Microsoft's next big Windows update to use AI to fight malware

Microsoft built some Exploit Mitigation Experience Toolkit protections into Windows 10 natively already.

The new capabilities, claimed Avi Sagiv, principal program manager of Windows Defender ATP at Microsoft in a security blog post, is meant to "stop attacks as they happen..." This process is similar to how Microsoft releases major Windows updates to general users, allowing it to iron out device-specific bugs before releasing the update.

Windows Defender Exploit Guard will be included into Windows Defender ATP response capabilities to make application control easier on Windows 10 device.

Windows Defender Exploit Guard makes Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) native to Windows 10 and, along with new vulnerability mitigations, helps make vulnerabilities more hard to exploit.

In addition to securing their platform from threats and equipping it to fight them better, the company will also be harnessing cloud intelligence to mitigate threats.

And that brings us to Windows phones. The incident has taken place at the time when computer has become a part of people's daily life and the economy of most of the countries - developing and developed both - is based on digital data being produced on Windows 10 powered computer machines. It was the third critical Windows Defender vulnerability Project Zero researchers have uncovered in the past seven weeks.

Application Guard blocks access to memory, local storage, installed applications, corporate network endpoints, and other resources according to Microsoft.

Windows 10 Pro is aimed at small businesses and includes all the features of Windows 10 Home plus device and app management, data protection services, and support for remote and mobile working.

Administrators may restrict some of the functionality however.

Rob Lefferts, Partner Director at Windows & Devices Group, Security & Enterprise in a blog post explained the Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) would include seamless integration across the entire Windows threat protection stack to protect, detect and respond. But, with no indication that anything has changed, the headline now reads "Heaps of Windows 10 internal builds, private source code leak online". Furthermore, Microsoft has published the detailed changelog on what's new for Mobiles with Build 15063.447.

Now You: What's your take on these new features?

Microsoft has historically made the updates available to all insiders at once, but the portion of Microsoft's 10 million Insiders on its slow ring track may expect to receive more stable updates than those in the bleeding edge "fast ring". We got a glimpse at this with the Windows 10 Creators Update released earlier this year: You could decide to install the update a week before its official release, manually update the day it debuted, or wait for Microsoft to decide your device was ready to update.
