The core points of Windows Defender are that both the Engine and Signature files are up to date and that scans are regularly running and the pack delivers this knowledge.

There are two dashboards to use. The first, Overview gives an understanding of the landscape compliance in terms of engine versions and Defender functionality enabled.

The second, Signatures and Scans ensures that the software is up to date from a antivirus signature and scanning perspective.
