Microsoft released Windows 10 last year with more featured Graphical User Interface. Windows 10 is the most Secured OS in today’s world. There are about 300 million windows 10 users. The most liked OS of Microsoft is Windows 10. Windows 10 is a just an example how the future of OS is going to change. But what was the reason behind giving the early update to Windows 10. You all must be thinking that it has more functions to do and with more options through which your work will be done easily.
Yes you’er right, Windows 10 Anniversary update has many things to do for you. It was also the birthday of Windows 10 on 2 August 2016 and Microsoft releases Anniversary update. Anniversary update has cameup with more features than Windows 10 and provide new experience to the user. But I was searching for the main reason that why did Microsoft has given us a big update so soon. It was Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection behind the Anniversary update.
Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection Behind the Scene
Windows Defender Advanced Threat protection is the only reason to bring the Anniversary update to us and added some of the new features to update. Anniversary update was big and not with much new features. The update contains Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection which was lagging in Windows 10. Windows 10 was secured but some what it was lagging in security purpose. So, Microsoft has comeup with it’s weakness and provided the best security to Windows user.
Windows Defender is not new to Windows OS. Before Windows 8 it was Microsoft essential security and after it is Windows Defender which is the Anti-virus provided to us from Microsoft in Free. Time to Time Microsoft has made changes to Windows Defender to provide the security to it’s user. But this time they have brought it in the form of update.
Windows Defender ATP provides their customer the best way to protect their enterprise. Thousands of cyberattacks were reported in 2015 by customers to Microsoft which were getting more sophisticated.

What Hackers usually do to breakdown a cooperate or enterprise, they normally do social engineering or zero-day vulnerabilities.
Windows Defender ATP Uses Following Technology
