The Windows 10 Creators Update introduced a new experience called the Windows Defender Security Center to make it is easier for you to view and control the security protections you choose and better understand the security features already protecting you on your Windows 10 device.

Starting with Windows 10 build 17093, the Device security page was added to the Windows Defender Security Center that provides you with status reporting and management of security features built into your devices including toggling features on to provide enhanced protections.

One Device security is Core isolation that provides virtualization-based security features to protect core parts of your device.

Memory integrity is a security feature of Core isolation that prevents attacks from inserting malicious code into high-security processes.
