A closer look at some of the features prepared for the build, it is noticeable that Microsoft has put quite the accent on bolstering security.

Look no further than Adobe Flash Reader’s problems as attackers heavily exploited a backdoor of sorts not that long ago.
The Windows Defender threat detecting tool will get some pretty important improvements in the upcoming Creators Update, pertaining to their threat analysis library and efficiency in threat detection. To achieve better results, Microsoft has teamed up with FireEye which will offer their services as well as their iSIGHT technology to improve the qualities of Microsoft’s Windows Defender.
In addition to the Windows Defender changes, users can expect a new Microsoft Edge extension called TrueKey, which will safeguard your passwords and indirectly your private information . Microsoft Edge was already classified as the most secure browser solution, topping even the likes of Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. The addition of TrueKey will only make it sturdier in the face of cyber-threats.
The future looks bright for Microsoft’s Windows 10 as the Creators Update is awaited by the masses of eagerly anticipating consumers.
