Microsoft’s new Windows 10 OS release is all set to turn fully secure in next couple of years or so. This means, that all Windows 10 users can breathe a sigh of relief from all kinds of cyber threats in near future.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella spoke about his company’s future security offerings at Microsoft’s Government Cloud Forum in Washington, DC yesterday and said that the new OS is capable of taking in all possible future security updates rolled out from the company.
Already, Windows 10 has additional security protections such as Windows Hello- a facial recognition login feature and Device Guard for protecting users from untrusted applications.
In coming days, Microsoft will be developing a vast intelligence network that helps the software giant determine what threats are coming from where and who is the originator, what are their whereabouts( location, access mode, IP address, IP service, web history and such) remotely hacking and shutting down their OS services if found guilty.
This can help curb cyber crime happening around the world to a major extent, provided Windows 10 users do not alter the default available security settings.
However, ‘User Privacy’ will be vastly affected by this online spying feature of Windows 10.
So, we have to sacrifice some of our concerns to get a fool proof (hmm….atleast on paper) security from Microsoft.
