What is Microsoft Security

Microsoft Security Provides Essential Cyber Threat Protection, Detection, and Mitigation Solutions for Windows 10 and 11 Users

Microsoft has long been the leader in home and business computing technologies. From desktop computers to portable smart devices, users rely on Microsoft hardware and the Windows operating system (OS) to manage and support digital tasks of all kinds. But with this ubiquity comes danger – cybercriminals and advanced threat actors actively target Microsoft resources and users in hopes of gaining access to critical data or systems.

To help ensure continued data security for various types of users, the Microsoft security suite provides advanced threat protection and response capabilities.

Microsoft Windows versions 10 and higher come packaged with Windows Security, providing the latest in antivirus and antimalware protection. Built directly into the modern Windows OS, Windows Microsoft security offers essential defense solutions against various kinds of malicious software, such as viruses, spyware, rootkits, and trojan horses.
