Huge security update to Windows 10 will protect users from malware


When the next Windows 10 Creators Update arrives in September it will come complete with a whole host of next features.

One of the new features, Timeline, will allow users to scroll through their applications and workspaces that they are using on their usual machine along with any other Microsoft apps that may have been used on other devices such as smartphones or tablets.

Another useful addition could be the cloud clipboard. This allows you to copy and paste text from one machine to another. Power saving is always an issue and a new update called Power Throttling is included to help with this.

With the recent issues with Malware, a welcome addition with be the improvements to security announcing that the “next generation security is coming to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.”

When asked about the update Rob Lefferts, Partner Director, Windows & Devices Group, Security & Enterprise, said: “New security features in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update allows us to be more front footed and make life harder for the bad guys. Today, I’m excited to share how we’re raising the bar by hardening our Windows platform, taking advantage of cloud intelligence and bringing everything together in one end-to-end solution.”

The Richmond based firm intends make their platform more secure by isolating threats on the most vulnerable areas such as browsers and apps.

“From C-Level to Sec-Ops, our customers tell us they want an integrated, single pane of glass security solution to consume, manage and integrate security for their fleet of devices.” Lefferts added.

“When considering the rapid pace new cyber threats are released in the wild, we agree that the industry could do better.

“That’s why we have developed a highly differentiated vision that brings together advanced data science, machine learning, automation, and behavioural analysis capable of blocking the types of malware and advanced attacks all in one place.”
