Short Bytes: Speaking at the Microsoft Government Cloud Forum in Washington D.C., Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella praised the latest Windows OS for its security measures. “The virtualization infrastructure coupled with security features is what makes Windows 10 the most secure operating system,” he said.
Okay, Mr. Nadella, we are listening!
Microsoft has tried its best to create Windows 10 a “perfect” OS. The company is leaving no stone unturned to praise its operating system and inspire the people to board the Windows 10 upgrade train. Along these lines, the Windows executives have pointed out the best features on the operating system from time-to-time. This time, Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s CEO, has taken the opportunity of praising the security of the OS at an event in Washington.
“In Windows 10 we have great technologies – core security technologies,” Mr. Nadella said. “In fact the virtualization infrastructure coupled with security features is what makes Windows 10 the most secure operating system.”
It should be noted that last week Microsoft started rolling out the Threshold 2 November update for Windows 10, that makes the operating system more enterprise-ready.
With Windows 10, Microsoft has vowed to replace the passwords with Windows Hello. This technology uses hardware like special cameras for authentication and ensures a hassle-free Windows 1o experience. While the Windows operating systems are the ones most vulnerable to attacks, it’d be interesting to see how Windows 10 performs in the longer run.
This new update has brought more features to the OS on the security front. Mr. Nadella said that Redmond spends billions to keep the user data safe in the form of R&D to embed more security measures into its products.
Speaking at the Microsoft Government Cloud Forum in Washington D.C., Mr. Nadella tried hard to convince the user base as the OS is constating facing heat over its telemetry options that can’t be stopped in consumer versions of Windows 10.
