    Windows Server 2016 already had Windows Defender and you just need to make sure it is enabled.
    Take a look at:
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/threat-protection/microsoft-defender-antivirus/microsoft-defender-antivirus-on-windows-server-2016
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/security/windows-defender/windows-defender-overview-windows-server
    It is able to remove all known and also several 0-days and unknown malwares based on their behavior.
