What Is Windows Security?

No comments

Windows security is typically built into every device that runs Microsoft’s operating system. It protects your files and devices from malware and hacker attacks through a variety of techniques. This includes basic antivirus protection and a fire wall and other tools to prevent data loss. Windows Security or the small shield icon on the taskbar’s notification bar allows users to manage and access the settings.

Microsoft’s own antivirus software, Microsoft Defender Antivirus, is included with Windows. In the beginning versions of the software it was referred to as Windows Defender Security Center. The application offers fundamental chip-to cloud security and is free. It can also be used in conjunction with other security solutions and is able to detect threats that other security solutions miss.

One of the main features is reputation-based protection which makes use of a massive online database to check apps and websites for their reputation scores. If a site or program has a poor score the program or site will be blocked from running on your device. It was effective in blocking malware and phishing sites in our tests. However it didn’t block nearly as many as other third-party competitors.

Other features include firewall & network protection, which analyzes your network and the programs you use to determine if they are secure. Another option is Device security that allows for advanced hardware-level features such as core isolation. This feature is able to protect your device against specific kinds of attacks. However, you’ll need to use a compatible computer to make use of.
