Windows security is generally built-in to any device running a version of the Microsoft operating system. It shields your files and devices from malware and hacker attacks by using different methods. This includes basic antivirus protection, a firewall, and other tools to protect against data loss. Windows Security or the small shield icon that appears on the taskbar’s notification area allows users to control and access the settings.

Microsoft Defender Antivirus is bundled with Windows. In the initial versions of the software it was known as Windows Defender Security Center. It offers basic chip-to-cloud security and is completely free. It also works alongside other security products and is able to detect threats that others miss.

One of the most important features is reputation-based security. It utilizes an online database to evaluate websites and apps for their reputation scores. If a site or program is not able to meet the standards, it will be blocked from running on your device.

Other features include firewall & network protection, which monitors your network and the applications you use to determine if they are secure. Device security is another feature that allows advanced hardware features, such as core isolation. This feature can be used to protect your device from certain types of attacks. However, you’ll need to use a computer that is compatible to take advantage.
