How the evolution of security threats impacts businesses

Delivering software solutions that can help mitigate and prevent cyber security threats continues to be a top priority here at Microsoft. I shared back in late February that with Windows 8 we made substantial security updates since Windows 7, like the delivery of ground breaking malware resistance (e.g: Secure and Trusted Boot), much improved data protection (e.g.: Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0, Device Encryption, support for Encrypted Hard Drives), and modern access control (e.g.: Virtual Smartcards, Dynamic Access Control). And as my colleague Dustin shared a few weeks ago, Windows 8.1 brings even more security features into the hands of organizations, including: touch based fingerprint biometrics, a selective wipe capability with our Remote Data Removal feature that can allow IT to wipe corporate data off of BYOD devices, device encryption on all editions of Windows, and a cloud-based malware detection service called Provable PC Health, just to name a few.

These feature enhancements and additions are being delivered only a year after the launch of Windows 8 because of the rapidly changing threat landscape – and it’s our goal to continue to stay ahead of these threats. Today, hackers are targeting both small and large businesses, government organizations and non-profits. If you think you’re that too small of a target for hackers think again – as data says otherwise – and there is a growing and prolific black market for selling your customers’ personal data and credit card information. Consequently making sure that you and your customers’ data is secure with the latest hardware and software technology has never been more important.
