Kaspersky Security Cloud & Windows Defender Cloud-delivered protection

Recommended Posts

Kaspersky Security Cloud Free

Windows 10 Pro – 1909 64Bit

Do Kaspersky recommend leaving Windows Defender Cloud-delivered protection switched On or Off?

As I use Kaspersky, Windows Defender real-time protection is obviously not active, but Cloud-delivered protection and Automatic sample submission can still be switched on and off.

I have Cloud-delivered protection enabled and Automatic sample submission switched off. What Defender settings do Kaspersky recommend? Never had any issues, just curious.

Thank you. Thoughts

Hi Thoughts,

According to Microsoft article here the Cloud-delivered protection is available in Windows Defender active mode, and, according to the same article, with a third party anti-virus installed Windows Defender should go to disabled mode to escape conflicts. 

As you can find here Windows Defender is not compatible with Kaspersky Security Cloud. 

Conclusion: it is recommended to disable cloud-delivered protection in order to prevent possible compatibility issues.
