Hello WSUS Experts,

I am trying on Windows Server 2019 WSUS configuration. I do not see Windows Defender products. The end goal is to deploy Windows Defender updates from WSUS Server.

However, as per Microsoft documentation, it should be available. ..

Deploy Windows Defender definition updates
To do this, follow these steps:

Open the WSUS Administrator console and then select Options at the bottom of the console tree.

Select Products and Classifications and verify that the Windows Defender check box is selected under the Products tab.

Verify that the Definition Updates check box is selected under the Classifications tab, and then select OK.

Is the Microsoft Document is not up to date?

I suspect the Microsoft Defender is moved to any other product to select in WSUS console as a different Product ?

    Thanks for sharing.

    This also solves Defender Definition Updates for computers without internet connection which rely solely on WSUS for updates.

    Once again, Microsoft's logic is not my logic.
    I miss a search bar in WSUS' catalog.
    I was searching for a main topic of Microsoft Defender or Windows Defender (thanks MS for constantly changing names).
    I overlooked this specific setting.
