Is Windows 10 secure ? Following yesterday’s official launch of Microsoft’s Windows 10, David Chismon, security researcher at MWR InfoSecurity commented below on the windows 10 security.
David Chismon, Security Researcher at MWR InfoSecurity :
“Microsoft may have difficulty convincing enterprises to adapt as enterprises are highly invested in Windows 7. The risk of updates breaking features will put off many organisations unless those fears can be suitably managed by Microsoft. Some of the key selling points of Windows 10 will not appeal to corporates.”
Looking at Microsoft’s decision not to release Windows 11, just free, frequent updates to Windows 10, similar to OSX, David says :
“This could be a good move as security features will be introduced to current versions, whilst traditionally such new features have been held back for service packs. However, large organisations may be wary lest a new feature breaks a business critical application.”[su_box title=”About MWR InfoSecurity” style=”noise” box_color=”#336588″]Established in 2003, MWR InfoSecurity is a research-led information security consultancy, with a client list consisting of Dow Jones, NASDAQ, FTSE 100 companies and Government agencies & departments.
