Microsoft Security Essentials to get engine upgrade this week

Recommended Posts

The update to the anti-malware engine will be starting with Microsoft Security Essentials and will also update security solutions such as: Forefront Client Security, Forefront Endpoint Protection, and Windows Intune Endpoint Protection.

The new engine version will be in the range of 1.1.700X.0. Aside from the change in the version number no other actual information has been revealed about what changes are being made. However, with the engine receiving an upgrade it is believed that the detection will improve. If this is anything like the last engine upgrade then it may be a little late.

Considering the recent studies have shown that the Microsoft Security Essentials is the most used security solution worldwide, many users will benefit from the engine upgrade. Those studies have shown estimates that over 10.6% of users are running Microsoft Security Essentials. More people are using Microsoft Security Essentials than other free and pay anti-virus solutions. While this may be surprising to some, I definitely must say, "Well done, Microsoft."
