System Security is always a concern of PC users. Windows 10 provides you in-built protection from viruses and malware threats. In general, if you are using latest Windows 10 updates, you don't need to spend on another antivirus program for normal home usages.
Along with Windows 10 Creators Update, Microsoft is going one more step ahead to secure your PC further with a comprehensive dashboard 'Windows Defender Security Center'.
The new 'Windows Defender Security Center' is a new experience that Microsoft is going to ship with Windows 10 Creators Update and is already available to the Windows Insiders to explore the experience now and provide feedback. If you are a fast ring insider and running the latest preview build, you can find this under the 'All Apps' in Start Screen.
The Windows Defender Security Center includes five pillars that give you control and visibility of your device security, health and online safety experiences:
- Virus & threat protection: It provides a new view of your antivirus protection; whether it’s Windows Defender Antivirus that comes free with Windows 10 or any other Antivirus software from one of the ecosystem partners.
- Device performance & health: It provides a single view of your latest Windows updates, drivers, battery life and storage capacity.
- Firewall & network protection: It provides information on the network connections and active Windows Firewall settings, as well as links to network troubleshooting information.
- App & browser control: It allows you to adjust settings for SmartScreen for apps and browsers helping you be more informed and stay safer online.
- Family options: It gives you an easy way to connect to the family options available online.
Windows Defender program manager Shekhar Saxena explains the security features and controls available in the new Windows Defender Security Center app coming with the Windows 10 Creators Update. The new app makes it easy for customers to view and manage security protections, device health and family settings in one centralized location in Windows 10. Check it out below:
Windows Defender Security Center is going to help you become more informed and make safety simple. This new experience naturally supports customer choice in selecting an Antivirus product. In addition, if your subscription or paid antivirus software should expire, Windows Defender Antivirus will kick in to provide protection by default until you take further action. Be a Windows Insider and provide feedback to Microsoft with the preview builds to make the technology industry to create safer experiences for everyone with Windows 10.
