Windows 10 security is sure to become the talking point of the next few years, as users of previous versions of the operating system move to the modern platform.
So important it is, that Microsoft is keen to details the new enhancement they are making when it comes to the overall security of their operating system — even at this early a stage of its development. In fact, the company has posted a rather lengthy piece on it.
This blog post goes into elaborate detail regarding the new security features that are coming to Windows 10, and while it’s an illuminating read, here are some key highlights:
- Multi-factor authentication is built right into the operating system.
- It will also be available on devices, eliminating the need for additional hardware.
- Windows 10 can automatically encrypt corporate apps, data, emails and other sensitive information while it arrives from corporate location networks.
- Same will be the case on Windows Phone.
- VPN control options are streamline and enhanced in Windows 10, and users will be able to select from constant connectivity to specifying individual apps that can access VPN.
- Windows 10 also allows organizations to lock down devices, and only allow trusted apps.
All are welcome enhancements, and will go a long way in boosting security, particularly for enterprises and corporate usage.
Interestingly, these are only the first details Microsoft is sharing for the time being. Additional improvements and more features are in development, and the company is sure to talk about them as we get closer to release, next year.
