• Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will have more to offer than new mixed-reality experiences.

    When the desktop operating system update arrives on Oct. 17, it will be able to tap into an upgraded version of Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) to help customers protect end-user systems and the data stored in them.

    Windows Defender ATP is a cloud-based data suite of security services from Microsoft that combines machine learning, behavioral analytics and threat intelligence collected by a network of Windows devices and cloud services in the wild, along with other technologies, to detect breaches and zero-day attacks.

    Industry-wide, the pressure is on to prevent data breaches. On Sept. 7, credit reporting and monitoring firm Equifax said it was the victim of a massive data breach that potentially affects 143 million consumers in the U.S. Attackers accessed a trove of sensitive personal identifiable information, including names, addresses, birth dates, driver’s license numbers and social security numbers.
