|In a blog post about Windows 10 product key security development efforts, Microsoft said the operating system was a worthy upgrade to security.
In recent years, Microsoft has been encouraging business users and businesses to upgrade to Windows 10 pro product key, especially in the context of growing cyber-security threats, according to Neowin. A few months ago, the company said Windows 10 security updates helped stop the outbreak of Petya malware.
Windows Defender team leader Tanmay Ganacharya said 2017 was a worrying year for ransomware attacks with three global outbreaks affecting millions of computers, with over 120 New ransomware.
Ganacharya notes that, although Windows 10 is installed on more devices than Windows 7 (new statistics from StatCounter) in the period from June 11 to 1117, the number of ransomware attacks on Windows 7 has tripled. ,4 times. The reason is explained because Windows 7 does not have built-in high security solution available on Windows 10.
Ganacharya then declared that the WannaCry offensive last year was primarily aimed at Windows 7 computers, while Windows 10 had mitigating techniques to control the personnel making the attack even more difficult.
Ganacharya explains more about the Windows 10 multi-layered defense system with the example of Petya's defense in June 2017. Although the full patch of Windows 7 professional product key with an updated anti-virus software to combat the spread of ransomware many users of this platform has become a victim of it.
On the other hand, Windows 10 users are relatively secure thanks to the Windows Defender Application Control, Credential Guard and Windows Defender System Guard (Secure Boot) utilities. Similarly, Microsoft's latest operating system is also protected against Bad Rabbit ransomware attacks, encrypting drives and files by disguising itself as an Adobe Flash installer on infected sites.
Ganacharya goes on to say that all of these examples demonstrate that Windows 10 is really a worthwhile upgrade for both business and consumer users, as it boasts some safeguard features. He also noted that security and performance seekers can use Windows 10 S, with Edge as the default browser and only allowing downloads from the Windows Store.
Small and medium businesses can be affected by ransomware using Windows Defender Exploit Guard, Windows Defender Application Guard, Microsoft Exchange Online Protection, and Office 365 Advanced Antreat Protection to protect their data.
