Filter away pattern on windows event log report


Current report for the following event log

index=windows  EventType=4 host=* | table _time host EventCode Message


Message=Installation Successful: Windows successfully installed the following update: Security Intelligence Update for Microsoft Defender Antivirus - KB2267602 (Version 1.323.1450.0)


I try to filter away if event if message contains Security Intelligence Update for Microsoft Defender Antivirus

index=windows  EventType=4 host=*  
| where Message="%Security Intelligence Update for Microsoft Defender Antivirus%"
| table _time host EventCode Message

But seems message cannot filter
