Microsoft Releases Security Essentials 2

Nathan Simon Nathan Simon Profile: Nathan Simon

Microsoft released v.2 of their antivirus application, unannounced, not sure why. Maybe it wasn’t a major release to them, but when you change the primary number, from 1 to 2, I would consider that a major release! I first learned about it off my iPhone via Pulse. So I am not passing it onto my readers, I do have readers don’t I? 🙂

A few of the updates to be noted are that they improved Windows Firewall integration, you can now inspect traffic as you surf, and they added a better heuristic scanning engine.

Even though going here doesn’t show any sign of updates, if you “Download Now” you will get Microsoft Security Essentials 2.0.
