To install Windows Defender on Server 2012, install the Desktop Experience feature from the Server Manager console. This will install Windows Defender on Server 2012. ❗ Windows Defender that comes with Server 2012 is not an enterprise level antivirus solution, in my opinion. It is however, better than nothing.
