    Valentijn Scholten I think you're missing the point, Windows Defender updates only install automatically if you have Download & Install selected which is fine for a client machine running Windows 10, but it's not good practice for servers, it never has been and it never will be.

    Definition updates aren't disruptive and don't fall under the same category as security patches, it should be an automated process with no user intervention, like it is with every other anti-virus product on the market.

    You can't compare the update schedule on a Windows 10 box to a Server 2016 box, the 2 are completely different and so are the update schedule requirements, one affects a single user, the other affects a server which impacts the entire network if something goes wrong with a security patch.
