Windows 10 devices come with various security tools to help ensure your computer is protected. Windows Security, formerly known as Microsoft Defender, provides antivirus and malware protection, a firewall and security settings to ensure you are safe.

Its real-time antimalware Core isolation, as well as hardware-level features (like Secure Boot and the security processor) can help you safeguard yourself from various types of threats, and without slowing down your system. Windows Security also lets you keep track of your device’s health and performance, control your account security, device sign-in options, and more.

Even if you’ve got best passwords and security measures in place, it’s possible for malware to sneak into your system and cause issues. It is essential to regularly backup your data and update your operating system. Windows 10 comes with a number of backup tools that include cloud storage services that make it simple to protect your files.

Windows Backup, File History or Recovery Drives can be used to regularly backup your system and restore it in the event of emergency. You should also think about cloud-based solutions like OneDrive, Google Drive, as well as other tools for backup in the enterprise.

Limiting access to your device is important. Be sure that no one has Administrator privileges. This will stop anyone who uses your computer to make major changes that may cause harm to your data. This can be done by creating individual Standard accounts or by limiting access to the device via Parental Controls.
