    Dissecting Windows 10 Security

    New features such as the Antimalware Scan Interface, Virtualization-Based Security and threat analytics are making Windows much more difficult to exploit, but hackers and researchers demonstrate it's still not impossible.

    Every time Microsoft has released a new version of Windows over the past two decades, the company has raised the bar with improved security and each upgrade immediately becomes a target of hackers and cybercriminals looking to find new holes in the OS. Last year's Windows 10 release and the Anniversary Update release pushed out by Microsoft two months ago are no exception.

    Microsoft has added some significant new security features to the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, code-named "Redstone," that experts and longtime critics admit are quite impressive. Overall, IT organizations will welcome these new security features, experts say. Given the Anniversary Update is the enterprise equivalent of a first service pack for Windows 10, though arguably with more features than typical service packs, enterprises are looking to roll out new systems or upgrade to the new OS in the coming year, according to a number of surveys, because most enterprises passed on Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 7 was released seven years ago. While organizations' PCs with Windows 10 will be more secure than systems with earlier versions, the OS still isn't impenetrable.

    Windows Hello with its biometrics signing on is security wise a step in the right direction, but it does have its weaknesses.
    Facial recognition does seem to depend on ambient lighting conditions, so M$ during setup ask for an alternative pin in order to sign in.
    This of course leaves it open to keyloggers, if using a keyboard.
