How Windows Defender harnesses the power of machine learning to help make Windows 10 Microsoft’s most secure client OS

SECWindows Defender harnesses the power of machine learning, contributing to making Windows 10 Microsoft’s most secure client operating system and providing increased protection against security threats facing consumers and commercial enterprises today.

To reduce the number of both false negative and false positive detections, Microsoft’s automation pipeline uses a variety of tools and technologies to process malware and unwanted software. These include:

  • Machine learning
  • Clustering
  • Cosmos
  • Azure and Cloud

To read more on how this all works, check out the new blog post on Microsoft’s Malware Protection Center blog below:

Windows Defender: Rise of the machine (learning)

Note that if you manage endpoint protection for Windows 10 computers, then you must configure System Center 2012 Configuration Manager to update and distribute malware definitions for Windows Defender. Because Windows Defender is included in Windows 10, an endpoint protection agent does not need to be deployed to those clients.
